Aussies On Tour: Aug 19

Aussies On Tour aug 19

There was a series of clutch performances in the US and abroad over the weekend from our touring Aussie pros.

Adam Scott and Marc Leishman locked up top 20 finishes at Medinah and now look ahead to the PGA Tour's final event of the 2019 season this week.

Meanwhile, Curtis Luck, Cam Percy and Jamie Arnold got off to flying starts in the first week of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals as they hunt PGA Tour cards for 2020.

But #AussieOfTheWeek goes to proud Queenslander Andrew Dodt after the 33-year-old broke a four-year winning drought with a clutch victory on the Asian Tour.

The two-time European Tour winner saluted with birdie on the first playoff hole at the new Sarawak Championship in Malaysia in his first start back in a pro event following a five-month break from the game due to a back injury.

So for producing an incredible performance on his return to the world stage, we are proud to anoint Dodt as our latest #AussieOfTheWeek!
