Thomas Pieters is the headline name in the field when the third edition of the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth gets under way at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club.
The Belgian, who has three European Tour victories to his name, starred on debut during Europe's defeat to the United States in the 2016 Ryder Cup where he won four points including his Sunday Singles match against JB Holmes and will be seen as a contender for the unique event in Perth.
