A red-hot Australian team will tackle the Spirit International in Texas next month. The tournament is a 54-hole best ball competition with five events running simultaneously. It features teams of four from 20 countries and is run biennially in years that the World Amateur Championship is not held.

“On the men’s side, we all marvelled at the PGA Tour debut of Jack Trent in Las Vegas, and we’ve been impressed by the form of Lachie Barker at Iowa State since he transitioned there from South Australia’s high performance program [and Glenelg Golf Club].

“This is a great test for all of them against an international calibre field and on an elite golf course, but we’re confident that we’ve picked a really competitive team.”

The team will be supported on the ground by Emma De Groot and Adrian Wickstein, a Glenelg Golf Club and Golf SA high performance coach.
