Chalmers confirms challenge for Aussie golf’s triple crown

Greg Chalmers ... no longer under the radar

GREG CHALMERS has confirmed he will vie to become only the second ever player to win Australian golf’s triple crown.

Following his terrific wins at the 2011 Emirates Australian Open and the Australian PGA Championship, Chalmers is now a definite starter for the 2011 JBWere Masters in Melbourne the week before Christmas.

JBWere Masters event owner and promoter IMG has confirmed Chalmers will be a participant at the Victoria Golf Club from December 15-18 and will attempt to match the achievement of Robert Allenby in 2005.

“We are delighted to have Greg in our field and congratulate him on his outstanding success this summer.  We wish him all the very best at Victoria Golf Club in his bid to win the gold jacket and the Triple Crown

,” IMG’s David Rollo said.

Chalmers will have a hot field to overcome, headlined by World No.1 Luke Donald, fellow Englishman Ian Poulter and young Italian star Matteo Manassero.

The Australian challenge will be led by Geoff Ogilvy, John Senden, Robert Allenby, Brendan Jones and defending champion Stuart Appleby.

Also in the field are past Masters champions Michael Campbell, Rod Pampling, Peter Senior, Brad Hughes, Craig Parry, Peter Lonard and Richard Green.

Tickets are available through Ticketek online here or by calling 132 849.
