SYDNEY - Rory McIlroy's defense of his Australian Open title began with a 2-under 69 on a cool, overcast and often drizzly morning at The Australian Golf Club.
After waiting his entire career to reach world No. 1, Adam Scott spent only 11 weeks at the top before Rory McIlroy came along.
Any mention of golf during the week of Thanksgiving used to be about the Skins Game.
Now it's hard not to think about Tiger Woods.
Adam Scott didn’t get his wish.
Tournament officials have decided to split up Scott and Rory McIlroy for the first two rounds of this week’s Australian Open in Sydney.
