Last year it was the little known Australian Cameron Davis who took home the top spot at just 22 years of age. The youngster had only turned professional a mere 13 months prior to his historic win on one of the world’s biggest sporting stages!

In 2018, The Lakes Golf Club of Sydney’s south, will play host to the coveted golf event. To keep with tradition, the event is generally held on the eastern coast of Australia.
