Tom Watson to play in Australian Open

The ageless Tom Watson will be making the trip to Oz in almost three decades this November.

Watson will play in the Australian Open at The Lakes Golf Club in Sydney from Dec. 6-9, tournament organizers announced Friday. The eight-time major champion won the event in 1984 at Royal Melbourne.

Greg Chalmers is defending champion of the event.
