SYDNEY (AP) - Masters champion Adam Scott has entered November’s Australian Open at Royal Sydney, meaning he’ll play at least three times in four weeks Down Under _ and possibly all four.
Scott’s appearance at the Australian Open from Nov. 28-Dec. 1 was announced Thursday. He’ll also play the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast _ his hometown _ from Nov. 7-10. He then defends his Australian Masters title the following week at Royal Melbourne.
The World Cup is scheduled the week following the Australian Masters _ from Nov. 21-24, also at Royal Melbourne _ and Scott could represent Australia as the country’s highest-ranked player. The format used there will be similar to that used when golf makes its return to the Olympics in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
