Sydney’s Harrison Endycott has recorded his best-ever finish on the Korn Ferry Tour with a 5th place finish at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open in Broussard, Louisiana.
Endycott who is into his 4th full year as a professional after a stellar amateur career which included membership of the 2016 Eisenhower Trophy winning team and a win at the Prestigious Porter Cup in the US, recorded a final round 65 to finish alone in 5th place.
Three birdies in his last four holes at the Le Triomphe Golf and Country Club elevated Endycott to his best finish in his second season on the Korn Ferry Tour after two years playing the South American Tour.
Currently ranked outside the top 1000 in the world, this result is a boost of confidence for the 24 year old and although he remains well down the rankings on the Korn Ferry Tour it is clearly a move in the right direction.
Endycott has finished runner-up on three occasions in his professional career, one of those at the 2018 Vic Open, another at the 2019 Queensland PGA Championship and the other at an event on the South American Tour in 2018 but this represents a very important and timely result for him.
Aaron Baddeley was 23rd, while New Zealander Nick Voke, and Endycott’s fellow Australians, Curtis Luck and Jamie Arnold all made the cut but finished well back.
