Update from Adam Scott – The Barclays
Posted: August 27, 2009
It's Thursday morning and just getting ready to head out to Liberty National to tee it for my first round at The Barclays. The course has the most amazing views but more important than that the designers, Bob Cupp and Tom Kite, transformed a toxic waste dump into an unbelievable golf course. The Statue of Liberty is only 1,000 feet away and each hole is positioned for a view of Lady Liberty. I truly enjoy going to new courses and learning about the history of the course and the visions of the designers. My dad and I talk frequently about the courses out on TOUR for our design company and this one is quite unique so it will be discussed a lot! It will be interesting to see how the scores will unfold. Very narrow fairways so you have to be precise and if the winds are up, like they were yesterday for the Pro-Am, then anything can happen. My goal is to qualify for next week at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. I've been working hard so hoping it all comes together this week. It's been a frustrating year but I'm trying not to think of yesterday and rather focus on the present. I need to run but I'll be in touch soon.
Until next time, take care.
