At No. 11 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Adam Scott joins Zach Johnson (12), Kevin Kisner (16), and Matt Kuchar (20) as the only four players in the OWGR Top 20 at this week's 144-man Sony Open in Hawaii.
Since joining the PGA TOUR 13 years ago, Scott has played the Sony six times. He sandwiched a missed cut in 2011 with a T2 in 2009 and a back-door T8 two years ago, closing in 6-under 64. In 20 career rounds at the par-70 Waialae CC, he's put half in red numbers, and has a career scoring average of 68.75. The 35-year-old's last (of 11) TOUR wins came 26 starts ago in a playoff at the 2014 Crowne Plaza. In his most recent action six weeks ago, he went T10 (of 18) at the unofficial Hero World Challenge -- on his home course in The Bahamas -- and a T2 at the Emirates Australian Open the week prior.

Adam Scott has opened the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season with three appearances in limited-field no-cut events.

Scott couldn't quite kick it into the next gear this past week at the Hero World Challenge. Despite being contested on his home course (in The Bahamas), he ended up T10 (of 18 players), nine strokes back of eventual champ Bubba Watson. This was the third consecutive week of competition for the 35-year-old, coming off a T2 at the Australian Open with a final-round 6-under 65, and a disappointing solo fifth at the UNIQLO Masters, where he was the first-round leader. Elsewhere, he back-doored a solo second at the 78-man no-cut CIMB Classic with a final-round 9-under 63, and tied-seventh at the Japan Open the third week of October. The Aussie appears to be breaking out of the funk he was in last season, where he failed to advance past the first round of the Playoffs, thus missing the TOUR Championship for the first time in six years.

Adam Scott blistered Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club's West Course for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 in today's final round of the CIMB Classic and hung up 25-under 263, good for outright possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Scott finished one stroke off the pace of champion Justin Thomas.

Man, the Aussie took care of business this week. He hit all 14 fairways today and eyed 16 opportunities to break par. His set of eight circles included a 3 at the par-5 third hole and a walk-off 4 at 18 for the third consecutive day. Overall, Scott striped 45 (of 55) fairways and hit 59 GIR, but most impressively, his putting was exceptionally strong. At last check, he ranked fifth in the field in putts per GIR at 1.610. He also led the field with three eagles. Regardless of what happens, it's an exciting time given the massive concern over his switch to the non-anchored putting stroke. He'll give it another test at Sheshan International this week. Scott has finished inside the top 25 in all four appearances at the WGC-HSBC Champions. He tied for 12th last year.

Adam Scott added another 6-under-par 66 in today's third round of the CIMB Classic.

It's the same score as Friday's but he reversed the nine-hole splits today with 34 and 32, respectively. Scott hit 16 greens in regulation and poured in seven birdies, including a walk-off 4 at No. 18 for the second consecutive round. He signed his card parked at 16-under 200. It was good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead for only a moment until James Hahn took it one lower.

Adam Scott is 10-under-par 68-66=134 through two rounds of the CIMB Classic, four swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Oh, the value of 72 guaranteed holes of PGA TOUR competition. It's all the Aussie wants as he plays through the transition to the non-anchored putter. It's working thus far in Kuala Lumpur where he's covered four bogeys with a pair of eagle-3s (both at the fifth hole) and 10 birdies. He walked off today's round with three straight circles to touch double digits under par. At last check, Scott ranked T31 in the field with 27 greens in regulation but seventh in putts per GIR at 1.593. He'll take it.

Adam Scott trounced Rickie Fowler 6 and 5 in Sunday singles at the Presidents Cup.

Given the early success by the Americans at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea today, this may go down as a lone bright spot for the hosts in the final session. It would also qualify as such for the Aussie, who concludes the week at 1-2-2. Wielding a short putter for the first time in most memories, he rolled in birdies of 7'1" and 21'3" at Nos. 7 and 8, respectively, to spark a stunning run. An approach from 148 yards covered the flag stick at the par-4 ninth for another birdie. He then connected from 45'5" for eagle at the par-5 10th, and chased it with birdie-4s and 11 and 12. All told, Scott ripped off six consecutive wins, all with par breakers. The match ended mercifully for Fowler when both he and Scott penciled 3s at the par-3 13th. This was the second match out but the first to finish. Fowler concluded the week with a forgettable 1-3-0 slate.

Adam Scott and Marc Leishman halved their foursomes match with Bubba Watson and J.B. Holmes on Saturday at the Presidents Cup.

Each team climbs to 6 points overall, but the momentum was clearly with the hosts late in this one. Leishman confidently saved par from 7'11" at the par-5 18th, but Watson's birdie try from just 4'8" never threatened. The lefty and Holmes would have gone 3-0-0 if it dropped. The Internationals held but a 1-up lead for only two holes in the match, but it was extinguished with a bogey-loss at the par-3 fifth. The Americans staked a 2-up lead after the eighth hole, and then later through 12, but International wins at 13 and 16 squared the match. Using a short putter, Scott is now 0-1-2 this week. Leishman is 0-2-1.

Australia's Adam Scott prepares for his seventh playing of The Presidents Cup with the 11th edition being held at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea.

