Profile: Marc Leishman

Marc Leishman

Name: Marc Leishman

Age: 36

From: Warrnambool, Vic

Previous Australian Open form: Missed the cut the last time he played, in 2015, and was outside the top 40 in 2012. Best result was 11th in 2007 at The Australian, but has not produced his best form at home.

Primary Tour: US PGA Tour

Career wins: 12

Comment: Our most consistent player in recent years, and reached a playoff in the Open Championship at St Andrews in 2015 as well as winning four times on the US Tour. Alas, his big-hitting and pure short game has not translated to performances at home, perhaps because he becomes too anxious.
