Welcome to the 2012 Talisker Masters to be held at Kingston Heath Golf Club.
First held in 1979 at Huntingdale Golf Club in Melbourne, the Masters has consistently attracted the best players from across the globe and the strongest support in terms of spectator and television audiences. The annual presentation of the gold jacket to the champion has become a notable tradition in Australian golf.
Greg Norman became synonymous with the tournament in the earlier years amassing six gold jackets in an astonishing stretch from 1981 to 1990. The event has also given several Australian players the chance to launch themselves onto the international stage after breakthrough victories at Huntingdale. They include the likes of Ian Baker-Finch, Craig Parry, Richard Green, Peter Lonard and Aaron Baddeley. The prestigious past champions roll of honour reads as a who's who of the golfing world.
In 2008, IMG entered into a long term strategic partnership with the Victoria Government to build the annual Australian Masters into a "Best in Class" event that provides for a highpoint on the Australian golfing calendar.
The 2009 Masters saw the start of the venue rotation policy, with the tournament moving to Kingston Heath Golf Club, and set a new high watermark for Australian golf; attracting record crowds and television audiences. These milestone results and the tournament champion, Tiger Woods, have only served to raise the bar and assist the Masters enhance its reputation as one of the world's great golfing events and one of Asia-Pacific's most acclaimed sporting traditions.
