Past champ Adam Scott patched together an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The Barclays to post 7-under 277, down one spot into a three-way T4, two in arrears to champion Patrick Reed.
The 36-year-old began the finale in solo third on 7-under, two back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he bobbled to back-to-back bogey-5s to open, the latter a 3-putt from 47'3", but rebounded with birdies on Nos. 4, 7 and 9 to turn 1-under. After the break, he 3-jacked the 11th for bogey from 54'9" and 3-jacked the 13th from 31'7" for bogey-6, before completing his scoring with a 31-incher for birdie-3 at 15. The Aussie had a 3'6" birdie try on the last to share second, but whiffed. He was No. 1 for the week in SG: Approach-the-Green (8.976) and SG: Tee-to-Green (14.706), but 76th (of 79) in SG: Putting at -4.814, including -3.844 in R4. Scott records his sixth top 10 of the season (17 starts), five of which are top 5s. Aug 28 - 7:04 PM

Past champ Adam Scott painted a week-low 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of The Barclays, up 24 places to T2 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead on 7-under 206. UPDATE: With play completed, Scott is in solo third, two back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The 36-year-old, 2013 winner at Liberty National GC, began the third frame on 1-under (T26) after opening his 10th appearance in 69-72, seven adrift of 36-hole leader Patrick Reed. He landed just 3 (of 14) fairways but pelted 14 greens in regulation, posting 5.067 in SG: Approach-the-Green, currently leading in the latter with a cumulative 6.990. The Aussie, a two-time winner this season in 16 starts, kicked off with a hole-out eagle-2 at the first (from the right rough 95 yards away) and added birdies on Nos. 2, 4, 7, 10, 12 and 15. Four of his conversions dropped from inside of 11 feet and also canned a 45-footer for birdie-3 at 12 and a 44-footer for birdie at the par-4 15th. Scott bogeyed the third (3-putt from 36'2") and the 16th (failed scramble) that completed his scoring. He entered the week No. 3 in the FedExCup standings.

Adam Scott fashioned a 2-under-par 34-35=69 to kick off his week at The Barclays, currently three strokes off the pacesetters Patrick Reed and Martin Laird.

The Aussie split half of his fairways while landing 15 greens in regulation. That high GIR-rate helped keep things stress-free and nearly led to a clean card. The lone blemish came at the par-4 11th when he missed the green and couldn't convert an 11'3" par saver. All three of Scott's birdies were rolled in from 6'1" or shorter. In fact, that 6'1" splash was the longest converted putt of the round, losing 1.034 strokes putting. The 36-year-old has to be pleased with his opening round, but has a lot of room for improvement, particularly with the putter.

Adam Scott closed out his week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with a 2-under-par 32-36=68 to post even-par 280 on the week, good for T10 on the live leaderboard.

The Aussie traded 12 birdies with 12 bogeys on the week, with the rest scribbled as pars. Today, he opened up with a 31'7" hole out from the greenside bunker and followed it up with a tap-in birdie at the par-5 second. His only other highlight was a 17-footer for birdie at the par-4 eighth hole. As we've grown accustomed to seeing, Scott's main downfall was the flat stick this week. He lost 1.5 strokes putting on the week (40th in the field). Regardless of the lukewarm putting, the 2011 champ collected a fifth top 10 in 14 tries here at Firestone Country Club.
Jul 3 - 4:51 PM

Adam Scott launched up the leaderboard in round two of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, styling a 2-under-par 33-35=68, reaching the midpoint at 1-under 139.

The Aussie was uncharacteristically sloppy with his irons in round one, but corrected that on day two. He found 13 greens in regulation today, gaining 2.865 strokes approaching-the-green. From there, he missed a few putts from inside eight feet, but also bombed in two putts from outside 18 feet. Most notable was a 49'4" long-distance birdie at the par-4 17th hole. The 2011 champ will enter the weekend just three off the pace set by fellow Aussie and playing partner for the first two days, Jason Day.

World No. 8 Adam Scott orchestrated a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the two-day second round of the 116th U.S. Open to post even-par 140, currently T12 on the leaderboard and four shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Adam Scott.

The 35-year-old didn't get his 15th appearance underway until Friday and got 33 holes in the books before play was suspended due to darkness. He opened with 71, outpacing two birdies with three bogeys on nine (of 14) fairways, 12 greens in regulation and 30 total putts. The Aussie went off No. 10 tee in his second frame and improved to 10 fairways and 15 GIR, taking 32 whacks with the flat stick. He birdied holes 11, 13, 17 and 6, overshadowing bogeys on 10, 14 and 2. Scott's split featured a 27-footer for birdie at the par-4 11th and an eight-footer at the par-3 sixth.

World No. 8 Adam Scott pegs it in his 15th U.S. Open Championship and has a first-round reservation at 2:20 p.m. ET off No. 1 tee with countryman Jason Day and South African Louis Oosthuizen.

The Aussie took three weeks off last year ahead of Chambers Bay and back-doored a T4 with a closing 64. It was his second straight top 10 (T9/2014) after going his first 12 without one. This year, he's taken two weeks off after a T55 at Colonial, his sixth straight event without a top-10 finish since connecting three straight at the end of February and early March. That three-week run started with a T2 at Riviera and followed with back-to-back wins at the Honda and Doral, taking his win total on TOUR to 13. This week marks Scott's 61st major appearance and he owns eight top-5 finishes, including his win at the 2013 Masters. He missed the cut at the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont after rounds of 18-over 76-82=158.

