Premier Campbell Newman has congratulated Queenslander Adam Scott on his historic win in the US Masters this morning.
Adam became the first Australian to win one of the world’s most coveted golf tournaments.
“To win one of the world’s most famous tournaments in a play-off is a fantastic achievement. His win will ensure that many Queenslanders start the week with a smile on their face.” Premier Newman said.
“His idol was another Queenslander, Greg Norman. For Adam to win the ‘Green Jacket’ is an achievement not even the great Greg Norman could achieve.”
“I would also like to acknowledge the great golf played by Jason Day, another Queenslander. To have two people from this great state in the top three positions at the US Masters is unbelievable.”
“On behalf of all Queenslanders, I would like to congratulate these two great golfers.” Premier Newman said.
