The Australian to host Australian Open

SYDNEY (AP) - Jack Nicklaus has announced that The Australian Golf Club, where he won three of his six Australian Opens, will host the country's national championship in 2014 following a redesign of the layout by the 18-time major champion.

The course hosted the first Australian Open in 2004 and it was last played there in 2007 when it was won by Craig Parry.

Nicklaus, who won the Australian Open at The Australian in 1975, 1976 and 1978, also helped redesign the course between 1977 and 1980, adding length and water hazards.

This year's Australian Open will be played for the fourth consecutive year at The Lakes, also in Sydney, at a date to be determined in December. Peter Senior is the defending champion.
