World Super 6 starts this Thursday

The ISPS Handa World Super 6 arrives in Perth this week, from 14 – 17 February.

The time has come for the ISPS Handa World Super 6 to tee off in Perth. The four-day event takes place from Thursday 14 – Sunday 17 February at Lake Karrinyup Country Club.

There will be a combined 54 holes of stroke play across the opening three days. The fourth and final round sees a six-hole knockout format to decide a winner.

After previously announcing World Cup of Golf 2018 Winner Thomas Pieters as a starter, alongside Englishman Tom Lewis, Australian Lucas Herbert, New Zealander Ryan Fox, Spaniard Jorge Campillo and Japan’s Yusaku Miyazato, several of the best players from the Asian Tour have also been confirmed to accompany them.

South Africa’s Justin Harding will be competing, as well as Thailand’s Jazz Janewattanond. Jannewattanond will take inspiration from his fellow countryman Kiradech Aphibarnat’s win here last year, having now broken into the world Top-50. He will be joined by Thai compatriot Poom Saksansin, as well as American Kurt Kitayama.

Aussie Min Woo Lee, hailing from Perth, will back up last year’s appearance in his first professional start back on home soil, in his home town. Speaking about the World Super 6, Lee told of his excitement, “I had a really good tournament at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth last year as an amateur, so I am thrilled to have the chance now to play it as a professional.

“It’s an awesome event and is so much fun to play. There aren’t many opportunities to play match play as a pro, so to change it up a bit and have some fun battling it out head-to-head is great.”

Lee is joined by fellow Australian David Law, as well as Herbert.

Tickets to all four days of the event can be found at Ticketmaster.com.au. Single or four-day passes are available for purchase, as well as several hospitality options. Find more detail on these options here.
