Asian Tour Victories
(1) 2006 Macau Open.
Kane continued to establish himself on the Asian Tour in 2008. In his third season in the region, he finished 15th on the Order of Merit, thanks to a strong front half of the year. He was tied seventh in the SAIL Open in India, finished equal third at the Maybank Malaysian Open and was joint ninth in the inaugural Ballantine's Championship in Korea. His form dipped towards the middle of the season but Kane regained his confidence with a third place finish at the Iskandar Johor Open where he challenged eventual winner Retief Goosen down the back nine on Sunday. He made an immediate impact after earning his Asian Tour card from Qualifying School in 2006. As he finished 33rd in Qualifying School, his first tournament was only in May at the inaugural Aamby Valley Asian Masters in India where he finished tied fifth. In the following week, he broke through in style to win the rain-hit Macau Open. In the final round played under poor conditions, he came from three shots behind to lift the title ahead of compatriot Scott Barr. Also produced a tied sixth finish at the Taiwan Open to end the year in 36th place on the Order of Merit in his rookie season. In 2007, Kane struggled early on and admitted he took his foot off the pedal after his Macau win and developed bad habits in his game. A tied 13th finish at the TCL Classic in China turned his season around as he went on to produce four successive top-15 finishes, including a joint sixth outing in his Macau Open defence. Enjoyed a tied eighth finish at the lucrative Barclays Singapore Open and finished the year in 16th place on the Order of Merit.
Graduated from the University of Colorado with a communications degree and played on the mini circuits in the United States after turning professional in 2004. Recorded three victories during his college years and was a third-team All American, which is one of the higher acclamations in college golf in the US. Kane started his golfing life when he was nine through the encouragement of his father, Brian at the Lismore Golf Club in New South Wales.
