Scott: It is four worse this year

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

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.”

CON­FI­DENT: Michael Clarke

SQUAN­DERED: Scott
