THE 2015 Australian Open is assured a stellar field with Adam Scott now joining world No.2 Jordan Spieth as a confirmed starter.
The 2009 Stonehaven Cup winner has made the event something of an annual fixture on his schedule and would no doubt love to have his name engraved on the trophy a second time.
“The Australian Open is a tournament that I value highly, Sydney is a great city and The Australian Golf Club is an excellent venue for Championship golf. I am really looking forward to competing to win my National Open once again.’’ Scott said this week.
Golf Australia’s chief executive, Stephen Pitt, said Scott’s appearance would provide a foundation for what should be a white hot field. “Adam has been a great supporter of the Open and he is always thereabouts at the finish,’’ said Pitt. “We look forward to seeing him play again and we know that the crowds appreciate not only his golf, but the way he carries himself. He’s an immensely popular figure and a great ambassador for the sport in this country.’’
The 2013 US Masters winner was pipped at the post by Rory McIlroy at the Australian Open later that year at Royal Sydney and was fifth behind Spieth last year.
The Open will return to the Australian Golf Club from November 26 -29 with tickets available through Ticketek at www.ticketek.com or by calling 132 849.
