All eyes on Perth as fast-format golf tees off

Published on : Friday, February 17, 2017

watourism-logoGolfing history is being made in Perth as Lake Karrinyup Country Club hosts a world-first tournament format, beginning today.

 

The State Government, through Tourism WA, is a major sponsor of the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth – a unique stroke-play and match-play hybrid event that is tri-sanctioned by the European Tour, Asian Tour and ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.

 

 

World Number 11 Alex Noren, major winner Louis Oosthuizen, 2016 Turkish Airlines Open Champion Thorbjørn Olesen and reigning US Amateur Champion and local hero Curtis Luck are some of the draw cards in the 156-player field.

 

 

Beginning today, 54 holes of traditional stroke play across the first three days will be followed by an exciting knock-out format for Sunday’s final round, with all match play games to be played over six holes and possibly decided by a shoot-out hole – a purpose-built par-three tee that plays to the original 18th green.

 

 

As well as bringing golf fans to the city to experience the inaugural faster format, ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth is set to showcase Western Australia to a global audience through worldwide television and digital coverage.
