Aaron Baddeley 2007 Australian Masters Champion

It's hard to believe Aaron Baddeley once thought of quiting golf and returning back to his native Australia because he was homesick. That didn't become a reality and he's now the 2007 Australian Masters Champion after defeating Daniel Chopra with a birdie on the 4th playoff hole in Melbourne. His hard time in the US back in 2000 obviously has paved the way for the this guy to rise to #18 in World Rankings(soon to rise after this weeks win). Nice season for Aaron as he won this year on the PGA Tour at the FBR Open, he also had 7 top tens. Stuart Appleby might of also been in the playoff too but his double bogey on #18 killed any chance of that.

"Back in late 2000 I honestly told my dad I wanted to quit," he said.

"Golf was just too hard, I was homesick and I wanted to come back to Australia and things were just too difficult."

Badds is a great golfer. His consistancy is definitely a stand out feature of his game. He was also the highest place Aussie at the PGA Champs last week also.
