Golf: Australian PGA Championship preview

The hectic schedule continues, as no sooner has the DP World Tour Championship concluded, players will be embarking on the Royal Queensland Golf Club for the Australian PGA Championship this week.

Australia’s Min Woo Lee is just one of the stars to make the trip from Dubai to Brisbane for this highly-anticipated competition.

Here’s a look at some of the contenders to claim the big prize in Queensland.

Cameron Smith - 5.00

As the reigning champion going into this week’s tournament, it’s little surprise to see Cameron Smith as the early favourite heading into the event.

After moving to LIV Golf, Smith has a rare chance to earn some world ranking points, while also having the opportunity to add another title to his name before a crack at the four majors next year.

With a competitive field taking part in this competition, Smith will have a battle on his hands to retain the title.

Min Woo Lee - 7.50

After playing in Dubai last week, Min Woo Lee is back on home soil and is looking forward to taking part in this Australian PGA Championship.

The 25-year-old from Perth has enjoyed this competition in recent years, finishing in the top five in both of the last two tournaments.

A rising star on the scene who will have plenty of home support, Lee is excited to get going at the Royal Queensland Golf Club.

"It is an awesome event, I love playing in front of an Australian crowd,” he said. “Being in Australia is what you want at the end of the year.

"I really enjoy being in Australia and having that support. The last couple of years have been awesome.”

Robert MacIntyre - 26.00

One player heading out to Australia looking to beat the home favourites to the title is Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre.

The 27-year-old has a mission to regain his place in the top 50 in the world rankings to ensure he has a guaranteed spot at all four majors in 2024.

Currently sat at 56th in the standings, a strong week in Brisbane would give his ranking spot a significant boost.

The man from Oban, who has relatives in Australia, is another player who can’t wait to get going this week and hopes a strong performance can see him kick on to potentially greater things in the new year.

“I’ve always loved Australia and have family there, so I’m really looking forward to the fortnight playing in Brisbane and Sydney,” MacIntyre said.

“The Australian PGA and Australian Open are two tournaments with great history and I’d love to be up there in both.

“There’s been some great examples in the past of players winning in Australia and then going on to big things in the following year.”

With the likes of Adam Scott, Adrian Meronk and Marc Leishman also featuring in this week’s competition, it will be intriguing to see how this year’s Australian PGA Championship plays out.
