Stieger and McCarthy turn Pro
Wednesday, 10 October 2012
The WA swing usually sees a number of top amateurs take the plunge into Professional ranks, and this year is no different.
Top amateurs New South Welshman Matt Stieger and Tasmanian Ryan McCarthy will both make their much anticipated Pro debuts at this week's WA Goldfields PGA Championship.
In making his pro debut, Stieger will be literally just off a plane fresh from representing his country at the Eisenhower Trophy in Turkey, where he placed just outside the top 30 on the individual leaderboard after a final day 68.
Stieger arrived in Kalgoorlie last night, and will be out early to get his first look of the desert course.
Other rookie Pro McCarthy, at one stage Australia’s highest ranked amateur, says he is still getting his game back on track after a surfing accident resulted in the then 21-year-old dislocating his left shoulder.
The now 23-year-old has been working with coaches Nick White and Gary Barter and is expected to perform well in his first Professional outing this week.
