“Competing in the Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast in front of a home crowd is always such a highlight for me,” said Scott.

“I really appreciate the local support and I am hoping that this year I can add my name to the Joe Kirkwood Cup for a second time.”

Scott and Garcia ensure the Australian PGA Championship will have its strongest field since moving to the Gold Coast.

A strong supporter of Australian golf and in particular the Australian PGA Championship, Adam Scott is always a fan favourite on home soil.

“Adam Scott is iconic to Australian sport, not just because of his Masters victory but because of his commitment to his Australian fans,” said Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia.

“Each year Adam comes home to compete and celebrate his international season with Australian sport fans. This year is no different and we are delighted to have him playing the Australian PGA Championship.”

“With the current Masters champion and Australia’s only Masters champion in the field, fans are in for a real treat at the Australian PGA Championship this year.”

General admission to the Australian PGA Championship is $25 when purchased at the gate or via Ticketmaster with children, 16 and under, granted free admission when attending with a paying adult.
