In what turned into a Sunday shootout with one of the game’s fiercest head-to-head competitors, Titleist staffer Adam Scott ousted Ian Poulter to fulfil a childhood dream by winning the Australian Masters.
The 32-year-old Australian, who finished four shots clear on 17-under at Kingston Heath Golf Club, ended a 15-month winless drought since claiming his biggest victory-to-date at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
After slipping on the tournament’s gold jacket that he has lusted after since a young boy, Scott says he is now determined to get fitted for another come April 14, 2013.
“This is a tournament I have wanted to win since I was a kid and it’s great to finally achieve that,” said the World No.5.
“Maybe I can start a theme of winning jackets and turn it green next year.”
Despite the windy conditions, Scott managed to find 69.44% of the fast, running fairways in Melbourne and averaged 27 putts per round wielding his broom putter.
“Ian and I played great the last two days - it was the highest standard of golf there is,” he added. “That also makes it very satisfying to have it out with a world class player and come out on top.”
Scott was also sporting FJ Sport footwear and FJ StaSof glove.
