Van de Velde heading for Australia

Frenchman Jean Van de Velde, who threw away the Open Championship earlier this year has been confirmed as appearing in November's Australian Open at Royal Sydney.

Van de Velde has played the Australian Open before but events at Carnoustie in July earned him minor drawcard status this time, this time he earns an appearance fee, though not nearly in the same bracket as leading attraction, world No 3, Colin Montgomery.

Five-time champion Greg Norman is playing along with Denmark's Thomas Bjorn while Padraig Harrington and Nick Faldo are other possibles.
