After a short stay at the University of Minnesota, Antti returned to Europe with the ambition of turning professional. Antti had his first victory in the Nordic League in 2005 at the Sonera Open. Having held off Rory McIlroy in a playoff to win the Irish Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship, and, winning the Gant Open in the Nordic league, Antti turned pro in 2006 and signaled his intent as one of Finland’s hottest prospects.
2008 was a great season for Antti as he was victorious on two occasions on the Challenge Tour. His victories came at the Abierto Visa de la Republica in Buenos Aires and the ECCO Tour Championship in Denmark.
In 2016, Antti played on the European Challenge Tour as he has done for the past few seasons. He ended the season in 142nd on the Road to Oman Rankings after finishes of T21 at First Stage of Q-School and T33 at the Volopa Irish Challenge. He will continue to play on the Challenge Tour for the 2017 season, which he hopes will be a big year for him.
