Two-time PGA Tour winner Cameron Champ hopes to finish his season at a high point after announcing that he will participate in the Australian PGA Championship.

Champ, the longest batter in professional golf, will compete in his first tournament down under at #AusPGA at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast on December 19-22.

Champ participates in a world class field with back-to-back champion Cameron Smith and former world number 1 Adam Scott.

The 24-year-old Californian star says he is excited to participate in one of the sport's most prestigious tournaments.

"I can't wait to go to the Gold Coast and end the year against some of the best in the world," said Champ.

"I am sure there will be a lot of local hype after the Presidential Cup and I have heard great things about the golf course and the fun atmosphere surrounding the event. I am really looking forward to winning the tournament."

Champ, ranked No. 71 in the world, is considered one of the brightest prospects of the PGA TOUR, with its long-ball driver a popular drawcard with fans.

Few players have made such a big impact as Champ in his first two seasons on the Tour.

Champ won the Safeway Open last month in an emotionally charged version. It follows his life-changing victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship last October.

Smith hopes to make history by becoming the first person in over 100 years to win three consecutive Australian PGA championship titles.

The players will compete for AU $ 1.5 million in prize money, and while the Australian PGA championship continues to co-sanction with the European Tour, players have the opportunity to earn valuable world ranking points in the 2019/2020 season.
