Ken Brown – born 9 January 1957 – is a Scottish former European Tour golfer, who now works as a golf broadcaster and writer, primarily for the BBC, Golf Channel, and Super Sport.
He started his TV work with Sky Sports, working on their PGA Tour and European Tour coverage in the early 1990s.
He won four times on the European Tour; and, in his best season, in 1978, he finished fourth on the European Tour Order of Merit at the age of 21.
He appeared in the Ryder Cup in 1977, 1979, 1983, 1985, and 1987, and had a 4-9-0 win-loss-tie record, including two wins and two losses in singles matches. Brown was vice-captain under Mark James in the 1999 matches.
After retiring from playing, Brown has spent much of his time as a BBC TV golf commentator and analyst. He also works as part of the commentary team for the international coverage of the European Tour on selected events which are not covered by the BBC.
