This time of the year was meant to be all about the Masters for Adam Scott, but instead he'll tee it up in the sleepy Queensland Sunshine Coast town of Maleny for a Friday round broadcast live on his Instagram account.
The World No.6 won on the Gold Coast in December at the Australian PGA Championship before breaking a four-year PGA Tour title drought with victory at the Genesis Invitational in February.
But the coronavirus pandemic's arrival put Scott's promising bid for a second Masters green jacket on hold, and allowed for a trip home to Queensland, where golf clubs have been allowed to remain open despite the country's isolation measures.
Scott has been a regular at the picturesque Maleny course run by good friend and PGA professional Wayne Perske and the pair will go head-to-head over nine holes in a rare live broadcast sporting encounter from 8am on Friday (Brisbane time).
Join me on IG Live Friday 1st May 08:00 (AEST) for NINE HOLES with a mate at Maleny Golf Club a hidden gem on Queenslands Sunshine Coast. Will be chatting about the story of the club and other things golf. Comment below with any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them on the day!
Labelling the course a "hidden gem", Scott encouraged followers to send questions to his Instagram @adamscottofficial during the round, while he also plans to tell the story of the club among other golfing tales during the round.
Former Tour pro Perske, 45, might have his hands full if Scott's form is anything to go by, with footage of him nailing a 268 metres 2-iron from Maleny's 10th tee to the 12th green surfacing earlier this month.
"It went 100 storeys in the air and just dropped down beside the hole," Perske told the PGA of Australia.
"All the people here are on such a high because they never thought something like that would happen.
"He's our honorary Touring Professional at the moment and the Instagram Live match is going to be huge for Maleny Golf Club.
"I think we'll see him up here fairly often between now and when he goes back to the States, so he might do something even more special by then."
