Adam Scott Is Hurting
Tough year for Adam Scott. ((bubblesandbugs/Flickr)
MOVIE STAR LOOKS, a Tiger-like golf swing and youth doesn’t guarantee success in the fickle game of golf.
Adam Scott knows this all too well after a 2008 season during which he fell from third to 17th in the world rankings. The 28-year-old Australian has suffered from recurring bouts of tonsillitis as well as a break above the little finger of his right hand in May.
A two-time champion, Scott recently missed the cut at the Singapore Open after playing “miserable” and saying he “did not know where the ball was going.”
“I just need to get away and get ready for next year and sort things out,” Scott was quoted as saying in The Straits Times.
Scott said, on the advice of doctors, he would cut back on his travel in 2009 to avoid further health problems.
