The Australian golfing summer hits it stride this week with the Australian PGA Championship kicking things off at the Royal Queensland Golf Course. The course is relatively flat with not much rough to speak of. However, bunkers are strategically placed around the course and finding the right side of the fairway to allow yourself the best angle of attack to the green is the key here.

Key Correlation Tournaments
Ryan Fox: Kiwi who has enjoyed a remarkable season with two wins and a ton more times in contention. Won his first Tour event in Australia and Royal Queensland should suit him to a tee.
Adrian Meronk: Big hitter who can overpower Royal Queensland. Mixing form a little of late but has plenty of birdies in him when his putter is hot and did finish T-7 at the DP World Tour Championship.
Brad Kennedy:Flying on the Japan Tour. Has been a particularly quick starter and few in this field have the ability to go as low as Kennedy.
Greg Chalmers:Veteran who has won this tournament twice in the last 11 years. He returns to Australia after a long time away but has always played his best in his homeland.
