Former world No.1 golfer Vijay Singh and Zimbabwean star Brendon de Jonge have added their names to a classy field for next month’s Australian Masters.
The pair join US Masters winner Adam Scott, the defending champion, and American world No.8 Matt Kuchar plus top tier Australians Geoff Ogilvy and Marc Leishman in the November 14-17 tournament at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.
The 50-year old Singh was a regular in Australian tournaments more than 20 years before kicking off his career on the US PGA Tour.
In 1998, he was a member of the team that produced what is still the only Presidents Cup win for the Internationals at Royal Melbourne.
Scott and Kuchar are among players who will be back at Royal Melbourne again the following week to represent their countries in the World Cup of Golf tournament, with Scott joined by countryman Jason Day.
Four of the top 10 players on the Asian Tour will also be vying for Australian Masters victory, including Australia’s Scott Hend and India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar and Anirban Lahiri, as well as Perth International winner Jin Jeong from South Korea.
