Adam Derek Scott (born 16 July 1980) is an Australian professional golfer who plays mainly on the PGA Tour. He is currently the World No. 1 ranked golfer, as of 19 May 2014.[2] He has won 27 professional tournaments around the world (3 being unofficial money events), on many of golf's major tours. His biggest win to date was the 2013 Masters Tournament, his first major championship and the first Masters won by an Australian in its 77-year history.[3] Other significant wins include the 2004 Players Championship and the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He was the runner-up in the 2012 Open Championship, leading by four strokes with four holes to play before bogeying all of them to lose the title by a stroke to Ernie Els.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Scott was born in Adelaide, South Australia and moved with his family at the age of nine to the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Where he attended Matthew Flinders Anglican College. They then settled on the Gold Coast, Queensland in 1993. Initially at The Southport School, an Anglican boys' school on the Gold Coast, he completed his high school education at The Kooralbyn International School, also on the Gold Coast, where he undertook extra subjects in golf. He was a member of the Golf Australia National Squad. He later attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).

In April 2014, Scott married Marie Kojzar, a Swedish architect, in a small ceremony in the Bahamas. Scott and Kojzar had previously been in a long-term relationship in the early to mid 2000s, before splitting up and then reuniting in 2013.[1]

He had previously been in a relationship with former tennis World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic in 2010. They separated in September of that year.[5] The pair reunited in 2011, before splitting up one year later.[6]

Scott is the touring professional at The Palms Golf Course Sanctuary Cove, where he resides while in Australia, located on the Gold Coast, Queensland. For tax purposes, Scott is resident in Switzerland.[7]

Scott is also an avid surfer.[8]

Amateur career[edit]

Scott won the Australian Boys' Amateur in 1997 and 1998.[9] He was a member of the Golf Australia National Squad.

Professional career[edit]

Early professional career[edit]

Scott turned professional midway through the 2000 season after some impressive performances early in the year on the European Tour. He earned his card for the 2001 European Tour season in just eight starts as a professional, his best result being a tie for sixth at the Linde German Masters. Scott also made a handful of appearances on the PGA Tour but made only one cut in six events.

Scott's playing career took off in 2001, his first full year as a professional golfer, when he won the European Tour's Alfred Dunhill Championship in Johannesburg, South Africa for his very first professional title. This event was Scott's first start of the year and was co-sanctioned by the European and Sunshine Tours. He beat Justin Rose to the title by one stroke.[10] Scott had three other top-3 finishes throughout the season and went on to finish 13th in the Order of Merit in his first season.

The following year in 2002, Scott enjoyed a very successful season, with two emphatic victories on the European Tour and a final position of seventh on the Order of Merit. His first win of the year was a six-shot victory at the Qatar Masters. Later in the year, Scott obliterated the field in the Scottish PGA Championship, shooting a final round of 63 to win by ten shots.[11] This is still the biggest ever margin of victory he has achieved in his career. In between these victories, Scott made his debut at the Masters Tournament, where he finished a very respectable tied 9th.

2003–2004[edit]

In 2003, Scott enjoyed a good run at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship where he went all the way to the semi finals before losing to eventual champion Tiger Woods on the 19th hole. He had previously beaten Bernhard Langer, Rocco Mediate, Kevin Sutherland and Jay Haas en route to the semi's, before defeating fellow Australian Peter Lonard 1up in the consolation match. In August 2003, Scott won his fourth European Tour title at the Scandinavian Masters by two strokes over Nick Dougherty. A month later he followed it up with his first victory in the United States on the PGA Tour at the inaugural Deutsche Bank Championship. The win came in his 34th career start on the PGA Tour. He shot a course record 62 in the second round to lead by two at the halfway stage and went on to win by four from Rocco Mediate.[12] At the end of the year he made his first appearance on the International team at the President's Cup, contributing three points out of five, en route to a 17–17 tie.

