I LOVED this moment on the first hole of the dramatic final round of the 2013 Australian Open with Adam Scott holding the flag for Rory McIlroy as he putted.

Their caddies were obviously off doing other important caddie stuff as huge galleries watched what could have been any two golfers playing in their regular Saturday competition.

This photo is one of 80 odd in our now completed Emirates Australian Open photo gallery.

The photos, which can be easily viewed as a full screen slideshow, tell their own story of what was a fascinating event.
