Team: HyFlyers Golf Club
Previous event team finish: 13th at LIV Golf Miami
Season-long team standings: T-12
Top finisher from previous event: Brendan Steele, T-18
Fun stat: HyFlyers GC has five total eagles this season, which ranks fifth best in the League.


A shot of confidence is what HyFlyers Golf Club needs right now, and the timing of this week’s event in Australia couldn’t be better.

Coming off a T-12 finish in Miami, the team needs a fresh start with some positive vibes. Enter LIV Golf Adelaide, where plenty of positive memories were made in 2023. HyFlyers GC finished fourth at The Grange Golf Club, just four shots from the podium and only seven shots behind winner 4Aces GC. A return to a layout that fits the team’s strengths should be the boost it needs.

Cameron Tringale led the way for his team at Adelaide last season with a T-3 finish. He is currently 39th in the individual standings and is coming off one of his better performances of the year in Miami, where he finished T-21 in tough scoring conditions on a legendarily difficult Doral layout.

Captain Phil Mickelson continues to lead his team and is its top points producer. The six-time major champion has his game sharp and is coming off a made cut at the Masters where he finished T-43. The three-time Masters champion finished 16th at Adelaide last season, and while his results have been up and down in 2024, it was just three events ago when he finished a LIV-career best T-6 at LIV Golf Jeddah.

With Mickelson and Tringale expected to be on point, Brendan Steele will be key if the team wants to jump up the season-long team standings. And Steele will be up for the challenge. Despite being 41st in the individual standings, Steele is coming off his best finish of the season, a T-18 at LIV Golf Miami. It was the best finish of any HyFlyers GC player. Steele also finished 29th at Adelaide last season and opened fast with a 5-under 67 for his best score of the week.

It’s a crucial week for newcomer Andy Ogletree. He is still getting his footing on his new team, and while positive results have been challenging, they are within grasp. He’s T-48 in the season-long standings, but it was just two events ago when he had his best finish, a T-29 in Hong Kong. If his confidence and ability line up in Adelaide, the team will receive a huge boost.
