Australian golfer Adam Scott is furious with himself for throwing away the lead at the World Golf Championship: Cadillac Championships in the weekend after being in the lead for almost the better part of the tournament, slamming his performance in one of the most prestigious tournaments in the PGA Tour calendar as unacceptable.
When Scott came to tee off at the famous TPC Blue Monster, he was still within the top five and by the 16th hole; he still had enough reasons to be happy in spite of throwing away several good scoring chances.
But after 45 minutes, his chances of securing the title were all but gone when he hit two consecutive bogeys and then hit the water body for a double bogey. This collapse left him at a distant T-14 position with a score of two over 74, when he was nine points adrift of the leader Bubba Watson at that time.
And the world number 11 Adam Scott slammed his performance in the latter stages of the event as something of a nightmare, stating that he was feeling good at the start of the 16th but even he failed to convince himself to what happened afterwards. Scott did, however, say that there was no excuse for his below par performance in the latter stages, and added that he was feeling tires, weak and loose as well.
He went on to add that the last three holes would probably give him nightmares for the rest of his career but he was still hopeful that he would be able to pull off a strong finish ahead of the Masters next month but he failed to do even that.
But Adam Scott can take heart from the fact that he managed to hold on to some of the better hitters till the latter stages of the event, which should give him confidence ahead of the Masters.
