The PGA of Australia is pleased to announce its team for the inaugural Women & # 39; s PGA Cup with the well-known Australian PGA Professional Lisa Jean to capture the team in the first-of-its-kind competition.

The international tournament, formed by the PGA of America, will be a 54-hole blast event with the lowest scores of each team being counted after each round, with the winning country being the team with the lowest total of 54 holes.

The Australian team will include the best female PGA Professionals from Australia, with Captain Lisa Jean (VIC), alongside Gillian Rae (NSW), Bronte Colbert (WA), Jade Fisher (QLD) and Sienna Voglis (VIC) at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas in October.

"We have put together a great team for the Women & # 39; s PGA Cup and I am honored to lead them as captain," said Lisa Jean.

"We are all very excited to be part of a tournament that gives us the opportunity to show what we do on the world stage and to show other countries the level of female PGA professionals in Australia.

"We all have strengths in different areas of the game, but I think that's what will make us such strong competitors."

All five women will play an important role in the team that Australia chooses Lisa Jean to participate as a captain in the tournament, a difference with other teams that can choose a non-playing captain to lead the team.

PGA of Australia CEO Gavin Kirkman was delighted to announce such a strong team for the tournament that Jean, Rae, Colbert, Fisher and Voglis will represent Australia's PGA professionals on the world stage.

"We are very excited to finally announce the Australian team for the Women & # 39; s PGA Cup after confirming our commitment early last year," said Kirkman.

"Our female PGA professionals in Australia are highly skilled and are certainly among the best in the world.

"I am sure Lisa will lead the team to a fantastic result and at the same time encourage all women from Team Australia to perform as well as possible and give everything.

"I look forward to showing them the rest of the world and making us all proud."

In addition to the US; Canada, Great Britain and Ireland, the Netherlands and Sweden have committed to play the 2019 Women & # 39; s PGA Cup.

Each member of the Australia team is a PGA member of Australia's professional department working full-time in the Australian golf industry to meet eligibility criteria for qualifying for the Women's PGA Cup

The Australian team is proud to partner with Cutter & Buck for the 2019 Women & # 39; s PGA Cup, where each member of the team will wear Cutter & Buck clothing during their title campaign.
