Lake Karrinyup Country Club (LKCC) was a buzz with local and international talent this morning as the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Pro Am got underway.
The ISPS Handa World Super 6 tournament officially commences tomorrow with locals Jason Scrivener, Matt Jager and Min Woo Lee competing against the likes of World Number 70 Thomas Pieters, Lucas Herbert and Victorian Open Champion David Law. 54 holes of traditional stroke play will take place over the first three days, followed by a six hole knockout match play format on the fourth and final day.
Local Club Super 6 winners, Lyn Bennett (Gosnells), Maddie Baxter (LKCC), Darryl White (Kwinana) and Nick Curnow (LKCC) teamed up for today’s Pro Am with Gavin Green and Jason Norris with twenty six groups of sponsors and official guests.
Windswept from the recent Victoria Open at Barwon Heads, Jason Scrivener returned to WA to partner with local sports identities Matthew Pavlich and John Peers, both proving to be just as handy on the golf course as they are with a footy or tennis racquet. Players were supported by our competition-winning “Caddy Kids”. Aspiring young golfers Ollie, Ben and Bailey were fortunate enough to gain some real insight into the role of a caddy from Scrivener’s wing man Rance De Gruesset.
Tickets can be purchased here for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Tournament 14-17th February. Australians, Daniel Fox and Simon Hawkes commence tomorrow’s competition at 6.40am, followed by fellow Aussies 2017 WA Open Winner Stephen Leaney and Nick O’Hern.
