Aussies On Tour: Sep 7
by Golf Australia
It was a sensational week for our Australians on the US's secondary women's tour, the Symetra Tour, with Queenslander Robyn Choi coming within a whisker of a maiden pro win.
Choi finished just one back of winner Kim Kaufman, while Pepperdine University graduate Hira Naveed cracked the top 10 in an equally strong performance by the West Australian.
But for the second time in three weeks, Australia gets to celebrate one of our own claiming their first Korn Ferry Tour title.
New South Welshman Brett Drewitt earned his second pro win in Illinois, having debuted on the US's development circuit way back in 2015.
But 116 starts later, the 29-year-old rattled off four birdies in seven holes in the middle of his final round to leap into the lead and he never looked back, sealing the win with a clutch par at the last.
So to another Australian joining our already incredible honour roll of 2020 champions, here's to #AussieOfTheWeek Brett Drewitt!
