Adam Scott Wins

November 11, 2013 by  

Adam Scott Wins, Adam Scott hit the iron that all but secured his first Australian PGA Championship so crisply it sounded like a gun shot. By the time the echo had subsided at Royal Pines, the engravers were already at work putting his name on the Joe Kirkwood Cup.

The US Masters champion unleashed a withering clinic of tournament golf in the final round to gap the field and win the only Australian major title that had previously evaded him.

Scott finished on 14 under, with rounds of 65, 67, 71 and 67 – four shots clear of Rickie Fowler (68), who simply couldn’t sprint when Scott charged for home.

The pressure to perform in his home-town event was immense, but with all the assurance of the only Australian to have slipped on a green jacket from Augusta, Scott stepped up his game when it mattered most.

Three-and-a-half rounds of solid, if not spectacular, golf had the Queenslander leading at 10 under – one clear of playing partner Fowler and Victorian trainee Jack Wilson midway through the final day.

But a storm was brewing, on a number of fronts. Lightning and rain rumbled in, sending the players scurrying for cover and causing a delay of 90 minutes.

What had been an intriguing game of chess when play was halted become a whitewash when it resumed. Scott had threatened to produce something special all week and now it was time to stamp his authority.

He stepped onto the fairway on the par-five 12th and smoked a 220-metre iron into the green. It breezed past the hole by a whisker and settled 30 centimetres away, leaving a simple tap-in for eagle.
