Tiger Making Tracks to the Australian Masters in November

World Number one Tiger Woods is on his way to Melbourne in November

Victorian Premier John Brumby has issued notice that the world number one golfer will play at the Kingston Heath course in the Australian Masters.

Mr Brumby said "We are delighted Tiger Woods has chosen to come to Melbourne, further cementing our position as the major events capital of the world,"

Woods is expected to command an appearance fee of around $US3 million and it will be Woods's third trip to Melbourne.

Mr Brumby said the visit would earn the state of Victoria millions of dollars in economic benefits that would easily cover Woods' fee.

"Some of the great golf courses in the world are right down there in Melbourne, that sand belt," Woods has said.
