Adam Scott has thrown a curveball as he commits to play in this week's Dell Technologies Championship, deviating from the plan he laid out to the media just weeks ago.
As expected, the Aussie celebrated the birth of his second child (Byron) on August 18th. Previously, Scott had intentions to rest for a few weeks to be with his family in The Bahamas, but plans have changed. Now that he sits at 73rd in the FedExCup standings, Scott would not crack the field for the BMW Championship if he stuck to the plan. Instead, he'll need to improve at least three spots this week to make sure he's inside the top-70 FEC bubble which is the cut off for qualifying into the BMW Championship (in two weeks). In his favor is a stellar resume at TPC Boston, winning the 2003 edition while picking up five additional top 10s in 10 return trips since the debut victory. Aug 28 - 10:29 AM

The 2016-17 PGA TOUR season is likely over for Adam Scott as he heads home to be with his wife for the birth of their second child, taking a pass on this week's NORTHERN TRUST.

The Aussie played the final major without Stevie Williams on the bag, and had this period of rest already in his planner. Scott's wife is due to give birth this week and he plans to remain in The Bahamas over the next few weeks to be with them. His hope was to bank enough FedExCup points that he'd be able to return at the BMW Championship, but Scott currently sits at 66th in the standings. That means he'll need a change of heart before next week's Dell Technologies Championship if he wants to qualify for the 70-man BMW field. Scott told reporters "if it turns out to be a forced break then you’ve got to take advantage of that. It’s all good things that are happening." So, gamers should not be expecting a change of heart.

World No. 12 Adam Scott rallied for a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to conclude on 6-under 274, up 12 places to T10 with play still in progress.

After top-ranked Rickie Fowler (No. 9) missed the 36-hole cut, the Aussie became the top dog in OWGR remaining in the field. After kicking off in 71-64-71, he began T22 on 4-under, five adrift of a trio of overnight leaders. The 36-year-old was 1-over thru 13 holes, outbalancing birdie-2 at 4 (from 11'5") with bogeys at 5 and 10, but then circled 14, 16 and 17 coming in, two of those between 18 and 21 feet. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.147 strokes off-the-tee, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 5.366. This was Scott's second FESJC after solo 7th in 2007 and will post a seventh top 25 of the season in 11 starts, possibly a fourth top 10.

World No. 12 Adam Scott twirled a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to reach 5-under 135, up 54 spots on the live leaderboard to T11 and tying the low round of the day with J.B. Holmes and low round of the week.

This is the 36-year-old's second St. Jude, first since a solo 7th in 2007 where he was the 54-hole leader by three but closed in 5-over 75. He sleepwalked to a 1-over 71 on Day 1, outpacing two birdies with three bogeys on six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. The Aussie improved to nine fairways and 14 greens in regulation in R2, gaining 2.763 strokes off-the-tee, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 3.301. He also the clubhouse leader in SG: Tee-to-Green thru 36 holes, posting 8.765, 6.754 of that in R2. Scott erased a lone bogey-5 at 5 with five birdies and eagle-3 at 16 from 17'7", highlighted by a near-ace at the par-3 14th, tapping in from eight inches. He posted 1.643 putts per GIR though -0.793 SG: Putting, missing five scoring tries from inside of 11 feet.
Jun 9 - 6:54 PM

Adam Scott rebounded from a poor start at the Memorial Tournament, styling a 6-under-par 35-31=66 during round two, cracking the top 25 on the live leaderboard at 2-under 142 after 36 holes.

The Aussie swallowed five bogeys and a double in round one, settling for a disappointing 76. He returned for a morning tee time on Friday and flipped the script, entirely. Scott put on a stripe show today, setting up nine birdie looks from inside 13 feet while also splashing home a 22'1" eagle putt at the par-5 15th. The 36-year-old walked off the course gaining 4.049 strokes approaching-the-green. Scott entered the week with three top 5s on his Memorial resume (9 starts) but hadn't played here since 2014. It appears he needed a round to refresh his memory on Muirfield Village, but now he's a strong contender to make a weekend run.
Jun 2 - 1:41 PM

Past champ and World No. 11 Adam Scott rallied for a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to conclude on 5-under 283, up seven places to season-best T6, five shy of champion Si Woo Kim.

The 2004 winner adds his fourth top 10 in his 16th appearance, first since T6 in 2007. It's his sixth top 25 of the season in nine starts and third top 10, joining T10 at the CIMB Classic and T9 at the Masters. After opening in 70-72-71, the 36-year-old began on 3-under (T13) and found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 4.304 strokes tee-to-green. He was birdie-less 2-over thru 10 holes, squaring Nos. 4 and 8, but played his final eight holes in blemish-free 4-under, circling 11, 12, 16 and 17, adding a 13'6" par-saver at the last. For the week, the Aussie tallied 17 birdies against eight bogeys and two doubles.
May 14 - 7:12 PM

Past champ and World No. 9 Adam Scott patched together a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in today's final round of the Masters Tournament for a 72-hole total of 2-under 286, down two places into a two-way T9.

The 2013 playoff winner and 2011 runner-up was making his 16th appearance and this will be a fifth top 10, first since the win in 2013. After opening in 75-69-69, he began in solo 7th, three shy of co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. The 36-year-old conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, registering 1.78 average putts per hole with zero, 3-putts. He squared four bogeys, lowlighted by two over his final four holes, outbalancing birdies at 6, 13 and 14. This was the Aussie's 64th major championship and his win here in 2013 remains his lone major title.
Apr 9 - 7:03 PM

Past champ and World No. 9 Adam Scott carded a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Masters Tournament for a three-day tally of 3-under 213, up three spots on the live leaderboard to solo 7th, three adrift of clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

After opening in 75-69, the 2013 playoff winner began in a three-way T10 on even-par, four in arrears of four co-leaders. He landed 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, recording 1.72 average putts per hole. The 36-year-old circled three birdie-4s at Nos. 2, 8 and 13, the latter his long of the day from 12 feet, and was able to keep the card clean with an up-and-down save from a greenside bunker at the 18th. His blemish-free lap was just the second of the day and fifth of the week thus far.
Apr 8 - 7:03 PM

Adam Scott roared back into contention with a 3-under-par 32-37=69 during the second round of the 81st Masters Tournament, finding a spot inside the top 15 after 36 holes.

