Turned Pro In
LIV debut

Leishman turned pro in 2005 and has recorded 13 wins across multiple tours. A top 50 player for more than 350 weeks, the Australian reached 12th in the world rankings in October 2017. But the Ripper GC member admits his true calling is grass, not golf. When he’s at home, Leishman mows and trims his lawn daily, saying “It’s become an obsession… me and my sports psychologist talk about it as my sort of therapy.”