2004 Players Championship win[edit]

Scott had further success on the PGA Tour in 2004 where he won the flagship event of the tour, The Players Championship. Scott had held a two stroke lead going down the 18th, but found the water hazard with his approach to the green. However, he sealed the title with a 40-yard up and down, which included a ten footer for bogey to win by a shot from Pádraig Harrington. He became the youngest ever winner of The Players Championship at 23 years old.[13] Three months later, Scott collected this third PGA Tour win, with victory at the Booz Allen Classic. He equalled the tournament total record at 21 under par to win by four from Charles Howell III.[14]

2005–2007[edit]

Early in 2005 he won the Nissan Open, but as the tournament was shortened to 36 holes due to heavy rain, it is not recognised as an official victory. Sharing the halfway lead with Chad Campbell, they played off to determine the winner, with Scott winning on the first playoff hole. As a result, he reached the top ten of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time in his career. He has since spent over 220 weeks in the top-10 of the rankings.[15][16][17] Several months later, Scott won his fifth European Tour title with victory at the Johnnie Walker Classic in Beijing, China. He shot a course record 63 on the way to a three shot victory. Scott also won the Singapore Open later in 2005 on the Asian Tour by seven strokes over Lee Westwood.

Scott played less frequently on the European Tour from 2006 onwards, focusing more on the PGA Tour. He had a successful year, recording one victory alongside three runners up finishes and three-third places. He finished tied third at the PGA Championship, which was his best showing at a major championship. He then went on later in the year to finish tied second at the WGC-American Express Championship, finishing eight strokes behind Tiger Woods. At the end of the year, Scott won the season-ending Tour Championship by three strokes for his fourth career PGA Tour win and finished third on the PGA Tour money list for 2006.[18]

The 2007 season started for Scott with a second place finish at the season opening Mercedes Benz Championship in Hawaii behind Vijay Singh. After this, Scott reached his career high ranking of world number three. He then won for the fifth time on the PGA Tour, the week before the Masters, at the Shell Houston Open. After hitting his tee shot into the water on the 72nd hole, he made a 48-foot par putt to seal a three stroke victory over Stuart Appleby and Bubba Watson.[19] He then played consistently for the rest of the year, qualifying for all four FedEx Cup playoff events and finishing 10th in the final standings.

Scott during the 2008 Players Championship

2008–2010[edit]

In 2008 he played enough events on the European Tour to qualify for playing on the Order of Merit for the first time since 2005. Scott endured a somewhat difficult season in 2008 with injury and illness, but he managed to win once on each tour. In January 2008 he started off the year in fine style by winning his sixth career title on the European Tour at the Qatar Masters. Scott carded a brilliant 11-under-par final round of 61, which was both a course record and personal best round. He started his final round three shots behind the overnight leader and won the tournament by finishing three shots ahead of Henrik Stenson.[20]

In April 2008, Scott won the EDS Byron Nelson Championship in a playoff against Ryan Moore. Scott holed a nine-foot putt to make the playoff on the 72nd hole. The playoff started with Moore and Scott making pars on the first two extra holes before Scott holed a dramatic 48-foot birdie putt at the third extra hole for the victory.[21] At the 2008 U.S. Open, World No. 1 Tiger Woods, World No. 2 Phil Mickelson and World No. 3 Scott were all paired together in the first two rounds of the tournament. Woods won in a playoff, Mickelson finished in 18th, and Scott finished in 26th. He ended the year 39th on the money list.

Scott's form dipped badly in 2009 as he dropped out of the top 50 in the world rankings and finished the year outside of the top 100 on the PGA Tour money list. He finished 108th on the money list which is his worst ever placing in his career. In 19 events on the PGA Tour, he missed the cut 10 times, with his only top 10 finish coming at the Sony Open in Hawaii in January. He did however win at the end of year in December at his home championship, the Australian Open, for his first victory on home soil in his career.

Despite a quiet couple of years Scott won his seventh career PGA Tour title at the Valero Texas Open in May 2010, prevailing in a 36 hole long Sunday to finish one stroke ahead of Swede Fredrik Jacobson. It was Scott's first PGA Tour victory for two years.[22] He qualified and played in all the FedEx Cup playoffs, finishing 27th at the Tour Championship. In November, Scott won the Barclays Singapore Open for the third time in his career, having previously triumphed in 2005 and 2006. It was also his seventh title on the European Tour.

