Adam Scott Going For Aussie Hat-trick

Adam Scott is looking to add the Australian Open to his list of achievements this year when he tees it up tomorrow at the Royal Sydney Golf Club.

This could be his third win in his last four outings, he’s been triumphant at the Australian PGA Championship and the Australian Masters and came third last week at the World Cup of Golf in Melbourne, but won the team event with Jason Day.

Scott is looking to become only the second player to get a hat-trick of titles in Australia in a season.

The only other player to do this is Robert Allenby but Scott joked he has received no advice from the veteran.

The course looks to be in great condition and it’s going to be tough competition out there, should be another great week of golf!


Senden Leads By Two Over Rose In Australia

The Australian Open got under way today and it was the home favourite John Senden who is flying high at the top of the leaderboard after he shot a superb opening 66 to finish two shots clear of the chasing pack.

Senden from Queensland was out early and made the most of easy conditions and the six under target proved to be unassailable as nobody could catch him in the afternoon.

It wasn’t all plain sailing for Senden though, he started with a birdie but then  had back-to-back bogeys at the second and third holes, but he recovered in fine style carding seven birdies in eleven holes from the 7th to the 17th which left him sitting on top of the pack.

Justin Rose is flying the British flag shooting a 68 finishing two back of Senden. He is level with Gareth Paddison, Richard Green, Kim Felton and Australian Brendan Jones.

Come on Justin finish the season in style!
