What an event this is, always one of the most loved tournaments of the year by all the players and has been a happy hunting ground for the young players on Tour. So this week the Tour Insider is looking to see some of them throw their hand up.
He has really has got his game in order and TI thinks he suits these two courses to a tee, but especially The Hills! Not a huge amount of drivers needed and where they are its wide open.
This boy can play! He is relatively new to the scene but he already recorded his first win on tour last year. TI has to admit it's either diamonds or rocks with this bloke, when he is on it's great to watch but he can throw some big numbers on the card when he is off. TI like his methodical game to match up here but most impressive is his putting.
BRAD KENNEDY What a record this guy has at the NZ Open, he ran second two years ago and fourth four years ago and of course won it in 2011. He recently ran second at the Vic open and made the match play at the World Super 6 Perth. He is clearly playing well and has the runs on the board. TI is expecting him to go deep in this event.
HARRISON ENDYCOTTOne of the young guys out on tour, he hasn’t cracked through yet but has the game to break through. Don't worry he will tell you if you don’t already know! Jokes aside, this kid is going places and with his recent good results, it's all aboard.
AARON PIKEBit of a rough selection here but TI had the chance to watch him hit balls on the range and also play a few holes and he was certainly on song. He has previously had very good results around The Hills and it would be full of confidence after gaining playing rights on the PGA Tour China. TI just hopes the King of Crackle can put the cooking utensils down long enough to play four rounds.
