Not since Greg Norman in the early 1990’s has Australia been able to boast a world number one golfer. Adam Scott has shown that he is well deserved of the title with consistent performances week in and week out.
Many had picked Scott to defend his US Masters title or to challenge strongly for the US and British Open crowns. Although his results at the first three majors of the year have been below expectations, there are signs that his game will only grow stronger and that he will be a hard man to knock off the top pedestal.
With Jason Day the current world number seven and John Senden, Matt Jones, Steven Bowditch and Scott all having won on the USPGA tour this year, the popularity of golf in Australia is once again on the rise. The success of amateurs Oliver Goss and Min Jee Lee (both from Western Australia) are also helping to contribute to an increase in junior golfers taking up the game.
Australia is blessed with weather conditions that allow golf to be played all year round. Within each state are courses which provide golf travellers constant variety of layout and playing conditions. Combine that with everything else that Australia has to offer away from the course and there are very few places that can compare with a golfing getaway Down Under.
