Golf Australia names 2015 national squad

Australia has announced its high performance national squad for 2015. The nine-member squad will be provided assistance from Golf Australia to further develop their golfing careers whilst working closely with State High Perfomance programs. Squad players have been categorised by performance criteria.

Golf Australia’s High Performance Director Brad James said that being named to the squad was reward for player dedication.

"The players in this year’s squad have all performed at an elite amateur and professional level," James said.

Cameron Davis (Tier 2) – NSW

Golf Australia will also continue to closely watch the progress of other players in 2015.

"It is important for athletes to understand that Golf Australia is monitoring and assisting the development of players outside the National Squad," James said.
