Past champions to shine at 100th Emirates Australian Open

The Emirates Australian Open celebrates a magical milestone this November – its 100th edition.

To recognise the landmark occasion, the national championship will pay homage to the legendary moments and players who have, through their memorable deeds, made the Stonehaven Cup one of golf’s most sought prizes.

Many past champions will be recognised at specific functions throughout the week, including a ceremonial tee shot celebration not unlike those seen at the Masters and Open Championship.

The annual Tuesday night gala cocktail party will also recognise the tournament’s rich heritage and several of its past champions.

Defending champion and world No.2 Jordan Spieth and former champ Adam Scott are already confirmed to headline the 100th Australian Open at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney.

And with the launch of the 100th edition Open logo and new slogan “Engraved in history”, it’s the perfect time to salute many of the champions who’ve made the Stonehaven Cup honour roll right at home with any in world golf.

Behind The Open Championship and the national titles of the United States, Canada and South Africa, the Australian Open is the oldest continuous tournament in the world having run since 1904 with breaks only for World War I and World War II.

More details of the week’s events will be made as we approach the Emirates Australian Open, to be held from November 26-29.

The 2015 Emirates Australian Open will be played at The Australian Golf Club from November 26-29.

The Emirates Australian Open is a flagship tournament on the PGA Tour of Australasia. The winner will receive a minimum of 32 Official World Golf Ranking points.

The event will be telecast for all four days on Channel 7.
