Ormsby Warming-up For A Third WGC Showing Tackling TPC Sawgrass.

Great to see Australia’s Wade Ormsby making a return to golf at the game’s elite level at this coming week’s first World Golf Championships (WGC) event of the New Year.

The World Golf Championship at The Concession Golf Club, in Florida, and replacing the WGC – Mexico Championship due to Covid-19 concerns, will be played from February 25 to 28 at Bradenton to the south of Tampa, and with course getting its name from the historic putting concession that Jack Nicklaus afforded Tony Jacklin that halved the 1969 Ryder Cup encounter at Royal Birkdale.

Ormsby, 40, earned his place in the $US 10.5m field on the back of finishing  first in last year’s Asian Tour Order of Merit.

Wade Ormsby, and the reigning Hong Kong Open champion, returning to WGC competition at this coming week’s WGC at the Concession.

Ormsby’s rise to the top of the Asian Tour rankings was helped by his stunning four stroke 2019 Hong Kong Open victory over reigning Open Champion Shane Lowry.

The Adelaide-born golfer has played three events this new season and the trio on the European Tour Middle East swing, and with a best finish of T12th in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

Since the last fortnight’s Saudi International, Ormsby has been based in Florida and posting social media news he’s been playing TPC Sawgrass, and venue each year for the Players Championship, with fellow Aussies Cameron Smith, Aaron Price and Scott Hend.

And joining Ormsby will be TPC Sawgrass playing partner Cameron Smith along with fellow Aussies Adam Scott, Jason Day, Brad Kennedy, Min Woo Lee and Marc Leishman.
