    Golfer Adam Scott will join an all-star cast when he returns to the Australian Open.

Adam Scott will join an all-star cast when he returns to the Australian Open this year.

Scott recommitted to the tournament for 2016 again on Thursday, joining the likes of World No.1 Jason Day and former winner Jordan Spieth - who have already signed on to play at Royal Sydney from November 17.

"The Australian Open has always been a tournament I value highly, Sydney is a great city and I have fond memories of Royal Sydney as a great venue for championship golf," Scott said.

"I am really looking forward to competing to win my second Stonehaven Cup in November."

Scott won the Open in 2009 by five shots, and finished second to fellow Australian Matt Jones last year.

"Adam has been a regular at his national championship over the years and he always seems to bring his A-game," Golf Australia CEO Stephen Pitt said.

"We look forward to seeing him play again and we know that the crowds appreciate not only his golf, but the way he carries himself.

"He's an immensely popular figure and a great ambassador for the sport in this country."

Scott will also return to play in his hometown event, the Australian PGA after skipping last year's event.

"The support I receive from the Aussie golf fans makes for a special week, especially when I am playing in my hometown, the Gold Coast," Scott said.

The 36-year-old won the tournament in 2013, before losing a seven-hole playoff with Greg Chalmers in 2014 to finish runner-up.
