NOTES:The European Tour travels to Australia this week for the ISPS Handa
Perth International at Lake Karrinyup Country Club in Perth, Western
Australia. Three of the top 32 players in the world are in the field --
Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (22), Australian Charl Schwartzel (24) and American
Jason Dufner (32).
Dufner, the 2013 PGA Championship winner, is playing for the first time since
withdrawing from the PGA Championship in August due to a neck injury.
Dubuisson lost in the quarterfinals last week at the Volvo World Match Play
Championship to eventual champion Mikko Ilonen. Dubuisson was also a member of
the victorious European Ryder Cup team last month, where he was 2-0-1.
This tournament is co-sanctioned by the European Tour and PGA Tour of
Australasia. Lake Karrinyup Country Club also hosted the 2002 and 2003 Johnnie
Walker Classic. Retief Goosen captured the title in 2002, while Ernie Els won
in 2003. Els established the European Tour record for lowest winning 72-hole
total in relation to par of 259 (-29) in 2003.
This tournament is the seventh different European Tour event to be played in
Australia. The other six were the Heineken Classic (1996-2005), Johnnie
Walker Classic (1997, 2002-03, 06, 09), Greg Norman Holden International
(2000-01), WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship (2001), ANZ Championship
(2002-04) and Australian Masters (2007-09).
Last year, Jin Jeong parred the first playoff to defeat Ross Fisher and claim
his first European Tour title. Jeong and Fisher ended at 10-under-par 278.
Jeong started the week outside of the top 1,000 in the official world golf
In 2012, Bo Van Pelt carded rounds of 70-67-67-68 to earn a 2-stroke win over
Jason Dufner at the inaugural event. Van Pelt, who won for the first time on
the European Tour, finished at 16-under-par 272.
The European Tour heads to China next week for the BMW Masters at Lake
Malaren Golf Club in Shanghai, where Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano captured the
