Stonehaven Cup in Scott's sights

ADAM Scott is making plans to cap off a sensational year with victory in one of Australian golf's biggest tournaments - the Australian Open.

After recently claiming the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and finishing in seventh spot in the U.S PGA Championship, Scott is re-affirming his status as one of Australia's great golfing exports.

And now the 31-year-old has set his sights on The Lakes and claiming the Australian Open for the second time in his career.

“It’s going to be huge,” the world no. 7 said.

"To claim the Stonehaven Cup in one of the biggest years of Australian golf would be an unbelievable achievement."

Abandoning his defence of the Singapore Open to contend at the Australian Open, Scott will be hoping to claim the Stonehaven Cup before launching a likely Presidents Cup salvo.

However, Scott said success at The Lakes and Royal Melbourne Golf Club would depend on Australian golfing fans.

"There is a real buzz about the Australian Open and the entire Australian summer and I hope all fans get out and support us at The Lakes,” said Scott.

Confirmed today, Scott joins a star studded Australian Open field including the likes of Tiger Woods, Presidents Cup Captains Fred Couples and Greg Norman, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, defending Champion Geoff Ogilvy as well as Australian young gun Jason Day.
