SYDNEY (AP) - Greg Norman will play the Australian Open for the next three years, including this year's event at New South Wales Golf Club in Sydney.
Tournament officials made the announcement about Norman on Monday.
The 54-year-old Norman is a five-time Australian Open champion. He last played the Australian Open two years ago, finishing tied for 26th behind winner John Senden at Royal Sydney.
The former No. 1-ranked Norman has been in Australia for about three weeks with his wife, former tennis star Chris Evert.
The two toured bushfire areas of Victoria state on Sunday, their first wedding anniversary, and spoke to some of the survivors of the Feb. 7 fires that killed 173 people and destroyed more than 2,000 homes.
