FROM: Perth, Western Australia
AT THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN:
Debuts in 2016
WORLD RANKING: 2
HIS STORY: Curtis Luck created world headlines in August when
he became the first Australian to win the US Amateur since Nick Flanagan in 2003. But it wasn’t just the victory that garnered attention – it was because the Perth native demolished his opponent 6 & 4 after being all-square at the 18-hole point. The 20-year-old, whose win secured him entry to the 2017 Masters, US Open and Open Championship, will join the likes of world No.1 Jason Day and past champions Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott
in the field at Royal Sydney from November 17-20. Though it will be Luck’s Australian Open debut, he’ll arrive at Royal Sydney full of confidence after helping the Australian team to an emphatic Eisenhower Trophy victory in September.
