Media Release:

 

The Gippsland Super 6 will return to Yallourn Golf Club from 21-24 January 2021 to restart the 2020/2021 ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia wraparound season.
 
A field of 132 golf professionals will compete across three days of stroke play with the top 24 advancing to the final day’s dramatic six-hole match play shootout.
 
The ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia event, in partnership with the Victorian Government, is one of golf’s most exciting and dynamic formats that promises to entertain spectators.
 
Victorian Tom Power Horan took home the title in a rain-affected, shortened strokeplay edition of the event last November, with organisers excited to explore the fully-fledged flag hunting format this time around.
 
As the first official Order of Merit event on the Tour since February 2020, the 2021 Gippsland Super 6 will be a domestic drawcard, with big names in Australian golf expected to tour on home soil, instead of abroad, in a major coup for regional Victoria.
 
Local amateurs will also have an opportunity to take part in the tournament through a series of Gippsland qualifying events, following in the footsteps of 2019 home-grown main field competitors Tim Coffey, Danny Bullen and Mark Allen.
 
Gippslanders will get a taste of the golfing action during the week leading up to the highly anticipated Gippsland Super 6 with a series of PGA Pro-Am Series events scheduled at Traralgon, Yarram, Bairnsdale and Warragul.
 
Originally scheduled for November this year, the 2020 event was postponed due to coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure the competitors and Gippsland spectators could enjoy a high-profile event that is COVID-safe.
 
The Gippsland Super 6 is being delivered in partnership with the Victorian Government through the Latrobe Valley Authority’s $85 million Latrobe Valley Sports and Community Initiative.
 
The Gippsland Super 6 will take place from Thursday 21 January to Sunday 24 January 2021 at Yallourn Golf Club.
