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.

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".

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.

World No. 7 Adam Scott submitted a 3-under-par 35-33=68 after the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to reach 8-under 205, up five places on the live leaderboard to T6 with third- and final-round play in progress.

It's a jumbled mess as the tourney attempts to get this done on Sunday. After beginnning with 68-69, Scott, T2 here last year and an unofficial winner in 2005 (reduced to 36 holes), got one hole of his third round completed on Saturday, a sloppy par on the par-5 first, when play was suspended. He returned Sunday morning to seven more pars before squaring a lone bogey-5 at eight, bouncing back with birdie-3 at nine to turn even. The 36-year-old went back-to-back at 10 (from 7'0") and then circled 14 and 17 from between 11 and 16 feet. This is his third start of the TOUR season but first since T14 at the WGC-HSBC back at the end of October.

Despite giving himself late hope with an eagle-3 at 15, Adam Scott had to be content with third spot in his home Australian PGA Championship, a closing 5-under-par 33-34=67 taking him to 15-under 273 and four back from winner Harold Varner III.

That's a hat-trick of podium finishes for Scott now in his trio of appearances at RACV Royal Pines Resort although this wasn't the medal he wanted after a win and second previously. Four behind Aussie compatriot Andrew Dodt at start of play, an opening birdie fuelled hope of a low one but he had to wait until the 8th to circle another red number. He stayed in the game with bridies at 9 and 11 but a bogey at 13 was costly. Scott did rally with an eagle-3 at 15 to briefly cut the lead to two but three closing pars weren't enough as Varner kicked further clear. It was a what might have been week for Scott who threatened plenty but ultimately came up short. He said: "It was my best round of the week and it wasn’t good enough unfortunately. But I kept myself in it for most of the day and they’ve just played better. I think I did what I could today but yesterday’s back nine probably is the costly one."

A flat back nine cost Adam Scott the chance of making the final group Sunday; he carded 2-under-par 32-38=70 and lies T4, four back of the leader Andrew Dodt in the Australia PGA Championship, on 10-under 206 at RAVC Royal Pines Resort.

The world number seven blitzed the front nine on Moving Day, making birdie at 3 and 8 before topping it all with an eagle-3 at the 541-yard par-five 9th. But he found water on both the 10th and 13th, could only make bogey at both holes, and when he finally rediscovered red (at the par-five 15th) he immediately gave the shot back at the 16th. "I’m going to have to shoot a low score but there’s a low one out there, that’s for sure," he said afterwards. "After such a good front nine I kind of stalled my way in, but I’m still in there. If I can get off to a fast start and have a front nine as good as today’s, then I’ll be right in the tournament."

Adam Scott is in position to pounce at the Australian PGA Championship after a second round 4-under-par 36-32=68 left T3 him on 8-under 136, four shots behind the halfway leader Andrew Dodt and two adrift of second placed Ashley Hall.

The 2013 Masters champion is continuing to prove that he has a fondness for the RAVC Royal Pines Resort. The winner there in 2013, and only defeated by an inspired Greg Chalmers 12 months later, he can now plot a weekend chase of a third strong finish. Early on Friday he had his feet stuck in clay, as he carded one bogey (at No. 2) and seven pars through the first eight holes. But he made a move around the turn, with birdies at 9 and 10, added another at the 12th, and confirmed his presence near the top of the leaderboard with back-to-back red at 15 and 16. He is the only player in the current top 20 ranked inside the world's top 100; he is 7th, next best Ryan Fox is 131st.

Pre-tournament betting favorite Adam Scott toured RACV Royal Pines Resort in 4-under-par 35-33=68 on Thursday, ending day one of the Australian PGA Championship in a tie for fifth.

The home hero sparked the first huge roar of the day when making eagle-3 at 12 but couldn't build on that and played his next 12 holes in 1-over after 11 pars and a bogey at 18. However, Scott accelerated through the field with a trio of closing birdies at 7, 8 and 9 to pull up three behind clubhouse leader Andrew Dodt. Scott has finished first and second in his two starts on this course so today's start was expected. Round one had to be called early after thunderstorms although it looks unlikely that too many of the afternoon wave who still have to finish will better Scott's 68. In other words, he looks in great shape to land his fourth win in 15 starts in his native Australia.

2013 Australian PGA Championship winner Adam Scott will again tee it up at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast in Queensland after missing last year's tournament.

