Ronnie is an English snooker player best known as one of the most talented and awarded athletes in the sport.
After turning professional in 1992, Ronnie won his first 38 matches he quickly ascended to the pinnacle of the sport and he became the youngest player to win the UK Championship in 1993, and in 1995 saw him claim his first masters title. Nicknamed the Rocket for his rapid playing style, he dazzled onlookers at the 1997 World Championship by clearing the table in five minutes and 20 seconds for the fastest recorded maximum in history.
Ronnie won the World Championship for the first time in 2001, and by early 2009 he had added two more World titles, three more UK victories and four more Masters wins. A pronounced slump seemingly left him on the downside of his career, but he rebounded to win back-to-back World titles in 2012 and 2013. He notched another Masters victory in 2014, a year in which he also established a record with his 12th recorded maximum en route to winning the Welsh Open.
