The world’s sixth ranked golfer Matt Kuchar has confirmed his participation in the Australian Masters, scheduled to take place between the 14th of November and the 17th of November at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club.
The American champion began his career as a professional golfer back in 2000 at the Australian Masters and he has a lot of emotional connect with the event and has confirmed that he will return to the event this year and for the World Cup which will tee off at the same course the following weekend. Kuchar has won two titles on the PGA Tour this year including a title on the World Golf Championship World Match Play and is the latest name in a list that contains some of the biggest names in the golfing world.
Matt Kuchar will be joined on the field by the US Masters champion Adam Scott, the first Australian to win the title as well as Jarrod Lyle, who will return to professional tournament golf after suffering from leukemia and beating the disease twice.
The lineup of superstars will be rounded up by the presence of world number three Rory McIlroy and his fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell. Kuchar is one of the most affable players on the Tour and is liked by all and sundry for his immensely humorous nature and his presence will surely grace the fans around the course.
A part of the President’s Cup winning team for the United States that won at the Royal Melbourne back in 2011, Matt Kuchar expressed his delight at being able to return to the country and added that playing in the country has been one of the best experiences for him throughout his career and mentioned that he is relishing the chance to return there and compete with some great players.
