At 19, in the 2000 Greg Norman Holden International in Sydney, his 63 was a record 10-under par score for an amateur on the European Tour.

The six-time Presidents Cup player’s victory at the 2011 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational was founded on an opening 62 at Firestone.

In 2013, Scott won the US Masters in an enthralling last day of golf. In one of the most exciting finishes to a major tournament in recent history, Scott sunk a 25-foot birdie on the final hole and finished tied on -9 with Angel Cabrera. On the second sudden death play-off hole, he held a 12-foot putt to become the first Australian to win the coveted green winner’s jacket.

Scott Masters







In the next chapter of Scott’s golf career, he never finished worse than T16th.

On May 19th, Scott arrived at the top of golf’s rankings and he was ranked number 1 in the ranking for the next 11 weeks.

The Australian has also been agonisingly close to winning the Open Championship on a few occasions now. At Royal Lytham in 2012 Scott surrendered a four shot lead with four holes to play by bogeying them all. With Ernie Els making a late birdie, Scott lost by one.

At Muirfield in 2015, Scott led from the front on the final days only to falter at the final hurdle. A late surge from Phil Mickleson meant the Australian suffered heartbreak once more.
