SYDNEY (AP) — American Jordan Spieth will have an opportunity to defend his Australian Open title next year on the same course he won the tournament on three weeks ago.

Golf Australia said Friday that The Australian Golf Club in Sydney will host the tournament for the 19th time. Dates for the event, as well as the country's other 'majors' — the Masters and PGA — have not been determined for 2015.

Spieth's six-stroke win came on his first visit to Australia and the 21-year-old, who shot a final-round 63, indicated after his victory that he hoped to return next year to defend his title.
