"I'm excited and looking forward to seeing the course for the first time,” Rankin said.

"I'm feeling good about my game and I have been playing well over the last few months but most important it's great to have the opportunity to play a new event on our schedule.”

The field is stacked with quality professionals, including Steven Jeffress, Jacob Boyce, Paul Hayden and Jack Wilson.

A performer on the international stage, Jeffress will be one to watch as his skill and knowledge will prove beneficial around the Tin Can Bay layout.

"It's great to be back up here in the Gympie region competing again,” Jeffress said.

"I've heard it's a great course and the competition is going to be of the highest level.”
