Scott lining up for Coolum

AND the stars keep coming. Adam Scott, Robert Allenby, Geoff Ogilvy, Aaron Baddeley and John Senden were confirmed yesterday as starters for this year's Australian PGA Championship at Coolum.

The quintet add to the line-up which already includes Greg Norman, US Masters runner-up Jason Day, British Open winner Darren Clarke and US star Bubba Watson.

While Scott, Allenby and Ogilvy have been frequent visitors to the season-ending event in recent years, it will be Baddeley's first appearance at Hyatt Regency Coolum since 2002 when he placed sixth.

Scott said he wanted to cap a successful 2011 - which included a victory at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational - by a Coolum win.

"Winning at home in Queensland has always been on my list of things I want to achieve in my career and with the way I'm playing at the moment hopefully this could be my year for the PGA," he said.

"I know the Coolum course well and I've played there nearly every year, but I just haven't been firing when it counted."
