Adam Scott appeared to be smiling his way to an Open Championship last year, but let it get away.
Adam Scott is a wonderfully talented man who’s been pounding on the door of a major title but has yet to get in.
He’s won two big professional events, the 2004 Players Championship and the 2011 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
He’s had eight top-10 finishes in majors since 2000 and last July appeared to have finally achieved that goal of winning one when he led the Open Championship by five shots with five to play.
But he let that get away, and Ernie Els graciously accepted the title.
He has the kind of swing that young players love to copy.
If he ever finds that key, he has the game to play with the two guys at the top.
