High Profile Players Tee Up for Perth International

US star Dustin Johnson is the latest high profile player to join the field for next month’s Perth International at Lake Karrinyup Country Club.

Johnson has already secured seven PGA TOUR wins since earning his card in 2008, including the 2013 Tournament of Champions in January, which he won by four strokes. The laid back 29-year-old’s strong season has continued and in July he tied for 2nd in the Canadian Open. He has also qualified for this week’s season ending TOUR Championship.

“I love playing in Australia and the timing of the Perth International worked perfectly for my fall schedule.” Johnson said. “I have heard great things about the city and the lifestyle there, so I am really looking forward to playing in Western Australia for the first time.”

He will join fellow American and defending champion Bo Van Pelt, 2013 Presidents Cup International team member and 2012 European Tour four-event winner Branden Grace from South Africa, Brett Rumford – winner of back to back events on the European Tour this season, 12-time European Tour event winner and 2013 Irish Open champion Paul Casey from England, Australia’s leading amateur golfer – local hero Brady Watt and three-time European Tour winner Australian Richard Green.

The Perth International is Australia’s richest Tour event and Lake Karrinyup Country Club is widely acknowledged as Western Australia’s premier private golf club, regularly rated as one of the top ten golf courses in Australia.
