Australasian PGA Tour | 2010 Australian Masters | General | 09 Jun 2010
It has been confirmed that Tiger Woods will return to Melbourne in November to defend the JBWere Masters.
This year’s JBWere Masters will witness one of the greatest fields ever assembled for a tournament in Australia with the defending champion joining international stars Sergio Garcia (Spain) and Camilo Villegas (Colombia) along with the 2006 US Open Champion, Geoff Ogilvy.
It reinforces Victoria’s proud history of staging major sporting events which earlier this year saw Melbourne awarded the Ultimate Sports City for the third year in a row
On his forthcoming trip to Australia, Tiger Woods commented: “I am pleased to be able to return to Melbourne to defend the JBWere Masters. The Australian galleries made last year’s event a great experience for all the players and I look forward to playing at The Victoria Golf Club in November.”
Last year’s JBWere Masters set a new benchmark for Australian golf with record crowds and television audiences and delivered in excess of $34 million to the Victorian economy.
The 2010 JBWere Masters will again be broadcast on Channel Nine and FOX SPORTS and will be played at The Victoria Golf Club from 11 – 14 November.
