The tournament takes place between November 30 and December 3 and Scott, the world number 24, is particularly looking forward to taking on Sergio Garcia for the top prize.
“Sergio’s playing in my backyard and it’s going to be great fun as a competitor, but it’s also very exciting for the Australian PGA,” he said, as reported by the European Tour website.
“He’s a true superstar in the game of golf and having won his first major just creates that extra bit of buzz. The style of golf he plays is very appealing to people. For the true golf fans who want to come out and watch one of the best ball strikers to ever play, they are really going to enjoy that.
“Then for avid sports fans who like seeing some emotion, they are going to enjoy seeing that whether Sergio plays good, bad or indifferent."
He added: “For me personally it would be great to try and win the Kirkwood Cup again. Any time you win it’s fantastic, but if you have a little tussle with another top player as well it is really good.
“Hopefully I will have the home crowd on my side. It’s not often anyone gets to play in front of a home crowd; since the tournaments move to the Gold Coast, and then winning the Masters, the support I have received has been amazing.”