The 2013 champ opened his week with a 3-over 75, struggling with a pair of three-putts. He recorded two more three-jacks today, but managed three less putts overall (29 vs 32). From tee-to-green, the Aussie remains steady, striping 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 14 greens today. On the bright side, Scott owns a 72.69 scoring average in R3 of his Masters career and he's even better during R4 (71.46). Scott should be ready to make a weekend push yet again, but the wildcard, as usual, will be his flat stick.
Apr 7 - 6:25 PM

For the first time in seven years Adam Scott's Masters prep takes in a visit to the Shell Houston Open.

The Aussie was last seen in this tournament back in 2010 and it is somewhat surprising that he has played it so infrequently given that since the move to Houston GC he has found real form, winning in 2007, opening with a 63 in 2008 (admittedly a second round 76 saw him miss the weekend) and carding a T14 in 2010. Perhaps he is looking to not only reacquaint himself with the course, but also create a new pre-Masters vibe because since winning at Augusta National in 2013 he is yet to add a top ten there; something needed to change. One thing Scott will enjoy is a return to Texas: he is a four-time winner in the state and all at different venues (Colonial, Las Colinas and San Antonio make up the grand slam). Last seen limping to the weekend in the Mexico Championship (73-76) before finding something in his game to post two 68s to close.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 7 and defending champ Adam Scott labored to a 5-over-par 39-37=76 in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship and is buried at T69 (of 76 players) at 7-over 149. UPDATE: Scott posted rounds of 73-76-68-68 to finish T45 on 1-over 285, 15 shots back of champion Dustin Johnson.

Scott shot 80 in R2 of the WGC-HSBC Champions back in October, and responded with 64-66 to salvage a T14. He's going to need something similar to save some face in Mexico City. The Aussie birdied his first hole of the tourney, but bobbed and weaved to a 73, outbalancing five birdies with five bogeys and a double. He didn't get any better in Round 2, carding a single birdie-4 at 11 (from 15 inches), erasing it with six bogeys, posting a horrific -4.160 SG: Putting and 36 total putts. The 36-year-old 3-jacked three times, lowlighted by a 3-putt par (from 16'6") at the par-4 first after driving the green.
Mar 3 - 5:44 PM

Adam Scott will look to defend his title at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, this time being hosted at a new venue, Club de Golf Chapultepec.

World No. 7 completed his Florida Swing dominance last year when he coasted to a win at Trump National Doral, racing out to a 10-under 134 aggregate to grab the lead at the midpoint. Scott would fall to T2 after R3 but closed with a 3-under 69 to eclipse Bubba Watson by one stroke. Scott remains steady (no missed cuts since the victory) but hasn't found his way back to the podium over that stretch. Scott will carry the title of defending champ this week, but he'll be in the same boat as everyone else, trying to dial in his distances on the high-altitude test this week brings. Having a residence in the Swiss Alps may help Scott slightly as he's surely no stranger to golf in high altitudes.

World No. 7 and defending champ Adam Scott wrapped up his sixth Honda Classic with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 and a four-day total of 4-under 276, up 23 places on the live leaderboard to T16.

After opening in 68-69-71, the top-ranked player -- and pre-tourney fave outright -- began T39 on 2-under, 11 back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 5.086 strokes tee-to-green. The 36-year-old squared bogey-5s at eight and 11, whiffing a par-saver from 36 inches at the former, offset by birdies at 3, 4, 10 and 18, all from inside of 12 feet. He missed three birdie tries from inside of nine feet, contributing to -1.318 SG: Putting, but did enough to post his eighth straight top-25 finish worldwide, fourth straight on the PGA TOUR.
Feb 26 - 3:45 PM

World No. 7 and defending champ Adam Scott bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of The Honda Classic to post 3-under 137, currently up seven spots to T17 and six back of 36-hole co-leaders Ryan Palmer and Wesley Bryan.

The top-ranked player -- and pre-tourney fave outright -- was 5-under and T1 at the midpoint last year (70-65). He began his defense with a five-birdie three-bogey 68 on four (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. The 36-year-old improved to seven fairways and 13 GIR, but dipped to 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.844 SG: Putting, taking 30 putts to get around. He was bogey-free 3-under thru 13 holes, but didn't record a par in his last five holes, carding bogey-birdie-double-bogey-birdie to finish. The Aussie's split on five birdies included three conversions from between 10 and 20 feet, highlighted by a walk-off 4 at the 18th from 10'9".
Feb 24 - 6:12 PM

Adam Scott took home the hardware after the 2016 Honda Classic and returns this week for a chance to defend his title at PGA National's Champion Course.

World No. 7 eased into his victory last year, opening with an even-par 70 to find himself T23 after day one. From there he posted rounds to 65-66-70 to land one clear of runner-up Sergio Garcia and four clear of Blayne Barber and Justin Thomas. The most remarkable part of that victory was surviving a quad-bogey 7 at the par-3 15th in round three. On the week he put on a ball-striking clinic, gaining 4.7 strokes off-the-tee and 7.7 strokes approaching-the-green. Last week, Scott posted a T11 at the Genesis Open, his first start in the States since the TOUR Championship in September. The Aussie deserves to be a top-tier pick in all fantasy formats this week.
