Australian PGA returns to Brisbane, WPGA delayed

Following the success of the event in January, the PGA of Australia has announced the return of the Australian PGA Championship to Brisbane from 24-27 November at Royal Queensland Golf Club.

The tournament will also mark the start of the DP World Tour season and will feature the richest prize on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia schedule with a record $2 million up for grabs.

“I think the return of the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship in 2021 will stay in our hearts for a long time,” said PGA of Australia CEO Gavin Kirkman.

“Everyone’s been through so much in the last two years in so many ways, so to see so many people out on the course at Royal Queensland following their favourite players, and to see the players themselves getting that opportunity to compete, it was just very heart-warming for us.”

This year’s PGA Championship will be played as a stand-alone event, with plans underway for the WPGA Championship, which made its debut this year, to take place separately from 2023.

Queensland’s Jed Morgan won the event earlier this year by a record-breaking 11 shots over Andrew Dodt earning one of three DP World Tour cards on offer for the top three players on the local Order of Merit at season’s end.
