PGA Tour statement re Australian Open incident

On Thursday 6th December 2012 a physical altercation took place between two caddies during Round 1 of the Australian Open at The Lakes Golf Club.
 
The incident occurred just prior to their groups taking to the golf course.
 
PGA Tour of Australasia officials met the caddies and their respective players immediately after their round to clarify details of the altercation.
 
Having spoken with those involved, there is still a need to speak with a number of other individuals who may be able to provide further information on the incident.
 
To be fair to everyone concerned we need to let our inquiry go through the correct process in line with the PGA’s Regulations, however we will endeavour to reach an outcome by the end of next week. 
 
The PGA Tour of Australasia and our Members in no way condone this behaviour, and we are saddened the incident has drawn attention away from this great tournament.
 
If as a result of our inquiries other agencies need to be involved they will be notified.