2011[edit]

Scott achieved his best finish at a major championship when he finished in a tie for second place at the 2011 Masters Tournament alongside compatriot Jason Day, two strokes behind the winner Charl Schwartzel. Scott had held the sole lead of the tournament while playing the 71st hole, but four birdies in a row from Schwartzel meant Scott fell short by two strokes.[23]

WGC-Bridgestone Invitational win[edit]

With Tiger Woods injured at the U.S. Open, and The Open Championship in 2011, Woods's caddy Steve Williams caddied for Scott. After Woods fired Williams on 20 July, Williams became Scott's permanent caddy. The two enjoyed their first win together on 7 August 2011 when Scott triumphed at the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, earning him his first career World Golf Championship and eighth title overall on both of the main tours. He beat Luke Donald and Rickie Fowler by four strokes after a bogey-free final round of 65, becoming the 20th different player to win a World Golf Championship event.[24] Scott returned to the world's top 10 for the first time in over two years after his win, re-entering at ninth.[25]

In attempting to become the first player to win a major the week after winning a tour event since Tiger Woods in 2007, Scott finished tied seventh at the PGA Championship. Scott was one of six players to post two top 10 finishes at majors in 2011. He then held the 36 hole lead at the season ending Tour Championship, before rounds of 74-68 led to a tied sixth finish. Scott ended the year number 16 in the standings. In November 2011, Scott was one of five Australians in the President's Cup team that lost to the United States in Australia. Scott ended with a 2–3–0 record.

2012[edit]

Scott started the year later than usual, not making an appearance until 19 February at the Northern Trust Open, where he finished in a tie for 17th. In April, Scott enjoyed his second consecutive top-10 at the Masters Tournament when he finished T8th. He shot a final round 66, which included a hole-in-one at the 16th hole, to advance up the leaderboard on the final day. In the years second major championship, Scott had his best result at the U.S. Open with a tie for 15th at the Olympic Club. He shot three consecutive rounds of 70 in rounds two, three and four. Then in the build-up to The Open Championship, Scott finished in third at the AT&T National.

Near-miss at the 2012 Open Championship[edit]

At the 2012 Open Championship, Scott equalled the course record for Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club at an Open Championship when he shot a six-under-par round of 64 to lead by one stroke after the first round.[26] This was then matched by American Brandt Snedeker in the second round, to lead Scott by one stroke going into the weekend after Scott had recorded a round of 67 with four birdies and one bogey. In the third round, Scott shot a 68 to take a four stroke lead into the final round, ahead of Brandt Snedeker and Graeme McDowell.

In the final round, Scott's birdie on the 14th gave him a cushion of four shots with four holes to play. On the 15th, Scott made bogey after he pulled his approach shot into a greenside bunker. At the 16th he overhit his approach shot onto the back of the green to leave a lengthy putt for birdie. He missed the putt by about five feet and could not convert the short par putt. As Scott was playing the 17th, Ernie Els had birdied the final hole to become the leader in the clubhouse at seven under, one shot behind Scott. On the 17th, from the middle of the fairway, Scott overhit his approach shot and landed in some thick rough at the back of the green. He could only pitch out to 20 feet away and missed the resulting putt to record his third bogey and drop into a tie for the lead with Els.

At the final hole, needing a birdie to win or a par to get into a playoff with Els, Scott found a bunker off the tee and his ball ended up tight underneath the lip. He was only able to pitch out sideways. For his third stroke he played a brilliant iron shot to leave himself with an eight-foot par putt to take the championship to a playoff. Scott narrowly missed the putt on the outside edge of the hole, resulting in another bogey to finish the round. Scott shot a final round of 75 to finish at six under, one stroke behind the champion Ernie Els.[27]

Scott's epic collapse down the home stretch was compared to many other famous golfing collapses down the years including fellow countryman Greg Norman at the 1996 Masters.[28] After the round Scott said that his finish was down to finding some bad positions on the course, rather than nerves. He also said "I'm very disappointed but I played so beautifully for most of the week I really shouldn't let this bring me down. I know I've let a really great chance slip through my fingers today, but somehow I'll look back and take the positives from it."[27] Despite the finish, Scott equalled his second best ever performance at a major championship, alongside his tied second at the 2011 Masters and he returned to the world's top 10, at number six.

Rest of 2012[edit]

Scott's first appearance after The Open Championship was at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, where he attempted to defend his title from the previous year. He ended the week in a tie for 45th place. The following week, Scott was again in the mix at the PGA Championship, entering the final round in the penultimate grouping, four shots behind the leader Rory McIlroy. In good conditions though, Scott shot an over par 73 to drop back into a final position of T11th.

