Golf Australia - - GOLF IS GOOD -

MIN WOO LEE (WA) AAC AP­PEAR­ANCES: 2017 (T3). WORLD AMA­TEUR GOLF RANK­ING*: 13. Played in the fi­nal group at Royal Welling­ton last year and fin­ished T3. He will likely be the high­est-ranked player in the field and has plenty of big event ex­pe­ri­ence.

DAVID MICHELUZZI (VIC) AAC AP­PEAR­ANCES: NIL. WAGR*: 16. Micheluzzi (pic­tured above) has en­joyed a strong 12 months on the ama­teur scene. Prob­a­bly didn’t play as well as he would’ve ex­pected at the Fiji In­ter­na­tional and the US Ama­teur – but the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing with Ernie Els for two rounds in Fiji will only ben­e­fit him go­ing for­ward.

ZACH MUR­RAY (VIC) AAC AP­PEAR­ANCES: NIL. WAGR*: 29. Mak­ing his first ap­pear­ance at this event but has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence with crowds from his four Aus­tralian Opens. Was the best of the Aussies at the US Ama­teur in Au­gust, pro­gress­ing to the Round of 16 in Match Play.

DY­LAN PERRY (NSW) AAC AP­PEAR­ANCES: 2017 (T15). WAGR*: 31. Fin­ished T15 in Welling­ton last year and ap­peared un­flus­tered by the crowds and his me­dia com­mit­ments. He is hun­gry for suc­cess in what will be his fi­nal event as an ama­teur.

SHAE WOOLS-COBB (QLD) AAC AP­PEAR­ANCES: 2017 (T6). WAGR*: 41. Wools-Cobb (pic­tured be­low) played scin­til­lat­ing golf in the open­ing round last year to shoot the low round of the tour­na­ment (eight-un­der 63) and earn a four-stroke lead. Faded to even­tu­ally share sixth place but ar­rives in Sin­ga­pore with more ex­pe­ri­ence.

BLAKE WINDRED (NSW) AAC AP­PEAR­ANCES: NIL. WAGR*: 55. The Novo­cas­trian has pro­duced solid re­sults on home soil and is gain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in­ter­na­tion­ally. He fin­ished T7 at the Euro­pean Ama­teur Cham­pi­onship and was run­ner-up at the Porter Cup in the US.
