Baddeley Turns Pro Hopes to Play in US


Australian Open champion Aaron Baddeley will turn professional and says he hopes to play the U.S. next year.
Baddeley, 19, will defend his title later this month instead of trying the U.S. qualifying tournament, but hopes to earn enough money while on sponsors' exemptions to play regularly. He will make the leap to the pro ranks next week while competing in the Taiheiyo Masters in Japan.
