West Australian, Curtis Luck, and his partner in the two-man team’s event, American Hank Lebioda, have finished an impressive 5th at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans.

The PGA Tour rookie pair finished in a share of 5th place with three others and although six shots from the winners, John Rahm and Ryan Palmer, it was an encouraging week for the pair.

Luck and Lebioda, friends from their time on the Web.Com Tour together, will earn US$163,000 each in the lucrative event, for Luck his second biggest cheque in the game after his US$216,000 for a 5th place at the Quicken Loans event in 2017.

For Lebioda it is by some way his biggest cheque in golf, the Web.Com Tour graduate recording a previous best of 17th place at the recent Texas Open.

Matt Jones was the only other Australian to make the cut, the former Australian Open Champion pairing with J.J. Spaun to finish 22nd.

Spain's Rahm and Texan, Palmer, ran out comfortable winners, Palmer securing his fourth PGA Tour title first title since his win in Hawaii in 2010 while the wait has not been quite as long for Rahm, the Spaniard winning his third PGA Tour title and his first since early 2018.

The winners finished three clear of the pairing of Tommy Fleetwood and Rahm’s fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia.
