ROYAL SYDNEY SNARES 2016 OPEN THE 2016 Emirates Australian Open will be played at Royal Sydney Golf Club. The storied Rose Bay venue will host the national championship for the 15th time at a date yet to be fixed. Golf Australia chief executive Stephen Pitt was delighted to return to Royal Sydney, which most recently hosted the Open in 2013 when Rory McIlroy beat Adam Scott in a final-day shootout. “Royal Sydney is one of Australia’s most revered clubs and we are excited to return to one of the great championship venues in the country,” Pitt said. “The atmosphere at Royal Sydney in 2013 was extraordinary, as it has been at The Australian these past two years, so we are looking forward to heading back next year.” Golf Australia, along with partners the New South Wales Government and its tourism and events agency Destination NSW and event commercial partner Lagardère Sports (formerly World Sport Group), announced a deal last month that keeps the Australian Open in Sydney for the next eight years, with the scope for two “release years” in that period. MORE> AUSSIE TRIO HEADING TO TROON AUSTRALIAN Open champion Matt Jones has qualified for the 145th Open Championship at Royal Troon as a result of his breakthrough victory. He will be joined in Scotland in July by Rod Pampling and Nick Cullen, who both made barnstorming finishes in the final round to each grab one of the remaining two Open qualifying spots for the year’s third major. MORE> ____ ______ ______ ______ ______ ______ _ SCRIVENER’S SOLID START WA's Jason Scrivener has got his second European Tour season off to a flying start with a good finish at the first event of the 2016 season – the Alfred Dunhill Championship. The 26-year-old, who grabbed a Tour card at Q-School only 10 days ago, had rounds of 69- 70-72-73 to finish four-under and tied 27th. He came close to retaining his card in his rookie season, with a fighting Hong Kong Open finish leaving him just short of earning enough to be top 110 on the Euro Order of Merit. He has made the long flight from South Africa to the Gold Coast to tee it up in the Australian PGA Championship this week.
