The Australian Open is the pinnacle (pun intended) of golf in Australia and is held in the highest esteem by sports fans across the country. Over the course (pun intended) of its 100-plus year history, the Open has been contested and won not only by Australia’s, but some of the world’s greatest golfers of all time, including three of the game’s five immortals: Gene Sarazan, Gary Player and ‘The Golden Bear’ Jack Nicklaus.

More recently the tournament has been taken out by young guns Rory McIlroy and Jordan Speith, both of whom did it while ranked number one in the world, which says everything about the Open’s ability to attract top class international talent. And while it mightn’t be one of the official ‘majors’, plenty of player in the past, including Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus have considered it an unofficial fifth major championship. Arguably Australia’s greatest ever golfer, ‘The Great White Shark’ Greg Norman won the Stonehaven Cup five times.
