The Web.Com Tour moves to Newburgh in Indiana this week for the United Leasing Championship Presented by PTI where a large field of Australasians will again chase the money they need to be inside the top 25 at season's end and graduate to the PGA Tour.

Following his very good tournament last week, Cameron Percy has moved inside that top twenty five to 21st and now heads the Australian challenge although New Zealander Steve Alker is on top of the Australasian list in 1th position. Alistair Presnell is just outside the top 5 in 26th position while Rod Pampling and Ashley Hall remain inside the top 40.

Hall lost a playoff for this event last year so will be keen to make amends for that and launch himself well and truly into contention for a place on the PGA Tour next year.

Australasians who will tee it up are, Alker, Hall, Percy, and Pampling, plus Steve Allan, Gavin Coles, Adam Crawford, Scott Gardiner who is struggling to get starts on the PGA Tour at present, Mathew Goggin, James Nitties, Nick O'Hern, Alistair Presnell and Aron Price. Peter Lonard is anxiously awaiting a stsart from the reserve bench.
