Having already won the US Amateur Championship, netting himself a Masters berth in the process, he led Coletta [above} on the final day, with his good mate chasing a victory that would also have earned him his own ticket to Augusta. Instead, Luck didn’t hesitate to step on Coletta’s throat, putting another victory onto his growing resume. James says it’s that killer instinct that has thus far set Luck apart, and holds him in good stead for when he eventually transitions into the professional ranks. “If Tiger Woods or Greg Norman or Karrie Webb were in that situation, they would have done the exact same,” James says. “ What he did was just do what he naturally does. You can’t take anything away from him at all.” As for Colleta, his Queensland Open victory was a sweet consolation, and has him weighing up how long he waits before launching his professional career. “ We had dinner with Brett last night and we discussed, ‘should I turn pro, should I not turn pro?’” James says. “It was basically, ‘You know mate, you could turn pro and have an incredibly successful career’. The idea is just to try and increase the percentages of having a successful career.” “We want to find talent at that young age and then put the right coaching structures and platform around them so that their chances of being successful only increases.” E GOLF AUSTRALIA HIGH PERFORMANCE DIRECTOR BRAD JAMES ON.... BRETT COLETTA Brett’s obviously an incredible talent. He’s got a great team around him at the VIS and Golf Victoria. He’s a very, very dedicated young man. He’s been in the program for a good four years now and his results haven’t really shown how good he is as a player. His world ranking wasn’t very high, his results were OK, but behind the scenes you’ve got a young man who’s got structure, very hard worker...it was just a matter of time before some good results actually showed the player that he is. CAMERON DAVIS He’s had a really good summer. He did well over in Europe, obviously the team won the World Amateur, and he’s another one that’s had a great team around him. CURTIS LUCK Curtis Luck is an incredible talent. He’s a guy that’s an incredible competitor, knows how to put a score on the board. What he’s done this year, I can’t remember anyone in the history of amateur golf to have had such a dominating year.
