Scott: It is four worse this year
ADAM SCOTT has revealed he was more disappointed not to win this year’s Open Championship than last year’s, when he squandered a four-shot lead with four holes to play.
Scott bogeyed each of the last four at Lytham in 2012 to lose out by one to Ernie Els, but the Australian rates his share of third place at Muirfield last month as a greater missed opportunity.
“I was probably more disappointed at the Open this year than last,” the 33-year-old said ahead of this week’s US PGA Championship at Oak Hill.
“I worked really hard to get myself in a position with nine holes to go, because I got off to a slow start on Sunday, and I felt that I had a bit of momentum going my way.
“In the space of about 45 minutes, to go from leading to not even having a chance on the 16th tee was more disappointing, probably more so than at Lytham.”
