Double Major winning Jordan Spieth will play alongside English drawcard Lee Westwood and fellow former champion Geoff Ogilvy in the marquee morning group for the first round of the Australian Open on Thursday.
He tees off at 7.05am AEDT as he looks to back up his runaway win last year.
Former Masters champion Adam Scott will hit off just after midday with countryman John Senden and big-hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts.
Veteran Peter Senior, fresh off his remarkable Australian Masters victory ...
It is 18 years since a then relatively unknown Englishman pulled the Australian Open victory rug out from under the feet of Australia’s greatest-ever golfer and the then World No. 1 ranked Greg Norman.
Lee Westwood was just 24 years of age when he went head-to-head with Norman over four extra play-off holes to win the coveted Stonehaven Trophy in his second appearance in Australia’s premier event.
There was first stunned silence before genuine applause for the Worksop-born Westwood whose victory ...
Jordan Speith, unlike fellow Masters and Australian Open champion Adam Scott, is already warming at the thought of walking onto among the USA Team at next August’s Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.
Scott has been very out-spoken and not at all interested in competing in the Olympic Games.
In contrast Speith, who is Sydney for this week’s 100th Australian Open, seemingly is counting the days to the Summer Games and golf’s return to the Olympic arena since 1924.
World No. 1 Jordan Speith admits it will be difficult to repeat the success in 2016 he’s enjoyed in the past twelve months.

It was his victory on the same golf course a year ago, and capped by a blistering final round course record setting 63, that kick-stated a run of remarkable success for the quietly-spoken Texan.
The Dallas-born Speith then went onto to win the following week’s Tiger Woods ...
Shane Lowry knows all too well a good showing in the EurAsia Cup could lead to him also representing Europe in the Ryder Cup.

The 10-man European Team has been chosen among the leading place-getters after Sunday’s conclusion to the Race to Dubai.
However making themselves unavailable is the likes of ...
Peter Senior has shown that age is no barrier winning the UNIQLO Masters at Huntingdale Golf Club.

Playing solid golf all week, Senior entered the final day tied third alongside Michael Sim, John Senden and Matthew Guyatt.
Right from his first tee shot Senior looked the man to beat, opening ...
Rory McIlroy started out firing on all eight cylinders but was left fuming missing a short closing hole birdie he’s now hoping will not cost him a double DP World Tour Championship and Race to Dubai victory toast.
McIlroy hurled his putter into his bag after horribly missing the four-footer and despite posting a score of 65, and his lowest in 27 rounds of the Jumeirah Estates course.
It was McIlroy’s second lowest score of his injury interrupted season after signing for a 64 earlier in the year, ...
