My tip for victory is Robert Allenby. He has been the best performed Australian in 2008 and I think he will carry forward into next week.

To join in all the live action and fun, you can purchase your PGA Championship tickets at half price prior to December 4, by calling the PGA Hotline on 1800 009 499.

And please don't hesitate to bring the young ones as they are more than welcome to enjoy all the fun of the complimentary PGA golf activities located right beside the golf driving range.

As well, please be aware that public parking will be located at the Mt Coolum Golf Club with complimentary transportation to and from the Hyatt Coolum Golf Course.
