Ms McKay said tens of thousands of spectators were expected to attend the Australian Open at Sydney’s Lakes Golf Club from 02 to 05 December 2010.
"The Shark is a sporting legend, an Australian icon and a perfect ambassador for the 2010 Australian Open Golf Championships in Sydney," Ms McKay said.
More than 30,000 visitors came for the Australian Open Golf last year, including significant numbers from overseas and interstate.
"Global golf stars like Greg Norman, defending champion Adam Scott and 2006 US Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy will guarantee another great crowd in 2010," she said.
Greg Norman has joined other famous Sydneysiders such as Socceroos captain Lucas Neill and chef Neil Perry to create a new 15-second television commercial promoting the best of Sydney.
