Bio

Northern Ireland’s Jordan Brown became the lowest ranked player to win a ranking event for 28 years following his 9-8 victory against Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of the 2021 Welsh Open.

He won seven matches to reach his maiden ranking final, including wins against multiple ranking event winners Mark Selby and Stephen Maguire, before toppling reigning world champion O’Sullivan to lift the title.

Ranked 81st at the time, he became the lowest ranked champion at a full ranking event since Dave Harold (93rd) at the 1993 Asian Open and only the fourth player from Northern Ireland to win a ranking event joining Alex Higgins, Dennis Taylor and Mark Allen.

In 2020, Brown also qualified for the televised stages of the World Championship at the Crucible Theatre for the first time. He defeated Rory McLeod, Hossein Vafaei and Ryan Day at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield before losing out 10-6 to three-time world champion Mark Selby in the opening round at the Crucible Theatre.

His run was however enough to secure a fresh two-year tour card as one of the top four ranked players outside of the top 64 on the one-year ranking list.

Friends with fellow Antrim Ace Mark Allen, Brown has reached the last 32 stage of four ranking events and during the 2019/20 season scored impressive wins against top 16 players Stuart Bingham and David Gilbert.

In 2018, Brown reached the final of the EBSA European Championship, losing 7-2 to England’s Harvey Chandler. He subsequently came through Q School later that year to return to the World Snooker Tour for the first time since the 2009/10 season.

He is also a four-time winner of the Northern Ireland Amateur Championship.