Interestingly enough, Scott has never been a part of a winning International Team, having been on the losing end in the last five and a tie in his 2003 debut. With six prior appearances, the Aussie is by far the veteran of the 12-man International squad, with the next closest being countryman Jason Day and South African Charl Schwartzel with two apiece (2011, 2013). Scott has compiled a less-than-stellar 12-15-3 record in the biennial competition, including a 2-2-1 tally in the 2013 edition where he was paired with Japan's Hideki Matsuyama in each of the four-somes and four-ball matches. The 35-year-old is coming of his second-worst season on the PGA TOUR where he finished 106th in the FedExCup standings going winless in 15 events, missing four cuts and posting just three top 10s. After finishing 157th on TOUR in strokes gained: putting, he's going with the short putter this week in Incheon, Korea.

Past Barclays champion Adam Scott prepares for his ninth FedExCup Playoffs and enters the postseason 94th in the FedExCup standings.

Scott is 7-for-8 at The Barclays in the Playoff era, half going for top 25s, including a T9 in 2010 (Ridgewood CC) and his win in 2013 at Liberty National. He co-lead last year's edition (Ridgewood) at 8-under-par after 36 holes, but a 4-over 75 in round three knocked him out of a chance to repeat, eventually finishing T15. The Aussie is one of 22 players that has made the FEC Playoffs in every season since their inception in 2007. His best finish is fourth in 2013. He's advanced to the TOUR Championship in every year except in 2009 (first-round exit) and 2008, eliminated after round three at the BMW Championship. The 35-year-old has not had much success this season on limited starts (14), posting five top 25s on 11 cashes, three for top 10s, including a T4 at the U.S. Open and most recently a T10 at The Open Championship. Since St. Andrews, he's posted T45-CUT-T63. He's 166th on TOUR in strokes gained: putting.

The second round of the PGA Championship was halted at 5:28 p.m. CT due to inclement weather. UPDATE: Play has been suspended for the day. Fifty-seven golfers were stranded. The restart is scheduled to 7:00 a.m. on Saturday.

A sizable storm cell has been encroaching from the north-northwest, so it was only a matter of time before officials sounded the horn. Adam Scott completed his second round hours ago, and he's probably long gone having reached the midpoint in 7-over-par 76-75=151. The Aussie converted an eagle and seven birdies, but dropped 16 shots with nine bogeys, two doubles and a triple. It's a massively disappointing conclusion to his reunion with caddie Steve Williams, but you never know if the Kiwi will agree to another stint on the bag.

Australia's Adam Scott checks into this week's 97th PGA Championship ranked 90th in the FedExCup standings and tees it up the first two rounds with Sweden's Henrik Stenson and Brooks Koepka of the United States.

Scott has four consecutive top-20 finishes at the PGA. Since 2011, he's posted: 7-T11-T5-T15. In total, he's made 14 starts in the season's final major cashing 11 times, with a best of T3 in the 2006 edition at Medinah CC. Scott has made just 12 starts on his season, posting five top 25s, three for top 10s. His season best is matching T4s at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and the U.S. Open. He finished a disappointing T10 at The Open Championship, where he opened the final round in 5-under 31, before posting a 4-over 40 on the back. The Aussie finished T38 at the Masters in April. His win at Augusta in 2013 remains his only major title in 58 total appearances. Scott posted T39 in 2010 and T9 in 2004 in the two prior PGA's at Whistling Straits.

Adam Scott settled for a 1-under-par 31-40=71 in today's final round of The Open Championship.

Oh, what could have been. Sure, that's a cry many could utter most weeks, but the Aussie's is especially poignant. After sitting bogey-free, 6-under through 13 holes at St. Andrews, he closed bogey-bogey-par-bogey-double bogey to post 10-under 278. Had he scored par over that stretch, Scott would currently share the 72-hole clubhouse lead. If there's a silver lining, it's that he contended in another major after months of lackluster form. His reunion with Steve Williams has clearly paid dividends.

Adam Scott is three shots off the lead going into the last 18 holes of the 144th Open Championship after a steady 2-under-par 35-35=70 in round three.

Scott could only pick off three birdies on a day of low scoring at the Old Course but swallowed just a single bogey. A par at 18 after his 10-foot birdie putt stayed left put the Aussie at 9-under 207 and that's just three shots behind leaders Louis Oosthuizen, Jason Day and Paul Dunne. Scott remains a genuine title threat although he also has Jordan Spieth (-11) and two-time Open champion Padraig Harrington (-10) to overtake in round four if he's to secure a first Claret Jug following near misses at Royal Lytham in 2012 and Muirfield in 2013. He will also have to sink more putts. The 2011 Masters winner needed 35 swishes of the flat stick in round three despite having the expert eye of bagman Steve Williams to help him read the greens.

Adam Scott twirled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of The Open Championship, reaching the midpoint in 7-under 137, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Soctt landed 16 greens in regulation at St. Andrews today and lassoed five birdies, including a tap-in 3 at the 18th hole. He's the third to touch 137 and give leader Danny Willett a little more to consider entering the third round. With top fives in the last three Opens and a T4 at Chambers Bay, Scott was an automatic favorite, but again, as we cited yesterday, the reunion with Steve Williams has proven invaluable. It's also worthy of concern down the road when the caddie returns to what he wants to do on a full-time basis, not to mention when Scott will be forced to stop anchoring his putter on Jan. 1, 2016, but they (and we) need to milk the partnership and the success for all it's worth in the meantime.
Fri, Jul 17, 2015 12:29:00 PM

Adam Scott turns his full attention to the Old Course at this week's Open Championship.

The Aussie is a links-course machine, evidenced by three straight top 5s at this event. In addition, he added a T4 at Chambers Bay earlier this season, another links-style setup. With Steve Williams back on his bag, Scott has regained confidence and makes his way back into top-tier territory. Gamers should proceed with confidence.
