Aussies On Tour: Oct 5

by Golf Australia

AOT Oct 5 lucas herbert_image

There was excitement all over the globe this weekend, with Australians cracking the top 10 on all five tours.

An outrageous Saturday 63 thrust Sydney's Cam Davis into the final group on Sunday at a PGA Tour event for the first time and while the 2017 Australian Open champion couldn't reel in Sergio Garcia, Davis notched his third top 10 on the PGA Tour for 2020.

Katherine Kirk matched that feat on the LPGA Tour, but the consistent Queenslander recorded her third top 10 in consecutive weeks.

Tied-seventh finishes in Arkansas and at the year's second major, the ANA Inspiration, were followed with a T10 result in New Jersey as Kirk hits this week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship in top form.

Young gun Brett Coletta stormed out of the blocks with a pair of opening 66s to eventually crack the podium on the Korn Ferry Tour, the Victorian ending a run of five straight missed cuts in outstanding fashion.

Only Robyn Choi started faster than Coletta, the fellow rising star opening with a 9-under 63 on the women's secondary circuit in the US to rocket to the first round lead.

The 22-year-old ground out a T5 finish to compliment a four-event stretch coming in to this week where she's finished T11, T9, runner-up and T25.

There's hardly been a tighter race for #AussieOfTheWeek but we could look no further than the brilliant effort of Lucas Herbert in brutal conditions on the European Tour.

The 2020 Dubai Desert Classic champion bounced back from a 79 on Saturday in some of the toughest weather of the year to rattle off a Sunday 65 - with six birdies in his first 10 holes - to hit the front on Sunday before settling for a share of fourth.

So for backing up last week's T7 and notching his fourth top 10 of the year, congratulations to Lucas Herbert!
