Adam Scott Needs a Boost
Five years after winning The Players Championship, Scott arrives at the TPC at Sawgrass having missed four consecutive cuts, marking the first time he has missed more than two in a row since joining the PGA Tour in 2003.
As high as No. 3 in the Official World Golf Ranking just last summer, Scott has slid to No. 29.
Scott made as much news for his woes off the course over the last year as he did on it in his native Australia. He was in headlines for dislocating his knee cap, breaking his hand, enduring a breakup with his long-time girlfriend and being linked with actress Kate Hudson.
“He’s had problems with his knee, where he got to favoring it and got a little out of sorts with his swing,' Harmon said. 'He's back to feeling healthy again. He's back to being Adam again. He's had a couple good (practice) sessions. It’s just important for him to have a solid round (Thursday) and see some good things happen to get his confidence back.”
