“It’s got to be great for him. I hope it’s the boost that gets him back to where he wants to be. I’m sure he must be feeling pretty (pleased) with himself,” Scott said.
On Tuesday at the PGA Championship, which Ogilvy qualified for with his victory, Scott recalled a moment late last year when he was presenting his friend with an award.
“A golf-writing award,” laughed Scott, who gave Ogivly the award during last year’s Australian Open for a column he had written. “It was hilarious. I couldn’t believe it. I was like, ‘Really?’”
Having endured a similar competitive slump previously in his career, Scott said he could appreciate how important last week’s victory was for Ogilvy.
“There is so much that goes on in a golfer’s world other than just getting the club face square and knocking putts in. There’s a lot to manage and it’s different for everybody,” Scott said.
