US Masters and US Open champion Jordan Spieth will be coming back to Australia.
Two-time major winner Jordan Spieth has confirmed that he will be back in Australia at the end of the year to defend his Australian Open title.
From the official Golf Australia media release:
I’m absolutely thrilled to return to Sydney,” said Spieth, who parlayed his Australian success into a string of great results, including his record-breaking run to win the green jacket at The Masters in April.
“I had a fantastic time in Australia. I can’t wait to come back and hopefully defend the Stonehaven Cup.”
He is just the sixth player in history to hold both the Masters and US Open titles at one time, and just the second – behind the immortal Jack Nicklaus – to hold the Masters, US Open and Australian Open titles at one point. Nicklaus achieved this in 1972 after he won the Australian Open at Royal Hobart in 1971.
Spieth was sensational last year and after winning the US Masters and US Open this year, it’s a no-brainer to grab yourself a ticket and get to Sydney to watch him in the flesh.
