After years of being labeled a prodigy, winning dozens of tournaments worldwide, and generating tons of hype, Scott finally had a chance to back it all up by winning his first major title.
Unfortunately, it was not to be last month at Royal Lytham & St Annes. If you're a golf fan, you probably don't need to be reminded that the Aussie blew a four stroke lead in the final four holes to lose to Ernie Els by one.
In his only tournament since that crushing defeat, Scott finished tied for 45th, unsuccessfully defending his title at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
If anyone can get a player to rise to the occasion and bounce back, though, it's probably Scott's caddie, Stevie Williams. He knows a thing or two about winning majors, having caddied for Tiger Woods for many years.
Prediction: Nothing recently has indicated Scott has recovered from the heartbreak at Lytham, but who could blame him?
It would be a wonderful comeback story if Scott somehow pulled it out this week, but I just don't see it. Sadly, a missed cut will be his fate.
