Baddeley hints of American future

Aaron Baddeley gave his broadest hint that he will turn professional and move to the United States after completing his US PGA tour debut in the Honda Classic.

The teenage Australian Open champion shot a final round of 71 for a seven-under-par total of 281 to share 57th place, 12 strokes behind the winner, local resident Dudley Hart.

Baddeley, of course, couldn't collect any cash for his efforts and was disappointed with his putting throughout the week.

But he could become very accustomed to American greens, electing to follow Greg Norman and make his base in the US.

When asked whether he was considering setting up home in America, he replied: "Absolutely. But I don't have to worry about that for six months."

He added: "I have enjoyed this week but it was so frustrating because, after two good opening rounds of 69 and 68, I couldn't get my putter working."

Baddeley will be in action again in this week's US tour event in the countdown to Masters debut at Augusta National next month.
