Ian Baker-Finch turned pro in 1979, and won the first of his 16 championships in 1983 at the New Zealand Open in Auckland. His first major victory in Australia came at the 1987 Australian Matchplay Championship at Kingston Heath. This was followed in 1988 by a stunning playoff hole to beat Craig Parry and Roger Mackay. He has a host of Australasian PGA Tour victories, most notably the 1990 Coolum Classic, 1992 Vines Classic, and the Open titles of Victoria, New South Wales, and Western Australia.

Amongst his credits, Baker-Finch has won tournaments on all four major tours, including the 1989 Colonial Invitational (USA), the 1988 ASO Open (Japan), the 1985 Scandanavian Open, and the 1993 Australian PGA.

Baker-Finch’s moment of glory came in 1991 when he won the British Open at Royal Birkdale Golf Club. His final round 66 was one of the greatest ever in major championship golf and included an outward of nine of 29 where he birdied 5 of his first 7 holes. His final 36 hole total (64-66) is the best ever by an Open Champion.
