Back to back Australian Masters and Presidents Cup

The Presidents Cup is set to be played at Royal Melbourne on November 14-20, 2011 and there are plans to move the Australian Masters the week before, to make up the biggest two weeks in the history of Australian golf.

Greg Norman will be back to captain the International team who was part of the only previous victory for the International team at Royal Melbourne in 1998. Peter Thomson captained the side that year and which saw Tiger Woods beat Greg Norman in their singles match-up, 1up. 

Pacific Golfer is reporting that organisers of the Australian Open in Sydney are also considering moving their event to the week after the Presidents Cup in order to boost their field.

The tournament organisers would be mad not to try and lure more players to the Open and the Masters given the quality of golfers who will be on Australian soil. We should construct a few more events and see if we can extend the Australian golf summer through Christmas. 

Who wants to sponsor the Aussie Golfer Invitational? I think I’ll host it at Barnbougle Dunes.
