Mikko Ilonen hails from Finland and turned professional in 2001. His greatest on-course achievement to date came at the Volvo World Match Play championship last season, where he saw off stiff competition and won the biggest tournament in Finnish golfing history. No Ryder Cup appearance for Team Europe as of yet, but Mikko has enjoyed success elsewhere in recent years with victory at the Irish Open and a T2 finish at the Qatar Masters and continues to wear the latest Hugo Boss golf collection. Mikko has two young children named Eino and Elma and married wife Kati in 2010.
