Victorian Stuart Appleby takes out Australian Masters
Earlier this month I was thrilled to present our very own Stuart Appleby with the Australian Masters trophy.
The Australian Masters golf tournament, held at Victoria Golf Club from 11 to 14 November, was a huge success drawing the second biggest crowd in the event�s 32 year history.
This year fans had the opportunity to witness one of the strongest playing fields ever assembled in an Australian golf tournament, with Tiger Woods (USA), Sergio Garcia (Spain), Camilo Villegas (Colombia) and Australia�s No. 1 player Robert Allenby and Geoff Ogilvy all lining up to contest for the coveted gold jacket.
Hosting the Australian Masters further demonstrates Victoria�s reputation for delivering outstanding golf events and complements our securing of the Presidents Cup in November 2011. Melbourne will be the first city outside of the United States to host the Presidents Cup for a second time.
