Quiet week for Aussies on Tour

Jul 2, 2019

It has been a very quiet week on the PGA Tour. The main Tour played the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detriot, and it was less than spectacular for the Australians. A weakened field teed up and big names like Day, Leishman, Scott took the week off, however five compatriots did play and all missed the Cut (Davis, Luck Jones, Pampling and Smith).
For the Aussies, FedEx Cup standings changed little. Leishman is the best placed sitting 13th. Next best is Scott (16th), Day (34), with Smith (83) and Baddeley (88) the others inside the Top 100. The main dance moves to Minnesota this week.
On the Champions Tour, Peter Fowler was our sole representative in the US Senior Open and he finished well back in T43.
The only other men’s Tour to play was the Korn Ferry (renamed web.com). Brett Coletta and Brett Drewitt both missed the weekend action.
On the LPGA Tour, last week’s PGA Major Champion Australian Hannah Green took the week off, maybe still celebrating her historic win (Read all about it here). It was business as usual for most however and Minjee Lee and Katherine Kirk were our best placed players, sharing T18. They shot identical rounds of 68-67-66 to finish -12, six shots behind Sung Hyan Park on -18 (66-63-66).
