Jason Day was not without a chance of victory at the Houston Open and while he didn't do enough to take home PGA Tour win number 13, the World No.41 will head to Augusta with a top 10 under his belt following a lean month.

Adam Scott's return to golf after contracting COVID-19 a fortnight ago also provided a confidence boost. Australia's top-ranked male golfer broke 70 three times in Houston on his way to a T32 result.

Amateur Gabi Ruffels showed her immense class once again on the pro stage, the USC student cracking the top five at the Symetra Tour's season-ender.

Rookie pro Steph Kyriacou has shown she's not afraid of the bright lights in 2020 and the St Michael's member was terrific again this week in Dubai.

Three straight rounds of 71 secured Kyriacou a T17 result, following on from her scorching hot streak of four consecutive top 10s in Europe.

But our Aussie of the week shone brightest in the Dubai night sky as our highest-ranked golfer, superstar Minjee Lee, saluted in a playoff.

A sensational birdie putt on the first playoff hole was enough to sink fellow former ISPS Handa Vic Open champion Celine Boutier, earning West Australian Lee an eighth professional win and clear Aussie of the week honours.
