Bio

Michael White is a two-time ranking event winner who famously became the youngest player to make a century break at the age of just nine in 2001.

One of a number of players including Daniel Wells and Jamie Jones to hail from Neath, White turned professional in 2007 following a highly decorated amateur career which saw him become world amateur champion at the age of 14 and European under-19 champion.

He has since gone on to become a top 16 player, winning the invitational Shoot Out in March 2015 before claiming his first ranking title at the 2015 Indian Open just a week later.

His second ranking title would be earned at the 2017 Paul Hunter Classic where he defeated Shaun Murphy in the final to secure victory.

In 2013 he defeated countryman Mark Williams and Thailand’s Dechawat Poomjaeng to reach the quarter-finals of the World Championship on his Crucible debut, losing 13-6 to Ricky Walden. He has since returned in 2014 and 2016, losing at the last 32 stage on both occasions.

His highest break as a professional was a run of 145 at the 2011 Shanghai Masters qualifiers.
