REIGNING US Masters champion Adam Scott will be returning to Australian in November to defend his Australian Masters title at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

Scott will attempt to join his mentor Greg Norman who remains the only golfer to successfully defend the title in the 35 year history of the event.

“I’m excited to be returning to Melbourne to defend my Australian Masters title at Royal Melbourne, one of my favourite courses. I’ve always had fantastic support in Melbourne, and I’m sure this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever,” Scott said this week as part of the official announcement.

The Australian Masters is on this year from November 14 to 17, with the Australian PGA Championship on the week before in Scott’s native Queensland, the World Cup the following week, also at Royal Melbourne, and the Australian Open, one of Scott’s favourite events, on the week after that (November 28 – December 1) at Royal Sydney.

Scott will be under pressure (even if some of it comes from himself) to play in all four events and spread the joy of his historic victory at Augusta National in April around his home country.

It may be a bit much for him to play four events in a row, but Australian golf fans can only hope.
