Tim Stewart (born 15 February 1985) is an Australian professional golfer. A former Australian Amateur champion, he turned professional in November 2008 and is now playing on the PGA Tour of Australasia and Asian Tour.

Personal life[edit]

Stewart was born in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, but moved to Singapore in 1989. After another stop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, he returned to Sydney in 1998 and lives there today on its Northern Beaches. Stewart first began playing golf at the age of seven, when his father began taking him to the Green Fairways driving range in Singapore.[1]

Career[edit]

Stewart began playing as an amateur while attending school in 2003, finding considerable success and winning the Monash Masters in 2005. In that same year, he also finished as runner-up in the Mollymook Open. Stewart made a huge splash in 2006 by winning the Australian Amateur at Royal Hobart in 2006. With that win under his belt, Stewart began playing full-time, finishing as runner-up in the Rice Planters Amateur, Eastern Amateur, Dunes Medal, and Yowani Open Amateur in 2006. He was able to capture more championships in 2007, at the historic Riversdale Cup and the Singapore Open Amateur. Stewart also finished second at both the British Amateur (to American Drew Weaver), as well as the New South Wales Amateur Championship. Finally, Stewart scored another win in 2008, this time at the Tasmanian Open.

In November 2008, Stewart announced that he was turning pro.[2]

On 1 April 2009, Stewart clinched a place in the 2009 Open Championship at the International Final Qualifying in Asia, capturing the final spot in a nine-man playoff.
