Adam Scott UpdateAfter wrapping up a busy season in the United States, Adam prepares to finish the year with several international tournaments and some R&R
Well, my last few events in America did not quite produce the results I was hoping for, but I felt that my game was in pretty reasonable shape and I certainly felt that my putting improved, which has given me a lot of confidence leading into my last few events for the year.
After The TOUR Championship I stayed in Atlanta to film the new FootJoy ads which were, as always, a lot of fun. For me it is a different way to spend a couple of days and now I can't wait to see the final results when the ads go to air.
From Atlanta I went to Naples for the Shark Shootout. We had brilliant weather for the week and my partner (Fred Couples) and I got ourselves into position to win. We just just didn't get the job done on the last day. We were pretty disappointed with the end result, but in truth we just didn't hit our approach shots close enough the last 9 holes to make enough birdies. Whilst it is a fairly relaxed event I can tell you that by Sunday everyone is dead serious and trying to win - we sure were and getting close but not finishing it off is not a good feeling.
I have been at home in Australia the last few days, having a little R&R and playing a golf day at my Australian home club Sanctuary Cove. I've done a little surfing with my mate Nev, played a little tennis with a couple of my buddies here which is VERY competitive, and caught up with my family, so it's been a great few days.
Off to the Australian Open now. I have only played the Moonah Links course once - and only a few holes then - so it will be interesting to see what pans out this week. That part of the world has really unpredictable weather which is going to play a huge factor in how the tournament goes. The course has been built specifically to host this tournament and I'm told if the weather gets rough then it is going to be really difficult. I'm confident going in that my game is good enough to produce another win and I'm focusing on getting off to a good start and being involved from day one.
I will head to South Africa straight after the Open for the Nedbank event and then come back to Melbourne for the MasterCard Masters. With the flying time to and from South Africa, and the airline schedules, it's a pretty hectic couple of weeks. I've lost in a playoff at MasterCard tournament twice in the last three years so I figure that maybe 2005 it will be my turn to get the trophy.
I am very keen to finish the year with another win and get some last minute world ranking points. After that I am going to put my feet up back in Queensland and just enjoy a few weeks off over Christmas. A little more surfing and tennis, some golf and a good bit of Christmas cheer!
