2012 National Squad benchmarks unveiled

Golf Australia has announced the 2012 Performance Benchmarks for automatic selection into the National Squad. Players also have the ability to be selected at any time into the program by the selection panel if they feel the player has the potential to be a world class player at the elite amateur and professional levels. The benchmarks have been updated for 2012 and will be among the key criteria used to select the 2012 National Squad. The squad will be announced during the week of The Presidents Cup in Melbourne. Golf Australia High Performance Director Brad James said the benchmarks would ensure Australian players were in line with their international counterparts. We can t overstate how competitive the international environment is for our emerging elite players. These benchmarks will help to ensure our players are aware of the level of performance the Golf Australia National Program is trying to reach, as we work to provide the best possible resources to help our players reach their potential.
