Aussies On Tour: Oct 12

The year's third women's major didn't quite go to plan for the Australians in the field but defending champion Hannah Green went down swinging after a slow start to crack the top 25.

Green opened with a 79 on Thursday but clawed her way back to a share of 23rd on the standings after a gutsy three days. She was one of eight players to start with a 79 or worse, but was the only player to make the weekend.

Cam Smith was one spot further back on the PGA Tour in his first start back since the US Open and just his second event since the season-ending Tour Championship.

Young guns Brett Coletta (T15) and Harrison Endycott (T30) both opened with 65s on the Korn Ferry Tour and continued their strong form on one of the world's most competitive circuits.

But once again, our #AussieOfTheWeek comes from Europe as Scott Hend went one better than his T11 finish in Northern Ireland a fortnight ago.

The Queenslander was bogey free on Sunday on his way to a share of 10th at Wentworth, capping off a brilliant week where he only made one bogey across the first 36 holes.

So for notching his first top 10 anywhere in the world since winning last year's Maybank Championship in Malaysia, we proudly anoint Scott Hend as #AussieOfTheWeek once more!
