On Tour with Adam Scott

Adam talks about his schedule for the next few weeks, on and off the course, and what aspect of his game he's been focusing on recently.

It’s been an interesting time on and off the golf course for me over the last few weeks. After the great week at the Presidents Cup I played the Chrysler Classic in North Carolina and, to be honest, I was very disappointed in my play, particularly around the greens. I headed to the Amex Championship in San Francisco determined to put things right. However, that didn’t quite work out either, and after getting myself close to the lead early in the third round I putted really poorly for the rest of the tournament and just drifted down the leaderboard. I have to tell you that I am really frustrated with my putting at the moment, but it is just something I have to work out.

After the Amex finished I stayed in San Francisco for 2 days and filmed a TV piece for next years Johnnie Walker Classic which I’ll be defending. Even better for me is that the tournament will be played in Perth, so it’s a home event for me!

From San Francisco I flew to Boston to attend the last day of the Titleist Partners Conference, which is a gathering of a few hundred PGA members put on by my major sponsor, Titleist. By all accounts it was very successful and I enjoyed being part of it, although I’m sure after my short speech the people there realized I’m a player not a speechmaker!

Since then I’ve had a couple of days in London and then on to Switzerland for a few day R&R at my house there, which will be a nice break, although I have a few things to do there to get ready for the Switzerland winter season.

I am heading back to the US next week for the Chrysler event in Tampa, and then to Atlanta for the TOUR Championships – and I am going to try and warm up my putter and see if I can’t finish the US season with another win. During TOUR Championship week we will also be filming some new ads for Titleist and Foot Joy, which is always great fun. A good week on the course combined with some fun off it would really be a fantastic end to my 2005 US Tour season.

I’ll write again after Atlanta, before I head back to Australia.
