CONTACT +64 9 917 1588 OR SELECTED PRO SHOPS AND STOCKISTS WWW.ONCOREGOLFOCEANIA.COM DAY NOW THE FACE OF MYGOLF WORLD No.1 Jason Day has put his name to Australia’s national junior golf program, MyGolf, with the 2015 US PGA Championship winner taking on the role as its official ambassador. The nine-time US PGA Tour winner will be the face of MyGolf, boosting the growth of junior golf around Australia. “I’m honoured to be the ambassador for the MyGolf program. Kids are the future of our sport and if my involvement can assist to bring more juniors into our game then I’m stoked to be involved,” Day said. “It’s great to see Golf Australia and the PGA working together and investing in an initiative that provides a really clear entry point for junior golfers across Australia; I can’t wait to meet some of our MyGolfers when I’m back home.” MORE> ______________________________________ KO WINS SECOND MAJOR WORLD No.1 Lydia Ko conducted a putting clinic en route to claiming her second major championship at the LPGA’s ANA Inspiration in California. The 18-year-old, who won her first major at the Evian Masters last September, opened her 2016 major campaign in style with a dramatic one- stroke victory over Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn. Ko carded a final round three under 69 to finish at 12 under and when she reflects on her victory she will note it was won on the greens of the Mission Hills Country Club course. MORE> ______________________________________ ENDYCOTT EARNS PROMOTION In form NSW golfer Harrison Endycott has been promoted to the Golf Australia national squad. The 19-year-old, from Avondale Golf Club, was elevated to the squad after winning last week’s South Australian Classic at Royal Adelaide, which was his fourth big victory in just two months. Endycott’s performances have been consistently good during the past 18 months but his start to 2016 has been spectacular. After losing his quarter-final of the Australian Amateur to eventual champion Connor Syme, Endycott won the Lake Macquarie Amateur the following week. A fortnight later, he successfully defended the Avondale Cup title at his home club, then returned to Victoria and won the national rankings event and time-honoured Riversdale Cup before his victory in Adelaide propelled him to No.42 in the world amateur rankings.
