AUGUSTA, United States (AFP) - Adam Scott has yet to decide if kangaroo will be on this year's Masters Champions Dinner menu but he has high hopes Australian golfers keep things hopping at Augusta National.

The 33-year-old broke the Australia curse last year, sinking a 12-foot birdie putt on the second play-off hole to become the first Aussie to win the green jacket symbolic of Masters supremacy, capturing his first major title.

"Hopefully every Aussie that's there will appreciate not being asked whether it will be them this year," Scott said on Tuesday in a conference call ahead of the April tournament, the annual first major of the golfing season.

"Hopefully the shackles are off and we're going to have a host of Aussies up there in the champions locker room and serving dinners in the future."
