Masters profile: Adam Scott

Adam Scott had everyone on the edge of their seats in 2011. Augusta National had not traditionally been an overly happy hunting ground for the Queenslander, with his previous best finish coming back in 2002 (T9), a year where won twice on the European Tour. Scott started the 2011 tournament with a mixed opening round he double bogeyed the first but fought back to 1 under par by the 15th. A late bogey saw him even at the end of Round 1. His second round only had one blemish on it but a 2 under par 70, including an eagle on the par 5 13th Azalea . It was in the third round that Scott found a rhythm that nearly sent people searching through the record books. Six birdies and an eagle had him charging up the leaderboard at speed and but for the bogeys, he could ve carded an 8 under par 64. On the Sunday, he began in a tie for sixth place and edged closer to glory with three birdies and a bogey on the front nine. Three more birdies on 11, 14 and 16 had everyone on the edge of their seats but Scott fell one spot shy of a Green jacket to Charl Schwartzel s birdie barrage. He completed his best career finish in a Major, surpassing his tie for third at the 2006 US PGA Championship. 2011 Rounds: 72-70-67-67 (-12) Final Position: T2 (with Jason Day) Masters History: 2002 T9 2003 – T23 2004 – CUT 2005 T33 2006 T27 2007 T27 2008 T25 2009 – CUT 2010 T18 2011 T2
