Leishman commits to Australian PGA return

Marc Leishman has become the first big-name golfer to commit to play the 2018 Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast.

Leishman says he has a burning desire to claim one of Australia's big tournament titles, something that has eluded him despite the overseas success that has taken him to the world No.17 ranking.

A late addition to the field in 2017, three-time US tour winner Leishman returns to the European tour co-sanctioned tournament at Royal Pines on November 29-December 2.
