Two-time champion Adam Scott is heading to Huntingdale as the headline act at this year’s Australian Masters.
Scott, who fell short of a three-peat at last year’s event at Metropolitan, has been lured back to the sandbelt through his sponsor, Uniqlo, who will be the Masters major event partner.
Two-time winner on the PGA tour John Senden will also play at Huntingdale with South African great Ernie Els and President’s Cup team member Steven Bowditch for this year’s gold jacket.
The Masters is returning to Huntingdale for the first time since 2008, having toured the sandbelt since leaving its home of nearly 30 years.
Scott won back-to-back Masters in 2012-13 at Kingston Heath and Royal Melbourne before finishing second, just a single shot back, from winner Nick Cullen last year.
The tournament returns to Huntingdale, which has undergone a major transformation since the last event there, including the construction of a brand new $15 million clubhouse.
The Huntingdale layout has also had work done to restore it to the glory days which saw Aussie legend Greg Norman win six Masters titles.
A host of former champions including Rod Pampling and Stuart Appleby along with defending champ Nick Cullen are all set to play the Masters, which runs 19-22 November.
