AUDIO: Endycott delays professional call

Eisenhower Trophy winner Harrison Endycott is in no rush to turn professional.

The 20-year-old joined with fellow Sydneysider Cam Davis and Perth’s Curtis Luck last week to win Australia’s fourth World Amateur Team Championship in Mexico.

But the Avondale ace says he will wait another year before he joins the paid ranks.

“We‘ll start looking towards the end of next year,” the world No.12 amateur told Radio 2UE’s Sports Today last night.

“I want another year as an amateur and get a few more opportunities then sit down with the right people and discuss which avenues (to take).

“I‘ve got a few little things I want to work on in my game and I think a year will be perfect timing. I’m going to be a bit patient with that and let it happen next year.”

Luck had been keen to turn professional later this year until he won the recent US Amateur Championship and won entry rights into three of next year’s major championships provided he maintain his current status, which he will.

Davis, who won the individual title run concurrently with the Eisenhower Trophy, won a bonus prize of an invitation to compete in November’s OHL Classic on the US PGA Tour at the same venue, Mayakoba.

The Monash star will join his teammates as part of the Aussie contingent at next month’s Asia Pacific Amateur Championship, but unless he wins and earns a Masters start as an amateur, it’s likely he will make the transition before he returns to Mexico for that potentially lucrative opportunity.
