Manassero to join Donald, Poulter at Jbwere Masters
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.ticketek.com.au.
