Aussies On Tour: June 22
by Golf Australia
All eyes were on the two biggest men's tours in the US and while it was another tough week for the Aussies on the PGA Tour, Matt Jones carried the can once again to make the weekend's action at Hilton Head.
Brett Coletta stormed to the opening round lead on the Korn Ferry Tour with a sensational 63, the Victorian young gun eventually climbing to -20 and a share of 14th in a brilliant week.
Curtis Luck finished just one shot further back in a welcome return to form, but it's Coletta who seals #AussieOfTheWeek honours for this week!
And while none of our Aussie women took part, some of the game's biggest names returned to the action on the Korean LPGA Tour over the weekend at the Korean Women's Open.
Honorary Aussie So Yeon Ryu secured her first win anywhere in the world since 2018 before donating her winner's cheque - of more than $US200,000 - to COVID-19 relief in an incredible gesture. In February, Ryu donated a large portion of her ISPS Handa Vic Open runner-up cheque to bushfire relief.
