New South Wales golfer Harrison Endycott will play his first event as a professional outside the PGA Tour of Australasia when he tees it up this evening in the opening event of the 2018 Latinoamerica Tour season, the Guatamela Stella Artois Open in Antigua.

Endycott gained access to the PGA Tour's Central and South American based tour when he finished 4th at the Qualifying School in Florida in early January and after an already promising start to his professional career on the Australasian Tour he will be keen to take his significant game internationally.

Endycott turned professional last November following an amateur career that included success in several of Australia’s leading amateur events.

A win at the Porter Cup in the US and at the Eisenhower Trophy in 2016 where he was part of the winning Australian side along with Curtis Luck and now Australian Open winner Cameron Davis headlined his impressive amateur record.

Since his debut in the paid ranks at the NSW Open last November, the 21-year-old from Avondale Golf Club in Sydney’s northern suburbs has made four of five cuts, the most memorable being when he finishing runner-up to Simon Hawkes at the Oates Victorian Open where a cheque for $66,000 will assist his cause.

Endycott's most recent 11th place finish at the ISPS Handa New Zealand Open was also a boost especially given the manner in which he powered home over the closing nine after a disastrous start to his final round.

He will be joined in the field by fellow Australian Ryan Ruffels who is now playing his second season on the Latinoamerica Tour as he looks to graduate to the Web.Com Tour.

Victorian Ryan Ruffels is also in this week's field.

Ruffels finished runner-up on two occasions in the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica in 2017 but unfortunately had not done enough to gain access to this year's Web.Com Tour.  

A player needs to finish inside the top five on the season-long money list to secure a place on the Web.Com Tour the following season.
