Joachim Brandt Hansen (born 18 August 1990) is a Danish professional golfer who currently plays on the European Tour.

Early life and amateur career[edit]

Hansen was born in Hillerød. He took up golf at the age of 12 enjoyed a successful amateur career which culminated with representing his country, and being the lowest-scoring player in the 2010 Eisenhower Trophy.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Hansen turned professional following this performance, earning a place on the Challenge Tour after three runner-up finishes on the third-tier Nordic League in 2011.

A further three runner-up finishes at Challenge Tour level, during Hansen's rookie 2012 season, earned him fourth place in the season-ending rankings and a further promotion to the European Tour. In 2013, Hansen managed to finish in a tie for third at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, where he briefly led late in the final round despite carding a quadruple-bogey nine at his second hole.[2]

In 2019, Hansen finished second at the Amundi Open de France, one stroke behind Nicolas Colsaerts.

Hansen's first victory on the European Tour came in November 2020, where he shot a final round 67 to win the Joburg Open.[3] He won the Aviv Dubai Championship in November 2021 to claim his second victory on the European Tour.[4]
