The first three of the venues begin their event tonight followed by the remaining three beginning tomorrow (November 14th). At the Plantation Preserve Golf Club in Plantation in Florida Aron Price and Won Joon Lee will tee it up. In McKinney near Dallas in Texas, the largest contingent of Aussies will take their chances. James Nitties, Daniel Nisbet, Nathan Green, Matt Jones, Josh Geary, Stuart Deane, Steve Bowditch, Michael Sim and David McKenzie are in the field.
