This week's diary from Adam Scott comes just after attending the Titleist TV Shoot at Cog Hill as well as being named to the Presidents Cup. Adam got the good news just before he sat down for a scheduled interview with titleist.com. Watch excerpts from Adam's interview to hear what he had to say about being chosen.
I arrived in Europe last night and will be here for the next couple of weeks practicing. As you probably know, I had a pretty exciting and humbling day on Tuesday when Greg Norman announced that I was chosen for one of his Captain's picks for the Presidents Cup. It was somewhat unexpected and I am grateful for the opportunity. Greg's vote of confidence has given me a real boost and I feel like I can make a contribution in all areas of the event. I have been fortunate enough to play in the last 3 President Cup competitions for the International side and I look very forward to being a part of the team in October. It will be a great experience playing for Greg Norman.
I was at Cog Hill on Wednesday filming a commercial shoot for Titleist. I have to say I wish I was competing this week, the course looks like it's in really good shape and I've always liked the vibe of the windy city! I look forward to getting back there next year.
I wanted to let you know about a very cool promotion for everyone back home in Australia. Starting on September 15th through October 14th, Titleist is running an online competition with the winner getting to play in the Australian Masters Pro-Am with me on November 11th 2009. To register for the competition and to view a listing of the complete rules and prize package, go to www.titleist.com.au when the promotion launches on September 15th. We will also have an announcement on my website in the news section next week.
I'll be back in the US for the Turning Stone Resort Championship in Verona, New York the week of September 28th and then the following week is the Presidents Cup at Harding Park, San Francisco. Looking forward to preparing and getting ready for my next 2 tournaments. I'll be in touch sometime next week.
Until then, take care.
