AUSTRALIA’S big three tournaments of 2014 kick of this week with Adam Scott aiming to make it three in a row when the Australian Masters takes to the Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne.
The world No.2 beat Ian Poulter home at Kingston Heath in 2012 and followed it up with a victory over a top field at Royal Melbourne last year ahead of the World Cup.
The tournament again stays in Melbourne’s famed sandelt for an event that features a big cast of Australian stars as well as a smattering of international visitors.
US PGA Tour winning Americans Kyle Stanley and Boo Weekley head the international cast while Aussie participants include former long-time local Geoff Ogilvy, Stuart Appleby, Steven Bowditch, Brett Rumford and Jarrod Lyle.
Scott was looking to make it a special week before going on to tackle the Australian Open in Sydney next week and later the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines.
“To win a hat-trick of events is something I haven’t done before and would be right up there in my career achievements, especially to do it in Melbourne at the Masters,” Scott said.
“The Metropolitan Golf Club is a fantastic course and I am looking forward to playing a tournament there for the first time,” said Scott.
The Metropolitan course was earning rave reviews from the players after practice rounds so if you able to get to the tournament it should be well worthwhile. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster
