ADAM SCOTT will be celebrating his US Masters victory with his home fans later this year with news he is a confirmed stater at the 2013 Australian PGA Championship in Queensland in November.

That means Scott will be playing at least the first two events of the Australian golfing summer – the PGA Championship at its new home at the RACV Royal Pines on the Gold Coast November 7 – 10 and the Australian Masters the following week at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

It is hoped he will continue on to play in the World Cup the following week at Royal Melbourne and the Australian Open the week after that at Royal Sydney.

The PGA of Australia happily announced today Scott will headline the Royal Pines field when the tournament returns to the Gold Coast for the first time since 1975.

“To be able to play at home at Royal Pines is going to be a lot of fun. All my friends and family will be out there so it’s going to be exciting way to start,” said Scott this week during his preparations for the US Open.

“The Gold Coast has been so supportive of me my whole career so it’s a good chance for me to hopefully go out and say thanks to them and play well.”

“The PGA is an amazing event – the history of winners there is Australia’s finest and I’d certainly like to put my name on that trophy.”

With tournament planning now well underway, the PGA says it intends to launch a number of new initiatives in the coming months with Adam’s new wardrobe addition, the green jacket, at front of mind.

While details are still to be confirmed, the PGA says it wants to ensure the public has adequate opportunity to celebrate Adam’s latest and greatest achievement.

“The significance of Adam’s victory is immense and we’re very excited to welcome him home to the Gold Coast,” said PGA CEO Brian Thorburn.

“To have Adam contend our Championship for its return to the Gold Coast is a wonderful opportunity, and we’re sure the fans will come out in their thousands to congratulate Scotty.”
