AGE: 40
FROM: Florida, USA
TOUR: PGA Tour 
WORLD RANKING: 33
CAREER EARNINGS (US): $45,019,237
2018 FORM: Wins – 1; Top-10s – 4

KEY STAT: Ranks fourth on the PGA Tour in Sand Save Percentage with 61.97%, which should give him confidence around a course built on sandy wasteland.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The wily veteran returns to Australia on a two-part mission this year – taking aim at the Stonehaven Cup at the same venue where he missed the cut in 2011 before representing Team USA in his third World Cup of Golf. With a recent win on the PGA Tour in Mexico, Kuchar will be bringing his hot form down under. Always a crowd favourite who will undoubtedly draw chants of “Kuuuuuuch” around The Lakes this week.
