Adam Scott, the only Australian to have ever won masters, is coming home for the Australian open.
Golf Australia today confirmed Scott, 36, would tee it up in the nation’s most prestigious tournament from November 17-20 at Royal Sydney Golf Club.
The former world No.1, Scott has won 29 professional tournaments so far has had no fewer than 15 top-10 finishes in major championships.
“The Australian Open has always been a tournament I value highly, Sydney is a great city and I have fond memories of Royal Sydney as a great venue for championship golf,” Scott said.
The Queenslander won the Open at New South Wales Golf Club in 2009.
“I am really looking forward to competing to win my second Stonehaven Cup in November.”
The last time Australian open took place at the Royal Sydney golf club, Scott lost to Rory Mcilroy by a single stroke margin.
