2016 Australian Open: TV Times, Leaderboard, Digital Resources, Preview


ASG is at the Australian Open at Royal Sydney Golf Club this week for what shapes, at least initially, as a showdown between former champions Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth.

Both have compelling reasons to makes amends and win here; Scott obviously still smarts at being overrun on the final hole by Rory McIlroy at this venue in 2013, an unexpected turn of events at the time that saw him fail to win the third leg of the Aussie “Triple Crown”; whilst Spieth used his course record final round win in 2014 to jump start one of the best ever years in professional golf, only to be beaten at The Australian last year by Matt Jones.

There are some other rather handy golfers competing here as well of course: the likes of Geoff Ogilvy, Aaron Baddeley, recent PGA TOUR winner Rod Pampling, and a whole swale of Australia’s promising new crop of youngsters.

Baddeley is back at the course that saw his career skyrocket when he won as an 18 year old amateur.

The now 35 year old Baddeley revealed as his Sydney media conference yesterday that he still largely has the same ambition – to be world number one – and reckons he now has the experience and wisdom the achieve the goal.

Other past champions lining up include Greg Chalmers, Peter Senior, Craig Parry, John Senden, Robert Allenby and Stephen Allan.

ASG will be at Royal Sydney for what is the 101st Australian Open this week (14th time at Royal Sydney), hopefully filing the odd interesting story, getting some photos together for a photo gallery we’ll update as the tournament progresses, and enjoying the great atmosphere these events create.
