SCOTT FURIOUS AFTER LOSS

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.

FURYK JOINS PLAYERS COMMITEE

The Player Advisory Committee is a reputed body and golfers selected to represent it have a lot of weight and importance.

Jim Furyk has just been added to the 16 man team and it is quite an achievement for the golfer to share the position with some of the legends of the golfing circuit.

The Committee is mainly concerned with the making of policies and deals for the PGA tour and managing the events of the PGA championship. Jim will basically be taking the chair of Zach Johnson and will represent the Committee as its Chairman.

The beauty of this year’s selection is that it has a number of new faces and this basically reflects the fact that there will be changes made to the existing policies and new ideas might be incorporated as well.

Furyk is excited about his first meeting officially with all the members of the Committee and hopes that it turns out as planned without much confusion. If harmony prevails in the start of the Committee’s proceedings, everything else will be set right.

Former and prior members are definitely going to help the new members in the choices and decision and will put in positive criticism and feedback to any new decisions and ideas that will be put forth in the general body meetings.

With precision and perfection he needs to master the art of executing his role as the chairman of the Player’s Advisory Committee, without letting it get in the way of his game – according to the latest US Open golf betting odds online, Furyk remains one of the favourites to land the famous Green Jacket this time around.
