This week’s wrap from the International Golf tours carded an average week for the Aussie contingent.
At the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, Aaron Baddeley was the best placed Australian with an even-par 72 in his final round to finish at two under and tied for ninth.
Nick O'Hern and Greg Chalmers (both 4-over) and Adam Scott and Rod Pampling (both 5-over) never got going on the weekend.
Of the other Australians to make the cut, Robert Allenby (8-over) and Geoff Ogilvy and Marc Leishman (both 9-over) struggled.
Hopefully the Australians will have better luck this week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee.
It was 37-year-old Brendan Jones’ fourth top-10 finish, including a win at the season opening Token Homemate Cup, in his first seven events on the Japan Golf Tour.
Jones was equal 10th with Japan’s, Kename Yokoo after a final round 71 to finish at 5-under at the Citibank Cup.
Nick Cullen (35th), Kurt Barnes (43rd) and Paul Sheehan (63rd) were the other Australians in the field.
Meanwhile, on the European tour, Mike Harwood ended the Benahavis Senior Masters in Spain well, finishing his final round at 11-under to tie for fourth.
Other Aussies in the field were; Tim Elliott (15th), Graham Banister (23rd), David Merriman (34th), Rodger Davis (42nd) and Noel Ratcliffe (64th).
Staying in Europe, Brett Rumford was the best placed Aussie with one over the card to be tied 18th at the ISPS Handa Wales Open in the City of Newport.
Other Aussies to make the cut, Matthew Zions finished 4-over, Marcus Fraser 5-over and Scott Hend 19-over.
Scott Strange, Richard Green and Andrew Dodt all missed the cut.
Continuing on to the Nationwide Tour, Steven Bowditch finished tied for 10th with a final round of 70 at the Rex Hospital Open.
Scott Gardiner also looked promising throughout the week, shooting an impressive round of 66 on Thursday.
However, number six on the Nationwide Tour Money List, Cameron Percy finished middle of the field.
This week, the Aussies are on the list to play at the Mexico Open with a chance to win a prizepurse of USD$625,000.
Peter Senior place fifth after the first round of the Principal Charity Classic but ended the tournament with a shocking 76 to finish even par.
The only other Aussie in the field Graham Marsh recorded an impressive hole in one on the second hole during the first round; this was his second ace for the week after he also achieved the feat on the 5th during the pro-am.
Marsh unfortunately withdrew prior to the second round with a back injury.
Looking for better results from the Aussies this week, good luck to them all.
