After an intense four rounds and a play off hole at the Royal Sydney Golf Club, Jordan Spieth emerged victorious at the Emirates Australian Open on Sunday for a second time.

Jordan finished first after achieving a final round of 69, finishing 12 under par for the tournament. Ashley Hall and Cameron Smith from Australia finished tied second following the play off.

“Emirates would like to extend our congratulations to Jordan on adding his name once again to the Stonehaven Cup. The past four days have seen some of the best in the world play, in what can only be described as a world-class game of golf,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ Divisional Vice President for Australasia.

Spieth was declared the winner of the Emirates Australian Open for a second time, following his win in 2014 and being named runner up in 2015.

“We would also like to offer our gratitude as we celebrate our sixth year as the naming rights sponsor of the Emirates Australian Open during its 101st year. Our relationship with the Open is incredibly important to us, and allows us to connect not only with the golfing community but also with Australians from all walks of life,” added Barry Brown.

Guests enjoyed uninterrupted views of the 18th hole and the opportunity to get up close to some of the biggest stars in golf. The 10th hole was 380-meters-long, in celebration of Emirates’ flagship superjumbo A380 aircraft.

Emirates is the Official Airline for 21 golfing tournaments worldwide, including the Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast from 1 December until 4 December.

The airline also supports a range of sporting, cultural and arts organisations within Australia, including the Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras, Adelaide Festival, Collingwood Football Club, the Emirates Melbourne Cup and the Emirates Australian Open Tennis series.
