For my loyal viewers you know my love for Adam Scott is pretty strong. Being able to watch him an extra week at the Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda made this shortened week of work bearable…having him win was the icing on the cake. Four shots back with 10 holes to play and coming out on top shows you the grind and work ethic this famous golfer has shown us time and time again this season. What’s even more impressive is the fact that he went bogey-free to shoot a seven under 64 which was a course record. Not too shabby of a day on the course Mr. Scott.
Rose shot 67-69 to finish second at six under while PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner (69-70) was third at three-under and Padraig Harrington, filling in for British Open winner Phil Mickelson, shot 74-71 to round out the field at three over.
"I'm thrilled to come out on top. It felt like a long round out there but I was happy with the score," Scott said. "Standing on the 11th tee, didn't look like a score like that was going to be possible, but I played very well and managed to slowly claw away at Justin."
Starting three shots back of Rose and dealing with tropical rain, Scott jumped out of the blocks early with a birdie on the opening hole to pull within two. Another birdie on the third hole pulled the Australian within one shot and right into the thick of the action. But just as Scott was breathing down his neck, the Englishman lifted and rattled off four straight birdies on holes four through seven. This is only a small review of the dynamic game these two put on for us on Wednesday.
He claimed more than $600,000 and the pink jacket for the champion. Way to go Adam!!!
The 33-year-old now has his sights on the three major Australian tournaments and the World Cup, also to be held in Australia. Good Luck!!!
