Adam Scott

Australian Adam Scott has won the World Golf Championship–Bridgestone Invitational in a sensational display of golf that held off challenges from many of the up-and-coming young guns of the game.

Leading the tournament heading into the final round, Scott went on to finish 17-under-par, winning by four shots over World Number One Luke Donald and American young gun Rickie Fowler with fellow Aussie Jason Day finishing fourth.

Scott went into the final round one shot clear of the chasing pack and walking up the 18thgreen tournament in hand was able to enjoy the moment and his 18thcareer win.

With his new caddie Steve Williams, Scott showed a renewed confidence hitting the fairways in nice fashion, holding his form into the last day of play he shot a convincing round of five-under 65.

With the highlight of shooting four birdies on the back 9 to hold off challengers Scott said, “I feel good and I just had to be patient and pick my moments”.

Scott has not had a win on the US Tour since the Valero Texas Open in 2010.

“To win a World Golf Championship is one of the biggest wins of my career and it is what I set out to do this year, have a real focus on the big events and I think I have done a pretty good job so far to get myself in the hunt”

Caddy, Steve Williams had nothing but praise for Scott stating, “This is the greatest win, day and week of my career. Seeing Adam hit on the range I just knew it would be our day”.

This was Steve Williams’s first win with Scott only after four tournaments on the bag.

“William’s knowledge of the Firestone course was instrumental to this win; he has given me back my confidence,” added Scott.

With Australia’s summer of golf set to be the biggest in recent times, Aussie fans will look forward to seeing Scott home in career high form.

    Great win by Adam Scott. He really seems to be on the improve this year and the broomstick putter is doing the job.

    Adam could be in for a really big finish to the year.
