Adam Scott to be busy Down Under in November

SYDNEY (AP) -- Masters champion Adam Scott has entered November's Australian Open at Royal Sydney, meaning he'll play at least three times in four weeks Down Under -- and possibly all four.

Scott's appearance at the Australian Open from Nov. 28-Dec. 1 was announced Thursday. He'll also play the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast -- his hometown -- from Nov. 7-10. He then defends his Australian Masters title the following week at Royal Melbourne.

The World Cup is scheduled the week following the Australian Masters -- from Nov. 21-24, also at Royal Melbourne -- and Scott could represent Australia as the country's highest-ranked player. The format used there will be similar to that used when golf makes its return to the Olympics in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
