Manassero to join Don­ald, Poul­ter at Jb­were Masters

Inside Golf - - PGA -

IMG has an­nounced that Ital­ian teenage sen­sa­tion Mat­teo Manassero would make his first ap­pear­ance in Aus­tralia to join World # 1 Luke Don­ald, World #17 Ian Poul­ter and de­fend­ing Cham­pion Stu­art Ap­pleby at the JB­Were Masters, which will be staged at The Vic­to­ria Golf Club from 15-18 De­cem­ber.

Manassero is cur­rently ranked #30 in the World and has al­ready estab­lished him­self as an in­ter­na­tional star, break­ing records at ev­ery turn. He be­came the youngest win­ner in Euro­pean Tour his­tory when he cap­tured the Castello Masters in Oc­to­ber 2010 at 17 years and 188 days. He claimed his sec­ond Euro­pean Tour win at the 2011 Malaysian Open shortly be­fore his 18th birth­day on 19th April.

On his first visit to Aus­tralia, Manassero com­mented: “ I have heard many great things about the Mel­bourne sand­belt and I am re­ally ex­cited about the op­por­tu­nity to play in Aus­tralia. One of the great things golf af­fords me is the op­por­tu­nity to travel to dif­fer­ent coun­tries and ex­pe­ri­ence the dif­fer­ent cul­tures and con­di­tions.”

Tick­ets are avail­able for all four tour­na­ment days plus prac­tice and Pro-Am day. Call Tick­etek on 132 849, www.tick­
