While the dates for this year’s Emirates Australian Open are still to be released, organisers have confirmed they are pursuing a number of high profile players for this year’s tournament.

“Last year’s Emirates Australian Open exceeded all expectations resulting in record crowds, television figures and outstanding returns for sponsors. Our focus is now on ensuring we can deliver an equal if not better championship to all our tournament partners for 2012 and beyond,” added Pitt.

The Emirates Australian Open is one of Australia’s pre-eminent sporting events and the oldest tournament on the PGA Tour of Australasia schedule.

Former winners of the championship include Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Arnold Palmer as well as Australians Peter Thomson, Kel Nagle, Greg Norman, Adam Scott, Geoff Ogilvy and most recently Greg Chalmers.
