Scott makes Bermuda return

LOGAN WHITTON/AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE ADAM Scott will be returning to Bermuda to snap a three-year title drought.

MIAMI (AFP) — Australian Adam Scott returns to Bermuda this week trying to snap a three-year title drought on the same course where he won a showdown of major winners 10 years ago.

The 43-year-old from Adelaide will be a favorite when the US PGA Tour’s Bermuda Championship tees off on Thursday at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton.

“I don’t find pressure like that,” Scott said.

“You can feed off that expectation a little bit.”

It’s the same layout where 2013 Masters champion Scott won the 2013 Grand Slam of Golf, a 36-hole matchup of the year’s four major winners that folded after 2014. The Aussie beat US Open winner Justin Rose of England by two strokes.

“It’s great to be back. I was excited to come here,” Scott said.

“Whenever you’re coming back to a place where you’ve had good results, there’s a positive vibe. I had a great experience here on and off the golf course the last time.”

World No. 45 Scott is playing in the event, part of the PGA’s fall schedule aimed at finalizing tour status for next year, in hopes of qualifying for a few more events after missing last season’s playoffs.

“I feel like I’ve played fairly solid all year and not got results,” Scott said.

“I’m not going to get results being on the couch at home.”

“I don’t expect to be given invites all over the place next year. It would be so much better to go out and win a tournament this week and kind of get some result out of some of the work I’ve put into the game and the changes I’ve made this year and go into next year full of confidence.”

Scott, who managed four top-10 showings in the 2022-23 season, has 31 worldwide wins, including 14 on the PGA Tour, but his most recent victory came in 2020 at Riviera.

Scott will return to his homeland for the Australian PGA Championship in two weeks at Brisbane and compete in the Australian Open the following week in Sydney.
