Cameron Davis, one of NSW and Australian golf's hottest properties, is turning professional.

Davis will join the paid ranks at next week's Isuzu Queensland Open and a fortnight later will make his debut on the US PGA Tour.

The 21-year-old Sydneysider confirmed his decision to turn professional a day after reaching a career-high No.4 in the world amateur rankings, in his mind, it is the perfect time to make the transition.

Davis believes the time is right to make the move, especially after his bold showing at last week's Asia-Pacific Amateur, when he followed a second in 2015 with a fourth placing.

"I've gone up in the rankings a little bit with some recent performances and been getting noticed a bit more for my golf in different places, so in terms of opportunities around the world, I think now is the best time,” Davis said.

Davis won the 2015 Australian Amateur Championship but had last summer ruined with a hand injury that kept him out of the game for several months. Since his return however, the results have come with a rush for the tall right-hander, leading his New South Wales team to a pulsating victory in the Interstate Series in Brisbane in May, then playing with distinction through the Northern Hemisphere summer, including the low individual honour at the 2016 Eisenhower trophy and a course record at Rowallan Castle in Scotland.

His professional debut will come at The Brisbane Golf Club, where he shone in May, and then continue at another happy hunting ground at Mayakoba in Mexico.

 "It will be totally different set-up on the courses and different pressures, for sure. But I have seen a lot of putts drop in on those courses and seen some good shots, too,”

"I think that will help settle the nerves and if I can play steady golf the way I have been lately, I feel like I won't be lost out there,” Davis said.
