Our Aussies in the field struggled at the penultimate PGA Tour stop for 2020, with only Marc Leishman and Cam Smith featuring in next week’s 24-man teams event in Florida.

Newly-anointed Ladies European Tour Rookie of the Year Steph Kyriacou returned home to Australia and missed the season-ending event in Spain, but our leading women in the US did us proud.

Five of our LPGA regulars cracked the top 25 in Texas with Metropolitan GC’s Su Oh leading the way.

The Victorian notched her best result on the women’s top circuit since February thanks to four birdies in her final 12 holes.

Oh is one of six Australians in the field for this week’s US Women’s Open alongside Minjee Lee, Hannah Green, Sarah Jane Smith, Katherine Kirk and amateur Gabi Ruffels.

So for finding form at the perfect time, we congratulate our newest #AussieOfTheWeek Su Oh!
