MARANGAROO golfer Bronte Colbert has been announced as part of Australia’s inaugural Women’s PGA Cup team.

The first-of-its-kind competition will see competing countries select teams of female golf teaching professionals to play for ultimate bragging rights in Austin, Texas in October.

Colbert will be the only WA representative, teeing off alongside Gillian Rae (NSW), Jade Fisher (Queensland), Sienna Voglis (Victoria), and captain Lisa Jean (Victoria).

She will also be the youngest member of the team at 25 years old and having completed her PGA traineeship in 2017, her recent experience has been highlighted as an asset come tournament time.

“We’ve assembled a great team for the Women’s PGA Cup and I’m honoured to lead them as captain,” Jean said. “We’re all really excited to be a part of a tournament that gives us the chance to showcase what we do on the world stage and show other countries the calibre of female PGA Professionals in Australia.

“We each have strengths in different areas of the game but I think that’s what will make us such strong competitors.”

Formed by the PGA of America, the tournament will be a 54-hole stroke play event, with each team’s lowest three scores counted after each round, where the winning country will be the team with the lowest 54-hole aggregate total.

The US, Canada, Great Britain and Ireland, the Netherlands and Sweden have committed to play.
