Global golf phenomenon Jordan Spieth returns to defend his title November 25-28 at the 100th edition of the Australian Open. The Dallas-born 22-year-old will face top-flight opponents including Adam Scott, the Australian who was ranked No. 1 in the world during mid-2014, and Irish veteran Darren Clarke, winner of the 2011 Open Championship at England’s Royal St. George’s.

The Australian Open can be seen live beginning at 8:00 PM ET on November 25 on ONE World Sports, America’s Network for Global Sports. ONE World Sports will present 18-hole coverage of the Open, including all rounds, and will air a highlight show the following morning to reflect the previous day’s coverage.

Spieth recently regained the top spot in the official world rankings with a seventh-place finish at the HSBC event in Shanghai, displacing Australia's Jason Day, with whom he’s traded off for the No. 1 spot. Spieth’s dominant play in the 2014 Australian Open catapulted him to the top ranks with a final-round 63, propelling him to wins in the Masters and the US Open.

The Australian Open, played since 1904, has been a traditional annual stop for many of the biggest names in global golf. Recent competitors have included Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar, and competitors in recent decades have included such names as Brad Faxon, Mark Calcavecchia, Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Spieth is the only golfer besides Woods to earn multiple U.S. Junior Amateur titles. US Open, British Open and PGA champion Rory McIlroy won the Australian Open in 2013. Golf legends Greg Norman and Gary Player have won both the Australian Open and the Australian PGA Championship, whose 2014 winner was Greg Chalmers. Other top names playing the OneAsia Tour in recent years have included Adam Scott, Jason Day, John Daly and Vijay Singh.
