Aussies On Tour: Aug 3

by Golf Australia

More pro golf around the world can mean only one thing: more Aussies at the tops of leaderboards!

The long awaited return of top flight women's professional golf was a sweet one for Australia's no.1 ranked player, as Minjee Lee made the podium at the LPGA Drive On Championship.

The ageless Rod Pampling notched his third top 10 on the PGA Tour champions with a T4 result, just three back of USA's Jim Furyk.

Next week's first major of the year couldn't come at a better time for Jason Day.

The former World No.1 racked up a third straight top 10 on the PGA Tour, at a stacked World Golf Championships event, no less, on his way to the US PGA Championship in San Francisco.

But #AussieOfTheWeek goes to a rising star who put up a brave fight on Sunday on the Korn Ferry Tour.

Chasing his first pro win, Ryan Ruffels came up just one stroke short in Nebraska, but his brilliant charge to the game's top tour continues and that maiden victory won't be far away!
