SYDNEY, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- Australian golfer Adam Scott will head to Melbourne to defend his Australian Masters title this week after claiming the Australian PGA title on Sunday, local media reported on Monday.

The 33-year-old produced a great finish at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast to win his first Australian PGA Championship on Sunday, beating American Rickie Fowler by four shots.

Scott now has a chance of emulating Robert Allenby, who in 2005 achieved the triple crown of Australian golf by winning the PGA, Australian Masters and Australian Open in the same summer, Local media said.

"That would be an incredible way to end the year, but I think I am going to enjoy this for a couple of days before I think about playing next week and trying to win that and then maybe an Australian Open," Scott told reporters.

"I mean that would be incredible ... What Robert did was remarkable but he made it possible. I will be going for it, for sure."
