Adam Scott, statements

Australian Adam Scott has reminded everyone that golf can throw up some good surprises when you least expect it, even after a completely missed shot. The 42-year-old former world number one first conceded a double-bogey at hole number 11, after a nasty scratch at the edge of the green.

Annoyed by his mistake worthy of a mediocre amateur, the Adelaide golfer missed the fairway on his next face-off and barely managed to grab a piece of green on his second shot. But golf is a sport apart and Scott returned his putt from twenty meters for an unexpected birdie on this badly boarded par 4!
