New South Wales golfer Cameron Davis faces his most significant test this week when he tees it up at the Japan Open near Osaka, the 18 year old having qualified a as result of reaching the semi finals at the Japan Amateur Championship earlier this year.
The tall youngster from the Roseville and Monash Golf Clubs takes on the Japan Tour’s best this week with the notable and surprising exception of Hideki Matsuyama who instead of playing his national championship is in the field for this week’s Shriners Hospital event in Las Vegas.
Davis also won the China Amateur Open Championship late in 2012 and is considered a bright prospect amongst a solid group of Australian youngsters.
Other Australasians in the field for this week’s event are Brad Kennedy, Aaron Townsend, former winner, Paul Sheehan, Steve Conran and Michael Hendry.
Australia’s leading golfer in Japan, Brendan Jones, has ongoing injury issues and will not play and is likely to be out of action for a while.
