Aussies On Tour: Aug 31

It was a mad dash back across the Atlantic for many of our Aussie women this week and Katherine Kirk handled the change in scenery best.

A closing 66 helped her to a T7 result, the Queenslander's first top 10 since last year's ISPS Handa Vic Open.

Further north, only Marc Leishman and Cam Smith will progress to the PGA Tour's season-ending Tour Championship after a brutal test at the BMW Championship.

That means the 2019-20 FedEx Cup seasons of Adam Scott and Jason Day come to a close, though there's still plenty of meaningful golf to be played this calendar year.

In Europe, it was another West Australian flying the flag as Min Woo Lee finished T11 in the UK to climb to 24th on the Race To Dubai rankings.

That marks Lee's fifth top 15 finish – including a win – in what has been a brilliant first full European Tour season.

But our latest #AussieOfTheWeek came from central Europe, as rising star Steph Kyriacou cracked the top five on the Ladies European Tour in just her fourth start as a professional.

So to last week's sensational major debut and this week's first big pay cheque, we say congratulations to Steph Kyriacou!
