The inaugural ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth will be played at Lake Karrinyup Country Club next month and one player excited to head Down Under is World Number 9 Alex Noren.
Swedish sensation, Noren is one of the most in form players in the world. Having experienced a meteoric launch up the Official World Golf Rankings in 2016, he is now inside the top-10 courtesy of four victories on the European Tour this year which also saw him finish 3rdon the 2016 Race to Dubai.
"This will be my first time to Western Australia and I am excited to play Lake Karrinyup Country Club and see the sights. I have heard great things from my fellow European Tour players," said Noren.
"Everyone on the European Tour has been talking about the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth, the format is very interesting and I look forward to playing in the inaugural tournament."
Noren forced the world to stand up and take notice of him in 2016, his winning ways making him one of the hottest players in golf.
"Alex's accession into the top-10 is a huge credit to his ability and dedication. Arguably one of the most successful golfers this year makes him a huge coup for the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth," said Stephen Ayles, Chief Commercial Officer of the PGA of Australia.
"While 2016 has been a career year for Alex, I think 2017 could be even bigger, perhaps starting with a victory in Perth."
Noren will be joined in the field by World Number 8 Patrick Reed and local sensation Curtis Luck.
The ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth will be played at Lake Karrinyup Country Club from 16-19 February and will form part of both the 2017 European Tour Race to Dubai and the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit.
