Victorian Bryden Macpherson makes his return to the PGA TOUR Series-China season this week as one of nine Australians contesting the Huangshan Championship in the mountainous Anhui region.
Macpherson missed last week’s Suzhou Open and failed to finish in his most recent PTSC event, withdrawing from the Nantong Championship following a third round 81.
Since then he has made two cuts on the China Tour and failed to qualify for the weekend at last week’s KEB Hana Bank Invitational in Korea, his goal now to rediscover the early season form that saw him register two top-20 finishes in his first three starts to sit 55th on the moneylist.
The other Australians in the field this week are James Marchesani, Tim Stewart, Christoper Wood, Aaron Wilkin, Kevin Yuan, Charlie Dann, James Grierson, Hayden Webb and New Zealand’s Campbell Rawson.
