Aussies on Tour: Ormsby's Asian assault ends
by Dane Heverin
South Australian Wade Ormbsy’s hopes of winning the Asian Tour’s Order of Merit for the 2020/21/22 season have been dashed following a tie for eighth finish at the Singapore International.
Ormsby slipped to second in the standings after he shot four-over for in the penultimate event of the season to finish eight shots behind winner, and new Order of Merit leader, South Korean Joohyung Kim.
The Tour’s season-ending event will also be held in Singapore this week, but Ormsby will not be taking part.
Instead, he will be teeing it up in the DP World Tour’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and he will be trying to put the disappointment of Singapore behind him.
“Fast start today, didn’t finish it off, it always hurts,” Ormsby said on Instagram.
“We go again next week, eyes forward.”
In Hawaii, Cam Davis was the best of the Australians finishing in a share of 28th.
The Sydneysider needed something special in the final round as he began the day six shots off the lead after three consecutive four-under par rounds, but an even-par round of 70 slid him down the leaderboard.
Marc Leishman finished one shot back from Davis after he put together a consistent week, while Cameron Smith and Matt Jones both missed the cut after producing record-breaking performances at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
Meanwhile, the Korn Ferry Tour is under way for the first time in 2022 with Aaron Baddeley (T16), Harrison Endycott (T23) and Curtis Luck (T75) all completing their opening rounds this morning.
