Teenager Higginbottom to turn pro



Australian teenager Jake Higginbottom has announced his decision to turn professional, only two days after his breakthrough victory at the New Zealand Golf Open.

The 19-year-old Higginbottom had to forego the $72 000 winner's cheque after winning the New Zealand tournament by a shot from compatriots Peter Wilson and Jason Norris.

He will make his professional debut at the New South Wales PGA Championship at the Mount Broughton course in New South Wales state from Thursday.

Higginbottom will also be in the field for the Australian Open at Sydney's Lakes course next week and the Australian PGA championships at Coolum in December.
