Profile

Mark Brown (born 9 February 1975) is a Wellington professional golfer whose biggest win came when he claimed the Johnnie Walker Championship in 2008 on the European Tour.
 
Brown lost his card in 2011 and is looking to get back on a major tour in 2013.  His highlight of 2013 was shooting a 10-under-par 62 to win the IFQ event at Kingston Heath for The Open Championship.
 
Brown has enjoyed a consistent start to the PGA Tour of Australasia and is expected to be a frontrunner for the NZ Open at The Hills and Millbrook.
 
He has shown that at his best, Brown is truly world class.
 
His Johnnie Walker victory was a breakthrough win for the pro who had some success on the Charles Tour before returning to tour golf. 
  
Brown was born in Lower Hutt. He had played golf on the PGA Tour of Australasia, the Canadian Tour and the Asian Tour without much success until 2007 when he had four top ten finishes on the Asian Tour and finished 15th on the Order of Merit.

In 2008, he won his first Asian Tour event at the SAIL Open Golf Championship at Jaypee Greens in India. The following week he won the Johnnie Walker Classic, which was also held in India and was co-sanctioned by the European Tour and the PGA Tour of Australasia.
 
This victory propelled Brown to 64th in the Official World Golf Rankings. He finished 2008 by winning the PGA Tour of Australasia's Order of Merit.
