Our branding this year for the 100th playing of the Australian Open will show the words “Engraved in history” paying homage to the rich past of our event.
There have been some golden eras for the Australian Open, perhaps most noticeably when across two decades the Stonehaven Cup was basically shared between Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Peter Thomson.
And most of the great champions of golf have won the Australian Open.
Apart from those three immortal names, there’s Greg Norman, Bobby Locke, Gene Sarazen, Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer – it’s effectively the who’s who of golf.
More recently there’s Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth in the past two years, along with our own Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy – all major championship winners – and the list goes on and on.
In fact, there have been 15 people who’ve held aloft the Stonehaven Cup who have won major championships during their careers.
In short, the global recognition of the Australian Open – past and present – is incredible, especially with new world No.1 Spieth back to defend and Scott already committed to the field.
