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.

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.

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.
Feb 19 - 2:15 PM

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.
