Golf: Aussie chances this week in Vegas and Madrid

With the Shriners Children's Open and Open de Espana taking place this week, here’s a look at Australian hopes for both tournaments.

Davis hoping to be in the mix in Vegas

Cameron Davis will have hopes of competing at the business end of the Shriners Children’s Open, as the PGA Tour’s Fall Series heads to Las Vegas.

It’s TPC Summerlin that will be hosting the week’s action, with Davis as the 23.00 third favourite going into the competition behind favourite Tom Kim at 12.00 and Ludvig Adberg at 15.00.  

Kim came out on top in this tournament in 2023, in a year that Australian Jason Day finished tied for eighth spot.

Davis has managed one PGA Tour title in his career to date, winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic with a play-off victory against Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann in 2021.

After finishing tied for fourth at the PGA Championship earlier this year, Davis has impressed at times in 2023 and will be eyeing a second tour win in  Vegas this week.

Fellow Australian Lucas Herbert will be hoping to raise a few eyebrows with his performance in Nevada with the 27-year-old at 46.00 to win the event at Summerlin.   

Herbert also has one PGA Tour title to his name so far, after claiming the 2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship, and will be looking to be in the mix come the weekend.

He finished tied for 20th in the Shriners Children's Open last year and will have eyes on higher up the leaderboard this week.

Scrivener flying the flag in Spain

Jason Scrivener will be flying the flag for Australia as the only representative from Down Under to be featuring at the Open de Espana this week.

Enjoying life on the European Tour, Scrivener’s last victory came at the NSW Open on the PGA Tour of Australasia in 2017.

Beating fellow Aussie Lucas Herbert that day, Scrivener managed to win the tournament that year by six strokes.

Scrivener finished tied 23rd in the PGA Championship in 2021 but has failed to really kick on since then at any of the major tournaments.

The 34-year-old, who grew up in Perth, will be hoping to make the weekend and see if he can challenge some of the bigger names that will be heading to the Spanish capital for this event at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid.

Scrivener is available at 111.00 to cause a shock and claim the Open de Espana title, with home favourite Jon Rahm at 3.00 to finish top of the leaderboard.  

England’s Justin Rose is the second favourite at 15.00 to take the title in Madrid, with Yannik Paul third favourite at 26.00.
