Adam Scott's Masters win is hoped to bring global attention to Australia's world class golf courses.

Adam Scott secured his first major championship at the 2013 Masters last week - the first Australian to win the tournament - after an edgy sudden death playoff against former champion Ángel Cabrera.

The golfer's significant win is hoped to bring a welcome boost to Australia's growing golf industry; the country currently boasts six golf courses in US Golf Magazine's top 100 courses in the world list.

"We're well position to take advantage of the lucrative global golf tourism market - internationally savvy golf enthusiasts seeking world-class experiences," said Andrew McEvoy, Tourism Australia's managing director.

Despite being only the first Australian ever to win one of the sport's most prestigious events, Scott said it was another Australian golfer, Greg Norman, who first brought the sport to the nation's attention.

"There was on guy who inspired a nation of golfers and that's Greg Norman," said the 32-year-old golfer after lifting his 21st championship.

"He's been incredible to me and part of this definitely belongs to him...we're very close. I would love to share a beer with him and talk through it all."
