BMW PGA Championship winner swapped golfing spikes for football boots

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.

The Korean star, who won the US Amateur Championship in 2009, took part in a Footgolf contest at Richings Park, hosted by sponsors GAC, with Graeme Storm and George Coetzee.

“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.