On 18 November, Scott fired a bogey-free final round at Kingston Heath in the Melbourne Sandbelt, to win the Australian Masters for the first time. He trailed defending champion Ian Poulter by one going into the final round, but shot a 67, including a birdie on the last, to don the "Gold Jacket" for Masters champion.[29]

2013[edit]

Scott opened the season later than most, with his first event coming at the Northern Trust Open, well into February of that year. He finished the event T10th with three rounds under par. He then played the two World Golf Championships consecutively, losing at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in the opening round 2&1 to Tim Clark. In the following WGC-Cadillac Championship, Scott fired the low round of the week on the final day to jump from T19 to T3 behind Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker. His last event before the Masters, was at the Tampa Bay Championship where he finished T30.[30]

2013 Masters[edit]

At the 2013 Masters Tournament, Scott emerged from the chasing pack on the final day to enter into a tie for the lead heading into the 72nd hole. Scott proceeded to birdie the 18th from a considerable distance, prompting wild celebrations as he looked to have won the title. However, former champion Ángel Cabrera produced an excellent approach and subsequently also birdied the 72nd hole to tie Scott for the lead at −9, leading to a sudden-death playoff. Both players parred the first hole (18) with Cabrera inches away from birdie. On the second hole (10), Cabrera once again missed his birdie putt by inches, leaving Scott a 12-foot birdie putt for the championship, which Scott holed.[31] It was Scott's first major championship and marked the first time an Australian has won the Masters.[32] It was also seen by many as redemption for his failure to win the previous year's Open Championship.[33]

Scott's victory at the Masters moved him to No. 3 in the Official World Golf Ranking, equalling his career high ranking. Scott's win received some controversy as he won using a belly putter, being the first winner of the Masters to do so. On 29 November 2012, it was announced by the USGA and R&A, golf's two governing bodies, that belly putters/anchor putters would be banned from competition effective on 1 January 2016. It was not against the rules for Scott to use the belly putter for the 2013 Masters, as he has until 1 January 2016 to halt use.[34]

Rest of 2013[edit]

Scott had a disappointing U.S. Open, finishing in a tie for 45th place. He then had another strong showing at the Open Championship, taking a one-stroke lead heading into the back nine on the final day before eventually finishing in a tie for third. The final major of 2013, the PGA Championship, saw Scott finish in a tie for fifth. At the first event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, The Barclays, Scott finished with a 66 (−5) final round to win over four players by one stroke and move to number two in the World Ranking, a career high.[35]

In October, Scott won the 2013 PGA Grand Slam of Golf event in which the four major winners of that year compete. A month later Scott would win in his native Australia, when he won the Australian PGA Championship, his fourth career victory on the PGA Tour of Australasia. This was quickly followed by winning the Australian Masters on 16 November, at Royal Melbourne, finishing 14 shots under par. The following week Scott would garner victory in the team portion of ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf, with fellow Australian Jason Day. The team shot a combined 17-under-par. Day won the individual championship at 10-under-par. Scott was runner up to Rory McIlroy in the Emirates Australian Open on 1 December 2013. He led by one stroke going into the final hole but a bogey by Scott and a birdie by McIlroy saw a two shot swing and victory to the Northern Irishman. Scott would finish 2013 as the World's #2 ranked golfer.

2014: Chasing and earning the #1 ranking[edit]

In March 2014, Scott tied the course record at Bay Hill Club & Lodge, when he shot a 10-under-par 62 during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He went on to finish third in the tournament behind the winner Matt Every and Keegan Bradley after a poor four-over-par 76 in the final round.[36]

On May 19, 2014, Scott took over as the World's #1 ranked golfer.[37] Scott is the 17th golfer to be ranked number one since official rankings began. He is also the second Australian and the first since Greg Norman in 1998. A week after becoming world #1, Scott strengthened his ranking with a win at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, being the first person to win all four Texas-based PGA Tour events.

Team golf career[edit]

Scott has represented Australia in the World Cup in 2002 and 2013 and was a member of the International Team at the Presidents Cup in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013. Despite making six appearances on the International team, he has yet to play on a winning team.
