Scott Wants to Become Masters Great

Adam-Scott-300x336Adam Scott has set his sights on becoming a favourite among Unibet golf betting fans by following the lead of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson and writing his name into Masters folklore.

In April, the 33-year-old held his nerve to beat former champion Angel Cabrera in a play-off and become the first Australian to claim the Green Jacket at Augusta.

It was his maiden major title and went some way towards making up for his 2012 Open heartache, when he was four strokes clear with four holes remaining only to bogey all of them and lose the title by a stroke to Ernie Els.

Now Scott has tasted major success, he wants to be greedy like the greats of the game. He believes Augusta is the perfect place to get his fill.

“I’ve really felt the last few years my level of understanding of that golf course grew and then obviously culminated in winning this year,” Scott said.

“I’m really looking forward to going back and I feel I have an opportunity to develop even more there and become a dominant player like a Phil Mickelson or a Tiger Woods (who have seven wins between them) there.

“I have the opportunity; I’m not saying I’m going to. But I’ve got a bit of momentum going so I’m really looking forward to that.”

Scott became just the sixth man to complete the Australian Triple Crown when he added the PGA Championship to his Masters and Open wins earlier this month.

The Adelaide-born star moved on to defend his Masters title at Royal Melbourne, which he managed to do by two shots from Matt Kuchar.

Scott will head to Sydney for the Open next month aiming to become the first player to win the Australian PGA, Masters and Open in the same year since 2005.
