World No.5 Adam Scott has confirmed he will play in the Australian PGA Championships at the Hyatt Regency Coolum later this year. The 27-year-old, who was born in Queensland, said he was looking forward to returning to Australia to play one of the premier tournaments on the Australasian tour. “I&aposm thrilled to be able to return to the Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship again in 2007 and support Australian golf,” Scott said. “I love coming home to Queensland to play in front of friends and family, and the PGA Championship always provides a great atmosphere.” The 2006 PGA ended in dramatic circumstances, after Nick O&aposHern chipped in from a greenside bunker to defeat Peter Lonard in a playoff after the pair were tied at 22-under-par after 72 holes. The PGA&aposs General Manager of Commercial and Business Marketing John Dunlop, said the inclusion of Scott in the field would ensure fans are treated to some world-class golf on Australian shores. “We are always happy to welcome Adam back to the Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship,” Dunlop said. “I know the crowds will once again come out in force to support him, and this year&aposs event will no doubt build on the success of the 2006 event.” The tournament will be held from December 6-9, with the Australian Open at the Australian Golf Club to be played the following week.
