Scott and another mystery golfer to join McIlroy and Day at 2014 Australian Open

Adam Scott and one more top-15 ranked golfer will be teeing it up in the 2014 Australian Open.

Adam Scott is the latest big name to confirm his appearance at the 2014 Australian Open at The Australian Golf Club in November 27 – 30.

The world’s number two ranked golfer has expressed his desire to make amends for a poor final hole at last year’s Australian Open that saw Scott lose to Rory McIlroy by one shot.

“I finished such an amazing month on such a disappointing note, and the result just gutted me for weeks in not winning the Australian Open,” Scott told Bernie McGuire from Golf by Tour Miss overnight.

“I will be going back there with a chip on my shoulder. I don’t often get upset but I was really mad at myself because I was absolutely gutted in not being able to win last year.”

“So I will be playing at The Australian Club with real intent to make amends for what happened at Royal Sydney,” Scott said.

Scott’s inclusion in the field means three of the top-10 players in the world will be playing in Sydney in November after Rory McIlroy and Jason Day confirmed their appearances at the Australian Open in the last few weeks.

Rumour has it that another player from the world’s top-15 will also be taking his place in the Australian Open field. That probably narrows it down to someone between the 10th and 15th ranked spot on the official world golf rankings (see below).

Tiger Woods is out for the rest of the year, which leaves us with four possibilities.

If I told you the player will most likely be one of golf’s young guns, who would be your pick?
