Ogilvy returns to WA golf event

''US Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy will return to Australia to play the Perth International at Lake Karrinyup Country Club from 23 to 26 October.
''
The 37-year-old has had a strong year on the PGA Tour, winning the Barracuda Championship earlier this month - his first win since 2010.

He has eight PGA Tour and four European Tour wins under his belt, including three World Golf Championships. Following his recent win in Reno, Ogilvy said he was looking forward to continuing his strong form in Perth.

“I’ve been putting in a lot of practice to get to my current form, and I’m hoping I can continue to play well over the next few months,” he said.

“I have a strong affiliation with Lake Karrinyup Country Club as my business partner, Mike Clayton, was responsible for remodelling the course layout in 2007. The course now has plenty of challenges, I’m sure Mike will be putting pressure on me to perform well!

“The last time I actually played in Perth was in 2000 for the Heineken Classic, so it’s been a long while since I visited the West. I’m looking forward to playing there again.”

Already announced to join Ogilvy for the tournament are 2013 US PGA Champion Jason Dufner, world No.22 Victor Dubuisson, five-time European Tour Champion Brett Rumford, defending Perth International champion Korean born Jin Jeong, and Australian Steven Bowditch who won his maiden PGA Tour title in April at the Texas Open.
