Brendan Steele

AGE: 35
FROM: California, USA 
TOUR: PGA Tour 
WORLD RANKING: 84 
CAREER EARNINGS (US): $13,728,298
2018 FORM: Wins – 1; Top-10s – 3

KEY STAT: 417 yards. That’s how far this “veteran” pumped a drive at the 2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Who said the old blokes can’t keep up? He’ll need to showcase all that power this week.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The two-time Safeway Open champion (back-to-back times no less, winning the title in 2016 and 2017) is a journeyman of the PGA Tour who arrives in Sydney under the radar compared to his American compatriots. With three PGA Tour titles to his name, and a TV acting debut on an episode of “Bones” in 2015, expect Steele to handle the pressure of winning one of the most prized international trophies with aplomb.
