MATT KUCHAR will join Adam Scott at the 2013 Australian Masters at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in November, with tickets now on sale.

The popular American golfer and current world number six played Royal Melbourne during the last Presidents Cup and is glad to return to the iconic venue.

“I have always enjoyed playing in Australia and especially on the Melbourne sandbelt,” Kuchar said this week.

“The Royal Melbourne Golf Club is one of the world’s great courses and was a fantastic venue for The Presidents Cup 2011.  I am really looking forward to playing the Talisker Masters and bringing my family to Melbourne in November.”

Jarrod Lyle returns

The Masters will also mark the return to competitive play of Jarrod Lyle after his 18 month battle with leukaemia.  Jarrod’s story is truly inspirational and after his diagnosis last year he received overwhelming support from his fellow players who wore the “Leuk the Duck” logo on their headwear during tournaments.

(Leuk the Duck” is a logo of the children’s cancer charity, Challenge, who have been appointed as an official charity of this year’s event.  Titleist caps with the “Leuk the Duck” logo will be sold through the Official Merchandiser, Sporte-Leisure, with all proceeds going to Challenge.)

David Rollo, Vice President-Director of Golf for IMG Australia, the event organiser, said, “We are delighted to welcome two of the finest players in the world in Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar to play this year’s Talisker Masters and equally we know Jarrod Lyle will receive a very warm welcome from his fellow players and golf fans in his return to competition.

“The support of our partners is truly valued, especially that of the Victorian Government and Talisker who we welcome back as our title sponsor for a second year.  We also look forward to further international player announcements in the coming months.”

The Seven Network will broadcast live national coverage of the Talisker Masters on all four days from 12.30pm-5.30 pm.

Tickets to the 2013 Talisker Masters, November 14 – 17, go on sale today and will be available via the event website here  with prices starting from $29.
