Byeong-Hun An claims a game of Footgolf helped him feel relaxed in the build-up to his winning performance at Wentworth in the BMW PGA Championship.

“I’m so happy to have won the BMW PGA Championship and it will be a life-changing thing for me, getting me into a lot of events,” An said.
“I’m so grateful for the support of my sponsors GAC and I would like to thank them for that.
“I really enjoyed the Footgolf with the other GAC guys and it was a great way to start a week that I will remember for the rest of my life, helping me relax before such a big tournament.”
