Woods to defend title at Australian Masters


ORLANDO, Florida – Tiger Woods will return Down Under to defend his title at the Australian Masters.

Woods announced on his website Tuesday that he will play the Australian Masters on Nov. 11-14. He won the event last year at Kingston Heath for his 82nd title worldwide. It also gave him a victory on every continent in which golf is played.

The Australian Masters will be played this year at Victoria Golf Club.

Woods closed with a 68 for a two-shot victory over Greg Chalmers before record crowds. It was the last tournament he played before his Nov. 27 car accident that led to revelations of his sexual affairs.
