Kuchar in Search of a Schedule


Matt Kuchar is extending his stay in Australia. The 1997 U.S. Amateur champion has said he will play in next week's Australian PGA at Royal Queensland and also the Ford Open at Kooyonga the following week.
Kuchar is making his professional debut at this week's Holden Australian Open in Melbourne. Through two rounds, the 22-year-old Georgia Tech product is six shots off the lead at even par. Kuchar opened in 69, but posted seven bogeys en route to a second-round 75.
Kuchar, who has no official playing status, hopes to play in a number of 2001 PGA Tour events via sponsor's invitations. He has already been invited to play in the SONY Open in Hawaii in January.
