The Bold and the Beautiful.....

I choose this title for this post because players who played bold during the weekend didn’t come out on top it was the beautiful Adam Scott who was crowned the winner.

It was a tough weekend for those Tiger Woods fans.  He put on a quite a show this weekend and was one putt away from playing Adam Scott in a playoff.  From back pain, to missed putts it was a difficult weekend for Woods.  Having my two favourite players come so close to a playoff was just about all I could handle.  I am pleased to announce that the handsome Adam Scott was victorious at Barclay Golf Club.

Scott played bogey-free at Liberty National, making only two birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66 that put him in the mix of a crowded leader board at the top. Turns out he was the only one who stayed there.

"I can't believe it, to be honest," Scott said after winning the FedEx Cup playoffs opener. "I just played a good round today and I came in and really didn't think it had a chance. But obviously, things went my way a lot out there."

Woods, Woodland and Rose shared second place with Graham DeLaet of Canada, whose 65 matched the low score of the final round. DeLaet will move up to No. 9 in the Presidents Cup standings, and with one week before qualifying ends, is in good shape to make the International team.  Only the top 100 players in the FedEx Cup advance to the second playoff event next week outside Boston.

Scott rose from No. 4 to a career-best No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Adam Scott, of Australia, hits out of a bunker on the sixth hole Sunday.
