Fast becoming a player with a reputation for the big events, Leishman was on the radar here last year and hit our trading target early on as he started fast. Leish eventually recorded a runner up spot which adds to two other top 10s here (another 2nd included). After bringing us a nice payout in the FRL Market at the Masters in 2013, Leishman finished T4, and if you look at his recent events, his best finishes have been in the WGCs and majors. 9th at the HSBC, 3rd at Bridgestone and 5th in the Open Championship, the Aussie also finished in the top 10 at the difficult Congressional. Marc's season opener in Hawaii included a second round 62.
