Having won the 2013 Australian PGA Championship, 2013 Talisker Australian Masters, the teams event component of the 2013 World Cup partnered with Jason Day and then narrowly missing out on claiming the 2013 Triple Crown with a second place finish at the 2013 Emirates Australian Open, Adam is looking forward to returning to Australia to compete on home soil. “It was an amazing four weeks playing in Australia last year. The support I received was incredible and I am really looking forward to returning this year. Having almost won the Triple Crown last year, I am very keen to see if I can go one better this year,” said Adam. Joining Scott in the Emirates Australian Open field is World Number 9 Jason Day. The 26 year-old Queenslander won his second PGA Tour title, the WGC – Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona in February and finished fourth at the U.S Open in June. “It’s always good to come home to Australia and I’m excited to be able to play at the Emirates Australian Open again in November,” Day said. Golf Australia CEO Stephen Pitt said he was delighted to see Day return to Australia. “It was great to have Jason back at the Open last year and we’re really looking forward to seeing him take on The Australian Golf Club in November. It would be great to see him right in contention to win his national Open for the first time,” Pitt said. One of world golf ’s rising stars, Jordan Spieth, will also head to Sydney in November. The 21 year-old American has taken the golf world by storm in the last 18 months after his breakthrough win on the PGA Tour at the John Deere Classic in 2013. By doing so, Spieth became the youngest player to win on the PGA Tour in 82 years. “I can’t wait to get down to Australia at the end of the year and be part of such a terrific field in Sydney,” Spieth said. “Jordan is an excitement machine,” adds Pitt. “He has consistently performed on the PGA Tour which has allowed him to become the youngest American player ever to make it inside the world Top-10. Together with World Number 1 Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Jason Day, everything is in place for a terrific week at the Emirates Australian Open.” Rounding out the latest announcements, former US Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy has confirmed that he will return to Australia to play the Perth International. The 37-year-old has had a strong year on the PGA TOUR, winning the Barracuda Championship – his first TOUR win since 2010. He has eight PGA TOUR and four European Tour wins under his belt, including three World Golf Championships. Following his win in Reno, Ogilvy said he was looking forward to continuing his strong form in Perth. “I’ve been putting in a lot of practice to get to my current form, and I’m hoping I can continue to play well over the next few months,” he said. “I have a strong affiliation with Lake Karrinyup Country Club as my business partner, Mike Clayton, was responsible for remodelling the course layout in 2007. The course now has plenty of challenges, I’m sure Mike will be putting pressure on me to perform well! Already announced to join Ogilvy for the tournament are world number 22 Victor Dubuisson, five-time European Tour Champion Brett Rumford, defending Perth International champion Korean born Jin Jeong, 2011 Masters Champion Charl Schwartzel, American Jason Dufner and Australian Steven Bowditch who won his maiden PGA TOUR title in April at the Texas Open. Lake Karrinyup Country Club is widely acknowledged as Western Australia’s premier private golf club and has been regularly rated as one of the top ten golf courses in Australia.
