Only a couple of weeks back, Aaron Baddeley missed out on his full US PGA Tour card finishing outside the Top 25 in the Web.com Tour playoffs. Starting in 22nd spot before the final event he stumbled and failed to make the cut – finally settling in 33rd position. The veteran Aussie was on the ropes.
However he got a start in the first week of the new Tour season courtesy of conditional status and he immediately made his mark, finishing just one shot off a playoff, ending in T4 and collecting US$240,280. It’s a great start to the 2018/19 season for Badds.com.
While many big names are having a break in the early part of the new season (including Jason Day, Marc Leishman and Adam Scott), Cam Davis was back into it, continuing his great form in his official start on the PGA Tour as a full member, finishing in T17.
The Champions Tour begins in mid-October while the Web.com starts again in mid Jan.
In China the show rolled on, with Max McCardle (T16) the best placed Australian. It was McCardle’s sixth consecutive cut and his fine form sees him 15th in the OOM.
And in Mexico on the PGA Latinoamerica Tour, Harrison Endycott finished T4, a third consecutive Top 5 finish for the promising Aussie prospect.
