This year the tournament will revert to a 72-hole stroke-play format for the first time since 1999, contested as both a team and individual competition. In total, 34 countries will be represented – 26 of which that will feature two players, and, eight countries with just one player. While not an official Tour-sanctioned event, the tournament will offer Official World Golf Ranking points for the first time ever.

Sizzling Scott: Adam Scott will tee it up again this week in his native country looking for his third victory in as many weeks after recently capturing the Australian PGA Championship and the Australian Masters respectively . Following play this week, he will go for the “Australian Triple Crown” at next week’s Australian Open in Sydney.

Headlining the Field: Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell, Jason Day, Brendon de Jonge, Matteo Manassero, Vijay Singh, Jonas Blixt, Branden Grace and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
