Justin Rose confirmed to play Australian Open.
Another huge boost for the upcoming Australian summer of golf with the announcement today that current world number five Justin Rose has committed to play in the Australian Open. Rose will join Tom Watson, Adam Scott, Geoff Ogilvy and Greg Chalmers who are also already committed to play the event at The Lakes in December.
Fresh off his team’s victory at the Ryder Cup in which he played a starring role, Rose is excited about returning to Australia.
“I’m looking forward to coming to Sydney for my first trip back to Australia in a few years and I’ve always enjoyed it,” Rose said. “This will be my Australian Open debut and the tournament has a history of wonderful champions and I hope I can add my name to that list in December.”
Rose has had success previously in Australia. He won the Australian Masters at Huntingdale back in 2006 when he beat Greg Chalmers and Richard Green by two shots.
On the back of the news that Channel Seven will be broadcasting the tournament, it’s been a great week for Australian Open organisers and great for Australian golf.