Past champ Adam Scott crafted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to post 7-under 281, up 13 on the leaderboard to T10 with play still in progress.

The 2004 winner and FedExCup leader began his final frame on 3-under (T23) after opening his 15th PLAYERS in 73-65-75. He was bogey-free thru 35 holes, but ate a quad bogey-8 on the par-4 18th. The Aussie's third frame yielded four birdies but were overshadowed by five bogeys and a double bogey-7. In the finale, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling four to outpace two bogeys, the last of which was a 3-putt from 75'7" at the par-3 13th. The Aussie added an eagle from 22'8" at the par-5 16th and finished his scoring with a 27-incher at the par-3 17th, playing his final five holes in 4-under. If he nets a top 10, it'll be his first at TPC Sawgrass since T6 in 2007.

Past champ and FedExCup leader Adam Scott twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of THE PLAYERS to reach the halfway point on 6-under 138, up 80 places to T23 with play still in progress.

The 2004 champ has one blemish on the card thru 36 holes, a closing quadruple bogey at the par-4 18th on day 1 -- where he put two in the water. He rebounded in his second frame to circle seven on 12 greens in regulation for a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR. Six of the Aussie's seven conversions traveled less than 10 feet with a long of 17'1" on the par-3 17th, his eighth hole of the round. He went a relatively stress-free 6-for-6 in scrambling with his longest par putt dropping from 4'8" at the 18th, four swings better than yesterday's '8'.

Past champ Adam Scott turns his attention to THE PLAYERS at TPC Sawgrass.

This is Scott's 15th PLAYERS with three top 10s highlighted by a 'W' in 2004, his second (of 13) TOUR titles. Since 2012, his last four in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, show T15-T19-T38-T38. This week marks the 27th event of the season and the 35-year-old is the current FedExCup leader, joining countryman Jason Day as the only multiple winners thus far in 2015-16. He won his two in back-to-back fashion at The Honda Classic at the WGC-Cadillac -- in Florida -- and tacked on two-runners-up in 10 total starts. The Aussie was T17 last week at the Wells Fargo in his first action since T42 at the Masters.

Adam Scott signed for a 3-and-2 victory over Chris Wood in his second match of the week at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

The Aussie arrived in fantastic form but still owned a pedestrian 14-15 record at this event. The change of venue to Austin Country Club appears to have righted the ship. After a disappointing loss on day one, Scott led from start to finish versus Englishman, Chris Wood, today. The Aussie rolled in a 6-foot birdie on the first, and then circled three more before making the turn with a 2-up lead (Holes No. 3, 5, and 9). He kept up the torrid pace after the turn, adding birdies at the par-3 11th, par-4 13th, and par-5 16th hole. The flat stick was en fuego today and that makes him a very dangerous opponent as he readies for Bill Haas in round three.

Adam Scott signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 after today's final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to wrap his ninth appearance on 9-under 279, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T13.

For the second day in a row, Scott erased what was otherwise stellar rounds with disaster on the par-4 finishing hole. Yesterday, he was 5-under on his lap before swallowing a triple bogey-7 on the 18th. Today, he was in the exact same position, 5-under thru 17 holes before eating a double bogey-6 on the last. The 35-year-old, looking for his third straight win in as many starts, overcame big numbers in each of the two wins, but there was no getting by his trouble this week. His totals for the week show: 18 birdies, one eagle, four bogeys, two doubles and the triple.
Mar 20 - 5:20 PM

Adam Scott carved out a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 6-under 210, up four places on the live leaderboard to T21.

Looking to become the first player on TOUR to win in three consecutive starts since Rory McIlroy in 2014, Scott opened his ninth Palmer Invite in bogey-free 67, T2 after 18 holes. He hit a bump in the road on day two however, with 73, dropping to T25 and nine adrift of 36-hole leader Jason Day. The 35-year-old regressed to seven (of 14) fairways in R3 but improved to 14 greens in regulation and registered 1.643 putts per GIR. His most costly missed green came on his last, the par-4 18th, where he hit his approach from the fairway from 190 yards away, 186 yards and into the water. After his drop, it took two more to reach the surface, two-putting for triple bogey-7. Scott was bogey-free 4-under on his inward half prior to his devastating finish.
Mar 19 - 12:47 PM

Due to the threat of inclement weather, tee times for the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational will begin on split tees between 7:35 - 9:35 a.m. ET.

Adam Scott finally hit a wall, so to speak, chasing 67 on day one with a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in round two at Bay Hill Club and Lodge. At 4-under 140, he's down 21 places on the live leaderboard to T23 and a distant nine in arrears to 36-hole leader and fellow Aussie Jason Day. The 35-year-old skipped last week's Valspar after winning in back-to-back weeks at The Honda Classic and the WGC-Cadillac. He carded three birdies on day two and for a second straight round, hit 10 greens in regulation, but erased his circles with two bogeys and a double. Scott digressed to -1.703 in strokes gained: putting (from 2.669/R1) and 1.800 putts per GIR.
Mar 18 - 6:08 PM

Adam Scott fired a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the opening round of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Aussie arrived with back-to-back wins and there was no letup as he kept his foot on the gas today. He continues to flourish without the anchored putter, splashing home six putts from outside six feet on the round. That includes a pair of par-savers from outside 10 feet, the longest coming from 12'3" at the par-3 second hole. Overall, Scott walked off the course having gained 2.891 (of 4.476) strokes with the flat stick. This round is the least surprising news of the day, and gamers should continue to ride the Aussie until he shows any sign of a letdown.
