2019 Vic Open TV Times, Leaderboards, Preview

Women’s defending champion and world No.6 is Australia’s Minjee Lee

The innovative ISPS HANDA Vic Open – the only golf tournament of its kind in the world, where the men’s and women’s fields compete on the same courses, at the same time, for an equal share of the prize money – has gone ahead in leaps and bounds in recent years.

With the help of co-sanctioning with the European Tour (men), LPGA (women), the PGA Tour of Australasia (men) and ALPG (women), and a combined prize purse of AU$3 million the tournament is attracting increasingly high quality fields of top male and female golfers.

The added prominence of the tournament is also a boon for Aussie golf fans unable to make the 13th Beach Golf Links in Barwon Heads (starting this Thursday), with live television coverage – both free to air on ABC and on Fox Sports. 

Male marquee players in the field:

  • Geoff Ogilvy – Major Champion
  • Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston – European Tour winner
  • Lucas Herbert – European Tour player and 5th highest ranked Australian in the Official World Golf Rankings
  • Ryo Ishikawa – 14 time winner on the Japan Golf Tour
  • Jake McLeod – 2018 ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit winner
  • Full field is available at pga.org.au
