Bendigo golfers Lucas Herbert and Andrew Martin are among the field at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth.
Herbert showed top form at the event last year and was in the running to win the tournament.
However, during the semi-final Herbert was defeated by Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat and went on to finish the tournament in third position.
One of the tournament's appeals is its unique format which combines 54 holes of traditional stroke play across the first three rounds, followed by a six-hole knockout match play to decide the final round.
"You have to be on your game really quick and really early," Herbert said.
Herbert, now the talk of the Australian golf community, has set solid goals for himself this year.
"I would love to finish sort of top‑20 in the race to Dubai. I think given the year I had last year and finishing 48th, I think top‑20 is a reasonable goal," Herbert said.
With a lower rank, it will present Herbert with the opportunity to play more major tournaments, giving him greater exposure to the best players in the world, and to ultimately secure a spot on the US Tour.
"I definitely want to get to the top‑50 in the world, so just working on those goals, but you set them at the start of the year and then forget about them, and you go about worrying about the day‑to‑day processes and ticking box at each tournament, making sure you're ready to go come Thursday," he said.
Fellow Bendigo golfer Martin will also compete at the tournament.
The Super 6 will start on Thursday and will run through to Sunday at Perth's Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
Herbert will tee off at 7am (10am AEDT) with 2019 Vic Open Champion David Law (SCO) and Min Woo Lee (AUS)
Martin will tee off at 8:30am (11:30am AEDT) with Jordan Zunic (AUS) and Jin-ho Choi (KOR).
