This week European Tour Weekly travels to Australia for the ISPS HANDA Perth International. ETW will be on the range at Lake Karrinyup Country Club in Western Australia with the latest news and views from the players on the eve of the event.

Last year, American Bo Van Pelt won the inaugural ISPS HANDA Perth International. Van Pelt overcame the challenge from fellow countryman Jason Dufner to eventually win by two shots. ETW caught up with Van Pelt recently to talk about his win and how he’s looking forward to defending the title this week.

As always European Tour Weekly will highlight the significant action from the most recent event on The European Tour. This week that means a return trip to Vilamoura for the Portugal Masters.

For a lot of the players the Portugal Masters was the last chance to claim a place on The European Tour for the 2014 season. Fortunately for European Tour rookie Eddie Pepperell that wasn’t the case, as he sits just outside the top 70 on The Race to Dubai. ETW recently met up with Pepperell as he coached a kid’s clinic at a local school in Oxfordshire. 

Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
