Adam Scott Final round press conference transcript

ADAM SCOTT Q. Obviously a tough way to finish but hopefully it won&apost ruin what&aposs been an amazing summer that it&aposs been really great to see you here for. ADAM SCOTT: No, not at all. I&aposm disappointed to make an error at the last and open the door for Rory. I was kind of trying to keep it closed all day the best I could. Nothing was going my way on the greens today. I could have put this thing away I think early on if the putter was behaving how it should have, like it did the rest of the week but I just misjudged into the last and a player as good as Rory is going to take that opportunity. Q. What do you put the putter down to today? ADAM SCOTT: Just slightly misread a few, just over-played the break. I missed a lot of putts on the high side. He did good putts and I just didn&apost quite have the eye in. It always gets a little trickier on a Sunday. Q. Is it golf, when you think you might have it all under control it can get to you and bite you like that? ADAM SCOTT: Yeah, absolutely it does it on a daily basis to everyone out here. It was going to be a tough day no matter what and Rory made his move and I just couldn&apost knock in the putts you expect to make. I&aposve made them all week but slight mis-reads and not quite the right pace, didn&apost match. Q. Adam, when was the last time you played four weeks in a row? ADAM SCOTT: Too long ago [LAUGHS]. Q. Mate, in terms of the whole year though, when you look back in a couple of weeks at the year as a whole, what are you going to be thinking about then? ADAM SCOTT: Yeah, it&aposs been a great year. Obviously I didn&apost want to finish like that. If I didn&apost play any good the first few days and played great today and finished second I&aposd be pretty chuffed going into Christmas, so that&aposs how I should look at it. I&aposll get over this tonight and look forward to a few weeks rest and get ready to go next year. Q. You&aposre a pretty calm guy Adam, are you feeling pain at the moment? Are you hurting about what happened? ADAM SCOTT: Yeah, I just made an error on the last, misjudged the wind and hit too much club into the last, so that&aposs the way it goes. I felt I did everything right. I was concerned about how I was going to hit it today because I haven&apost been swinging the club very well for the last two weeks and I played really nicely and the putter didn&apost behave itself [LAUGHS]. So it&aposs just the way golf is. I&aposm gutted. I felt like I never had a better chance to win the Aussie Open but it was tight the whole back nine. Rory played so good. Q. Thank you Adam, thank you for your time. You&aposve been very generous with us all. ADAM SCOTT: Thank you.
