Adam Scott Has Meltdown

Adam Scott Has Meltdown

The British Open was a tough experience for Adam Scott. For most of his game, he seemed to be in control of the situation, but things eventually took a turn for the worse.

With just four holes to go, Scott was leading the tournament by four strokes. The birdie he made on the 14th hole extended his lead but surprisingly, he shot a bogey on each of the last four holes. This unfortunate series of events gave Ernie Els his second British Open championship.

Scott may be comforted in knowing that other great players agreed that Royal Lytham and St. Anne’s was really a tough and difficult course. Tiger Woods even said that the venue was ‘almost not playable’ due to the sand and rough rings throughout the course. Woods, himself, had a triple bogey on his 6th hole, while Graeme McDowell also made a very bad shot on his 11th hole. Overall, though, some of the best golfers in the world made the ‘almost not playable’ golf course into ‘an excitingly playable’ one.

One of the rewards for the British Open championship that Scott missed out on was an invitation to the Masters tournament next year. But he is a gifted player, endowed with a superior golf swing, a cool temperament, and an excellent consistency in hitting golf balls. No doubt he will grab a major someday.

Adam Scott’s wins to date are a 2004 Players Championship, a 2006 Tour Championship and a 2011 World Gold Championship.
