Australia’s highest ranked golfer, world #5 Adam Scott is the latest player to confirm his entry in the 2006 Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship to be played at the Hyatt Regency Coolum in December.
The 26-year old Queenslander successfully defended his Singapore Open title recently, defeating Ernie Els in a play-off to score his first win for the 2006 season and add another international championship to his long list of accomplishments. He also finished T8 at the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in July and T3 at last month’s US PGA Championship, his best ever finish in a Major.
“The Australian PGA is always one of the most relaxed and enjoyable events we play, and I’m looking forward to returning to Queensland,” Scott said. “It’s great to play an event where my family and friends can be on hand to watch,” he added.
“Adam is a world class player and we’re extremely grateful for his continued support of our championship and I know the local Queensland crowd will be out in force to support him.” said PGA Chief Executive Officer Max Garske. “Our field is shaping up to be the best in years and it will be a great opportunity for the public to come and see first hand why so many Australian players are dominating tours around the world.”
Scott joins current US Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy in the field alongside defending champion Robert Allenby and Stuart Appleby.
The Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship will be played 7-10 December at the Hyatt Regency Coolum on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
