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. Jul 20 - 1:05 PM

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.

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.

Adam Scott authored a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of the 115th U.S. Open and posted 3-under 277, good for the early clubhouse lead.

Scott, who welcomed back longtime caddie Steve Williams to the bag this week, began championship Sunday in a six-way tie for 19th at 3-over, seven shots adrift. The Aussie was looking to improve on his T9 in last year's edition, his lone top 10 in 13 prior appearances. For his Father's Day effort, Scott peppered 12 (of 14) fairways and blistered 17 greens in regulation, totaling 31 putts. His split included three-footers at Nos. 2 and 7 and a two-putt birdie at the par-5 eighth. He had a great chance for three consecutive, but missed from 5' at the ninth. The 34-year-old added circles on Nos. 11 (from 23 feet), 16 and 18 to post the low round of the week thus far. Scott has a season-best T4 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and at last check, he sat T4, two shots back of the leader on the course.

Adam Scott toured Chambers Bay in even-par 34-36=70 in today's opening round of the 115th U.S. Open, finishing five shots off the clubhouse lead.

We will take this, won't we? It's all relative right now for the struggling Scott whose T24 in his title defense at Colonial is his only top 30 in his last seven starts. Today, he hit 12 greens in regulation and totaled 28 putts. His most notable may have been a long-range conversion for birdie at the par-4 second hole. It was one of three birdies on the round to offset as many bogeys. A potential ace up his sleeve is the return of caddie Steve Williams, who should go a long way to relieve some of the pressure that Scott has felt while putting. If the Aussie experiences an immediate improvement with the broomstick, it's not a stretch to cite Williams as the solution. Since ranking 12th in strokes gained: putting at Doral, Scott hasn't ranked inside the top 50 in the stat in any start in a tournament where it can be measured. Of course, ShotLink data isn't available at the U.S. Open, but we'll be able to glean success in other ways if it happens.

Adam Scott welcomes former caddie Steve Williams back for this week's 115th U.S. Open and is paired with American Dustin Johnson and Spaniard Sergio Garcia in the first two rounds.

Scott's T9-finish in last year's U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 is his best result in 13 previous appearances and his only top 10. On the plus side, after missed cuts in 2010-11, he has cashed in three straight, adding a T15 in 2012 and T45 in 2013. The Aussie, 116th in the FedExCup standings, reunites with semi-retired/former/part-time caddie Steve Williams this week, an arrangement that is said to include the "meat" of the remaining PGA TOUR schedule. The 34-year-old has one top 10 (T4, WGC-Cadillac Championship) on nine starts in 2015. His season resume showing T38 at the Masters, winless (0-3) at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play, and T38 at THE PLAYERS. Scott abandoned the anchored putting stroke this year and has struggled to adapt, clocking in at 192nd on TOUR in strokes gained: putting.

Defending champion Adam Scott carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

After opening with a 2-over 72, Scott has stormed back into contention with consecutive 66s to post 6-under 204. The 34-year-old began the day T25, eight shots off the pace, and circled five birdies against one bogey to move to within five shots of the lead with play still in progress. The Aussie hadn't holed any putts of significance until dropping a 32'3" for birdie on the par-3 13th. He would add a 19'5" conversion two holes later, sandwiching his lone bogey on 14, three-putting from 41'11".

Adam Scott snapped out of his funk with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The defending champ striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation at Colonial Country Club today. It's his lowest aggregate in 26 rounds this season. He connected for four birdies, including a round-long strike from 30'4" at the par-4 second hole. Scott parred the entire back nine before coming to rest at 2-under 138, eight strokes off Kevin Na's 36-hole lead. At last check, Scott's strokes gained: tee-to-green for the day measured 5.085, but he registered -0.531 in strokes gained: putting. But hey, every step forward counts. Given his recent form, we should both take nothing for granted on the weekend and embrace whatever he yields.
May 22 - 7:18 PM

Adam Scott opened his title defense of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 2-over-par 36-36=72.

Sigh. Scott split seven (of 14) fairways and found only 11 greens in regulation today, so he didn't give himself enough opportunities to turn a corner with his putter. He rolled in a birdie from 22'1" to begin the day at the par-4 10th and added a bogey conversion from 20'1" at the par-3 16th, but the Aussie sported negative clips in both strokes-gained splits at last check. He's also eight strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.
May 21 - 6:16 PM

Adam Scott looks out of form but returns to Colonial Country Club for defense of his 2014 Crowne Plaza Invitational title.

The Aussie has lost control of his flat stick, but found his entire game out of sorts last week on his way to a missed cut at the Wells Fargo Championship. He was 2-for-2 at Colonial CC before his victory last year, but neither cut made yielded anything better than a T64. With many gamers getting burned last week, you may be out on an island if you opt for Scott this week.
May 20 - 9:24 AM

At 1-over-par 71-74=145, Adam Scott missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship by one stroke.

Before blaming Scott's putting for today's disappointment, understand that he split only seven (of 28) fairways and his only 22 greens in regulation at Quail Hollow this week. That would put a lot of pressure on any golfer, much less one of the worst statistically with any flat stick on the PGA TOUR. His strokes gained: putting measured -1.301 for 36 holes, but he'll need to tighten all screws to defense his title at next week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Other notables that missed the cut in Charlotte include: 146--2013 champ Derek Ernst (bogey-free 69 in second round); Jason Kokrak; Louis Oosthuizen; Nick Taylor ... 147--2005 champ Vijay Singh; Brendon de Jonge; Nick Watney; Padraig Harrington ... 148--2006 champ Jim Furyk; Scott Piercy; Rory Sabbatini ... 149--Daniel Summerhays; Robert Karlsson.
May 15 - 8:05 PM

With a 1-up loss to Paul Casey in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Adam Scott cannot advance to the round of 16.

Both sat on a 1-up lead during this match, but Scott stumbled down the stretch. With a bogey-4 at the 13th hole, they were even. Another bogey at 14 (to Casey's birdie-3) gave the Brit the lead for good. They traded par-wins, but Scott's final dash at the gettable, par-5 18th yielded but a par. Now 0-2, the Aussie cannot survive pool play, but he'll conclude his commitment to the tournament with a third-round match against Chris Kirk (1-1) on Friday. Casey will be aiming to go 3-0 versus Francesco Molinari (1-1).
Apr 30 - 6:18 PM

Adam Scott passed on last year's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship but returns this year for a 13th time (compiling a pedestrian 14-12 record in previous 12) and will face Francesco Molinari, Chris Kirk and Paul Casey in Group 9.

In fairness, Scott skipping last year's edition (due to scheduling) was not a big surprise as he's suffered first-round exits in five of his last seven WGC-Match Play starts and hasn't made it past round two since 2005. His career match-play singles record drops to 17-18 when you include his several Presidents Cup appearances (plus a smattering of other events). That includes losing to Stewart Cink 4 and 3 in the 2009 edition held at Harding Park. Scott started his 2015 campaign with a promising T4 at Doral but has since gone MC-T35-T38.
Apr 28 - 1:38 PM

Adam Scott arrived at the midpoint of the 79th Masters in 3-under-par 72-69=141 and sits nine strokes off the 36-hole lead.

The 2013 champ hit only 11 greens in regulation on Thursday. He responded to that disappointment with 14 today. That yielded an eagle from close range at the par-3 15th hole and three birdies. Alas, for the second consecutive round, the Aussie walked off with a bogey at the par-4 18th, but at the time he signed his card, his was one of just 10 sub-70s on the board today.
