Biography

Born in The Hague, Netherlands, Niels Feijen was an avid athlete at a young age, discovered pool at 16. Four years later, he flew to the United States to hone his game among the American stars he’d studied on so many videos. A ferocious competitor and relentlessly hard worker, Feijen quickly began finishing in the top 10 in international tournaments. His first major breakthrough came in 2008, when he won the World Straight Pool Championship. After finishing third in the World 10-Ball Championship that year, and runner-up twice in the World 8-Ball Championship (2010, 2011), Feijen finally captured his second world title at the World 9-Ball Championship in 2014. He won the World Pool Masters in 2013, and repeated as champion in 2018. His biggest years were 2013 and 2014, a two-year stretch in which he added back-to-back World Cup of Pool runner-up finishes, back-to-back runner-up finishes in the Derby City 10-Ball Challenge and a pair of Mosconi Cup wins and MVP honors to his Masters and World 9-Ball crowns. He has appeared in Mosconi Cups (MVP four times) and is two-time European 9-Ball Champion and seven-time European Straight Pool Champion.