Comfortably the tournament's highest placed performer in the world rankings (7), the 2013 Masters champ has played the course twice, winning in 2013 and ending the week T2 a year later. In recent years he has been supreme at home, clocking three wins in his last 14 starts there and only twice not making the top five. Not playing here last year meant he dodged the tough conditions, but will arrive unused to the course changes. He's in need of a late season boost and is misfiring a little. He carded a 64 and an 80 at the HSBC Champions, whilst in the Australian Open two weeks ago he logged a 65 as well as two 73s.

Adam Scott returns home and teams up with Marc Leishman ahead of this week's World Cup of Golf which is taking place at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.

Similar to the latest edition (2013), the Aussies will have home country advantage on their side this week. The biggest difference for Team Australia this time around is the lack of World No. 1 Jason Day. Day de-committed from this event in order to rest up ahead of 2017, opening a spot for Marc Leishman to make his World Cup of Golf debut. The loss of Day is obviously a big blow, considering he won the International Trophy back in 2013, the award that was given to the low individual score for the week. The return of the fourball and foursome formats this year means there will be no individual award up for grabs this time around, but the Aussies will still have local knowledge in their favor. Team Australia has won two of the four editions (1959, 2013) when it's been played on home soil.

Gaining 16 strokes round-over-round, Adam Scott fired a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 during round three of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, jumping 35 spots on the leaderboard up to T26 on 3-under 213.

The Aussie looked lost on day two, swallowing six bogeys and a pair of double bogeys en route to a 8-over 80. He flipped the script completely today by landing twice as many greens in regulation (16) to make it much easier on himself around the greens. This goes in the book as the low round of the day and also his personal best at Sheshan International. He still finds himself 14 strokes off the torrid pace set by Hideki Matsuyama, but another stellar round tomorrow could help him potentially backdoor a top 10 or 15.

Adam Scott took advantage of Moving Day at TPC Kuala Lumpur, styling a 6-under-par 33-33=66, climbing to 11-under 206 with one round to play at the CIMB Classic.

The Aussie took a conventional scoring route today, circling birdies on all four of the par 5s TPCKL has to offer. He picked off three other birdies to offset the lone bogey which came at the par-4 14th hole. At the moment he ranks T17 in driving accuracy and T18 in GIR this week. That consistent ball-striking should keep him right in the mix on Sunday. The 36-year-old currently sits at T7 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress. He's yet to record an eagle but he's circled 17 on the week (5→5→7).

3-seed Adam Scott styled a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's final round of the TOUR Championship to finish up his seventh appearance in the Playoffs finale on 4-under 276, up seven places on the live leaderboard to T7 and matching Sean O'Hair and Si Woo Kim for the low round of the week thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, three players posted better rounds of 64 and Scott finished in a two-way T8.

The 36-year-old won here in 2006, the last edition before the tourney became part of the FedExCup Playoffs. He entered the week off three straight top-5 finishes to begin the postseason and while that looks to come to an end, he will be the only player to record four top 10s. The Aussie posted rounds of 69-71-71 to begin R4 on 1-over (T14), two adrift of the overnight top 10. He split a week-best 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.663 strokes approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 6.250. Scott circled three birdies, each from inside of eight feet, adding a nine-footer for eagle at the par-5 18th, closing the season with a birdie-eagle finish.

Adam Scott bounced back from some front-nine troubles to record a 1-over-par 39-32=71 during the second round of the TOUR Championship, entering the weekend at even-par 140.

The Aussie struggled out of the gates today, recording three bogeys and a double on the front nine. That included a missed 2'11" putt at the par-5 sixth and a water ball at the par-4 eighth. On the bright side, he squeezed in a 39'9" hole out for birdie at the par-4 fifth. Scott recovered nicely after the turn, circling three birdies without dropping another shot. At the end of the day, Scott actually stood still on the leaderboard and he'll enter the weekend within striking distance.

Adam Scott patched together a two-birdie one-bogey 1-under-par 35-36=71 in today's final round of the BMW Championship for a four-day total of 12-under 276, up one place into a five-way T4, 11 adrift of overnight leader and champion Dustin Johnson.

The 36-year-old is the ONLY player to record top-10 finishes in each of the first three Playoffs events, and they happen to be top 5s as well (T4-4-T4). He began the week 5th in the FedExCup standings and bumped two spots to 3rd, thereby maintaining control over his own destiny at East Lake in two weeks. The Aussie posted rounds of 69-69-67-71, equaling his best finish at the BMW (4th in 2007), and records his eighth top 10 of the season in 19 starts, SEVEN of which are top 5s. For the week, he totaled one eagle and 15 birdies against five bogeys and was T1 in greens in regulation at 80.56 percent (58/72).
