Over the years, Adam Scott has espoused several pearls of wisdom, such as this one – “If all else fails, birdie the last”

In this feature, we look at some of the most notable thoughts from the Australian –

–          For a tour that tries to follow the sun, it seems we play under water a lot of the time.

–          You Know, writing is really difficult, and it takes a real patience and a skill. I don’t know if I have that. I admire it in others, so much, and I envy it.

–          All I did was listen to my body. And you have to do that sometimes.

–          It’s totally a game of confidence. When you’ve got that confidence, you’ve got to run with it because who knows how long it’s going to last?

–          I don’t know how to digest it all at the moment, but it was incredible. I’m just so proud of myself and everyone around me who’s helped me. [On winning the 2013 Masters Tournament]

–          There’s one guy who inspired a nation of golfers, and that’s Greg Norman. He’s been incredible to me and all the great golfers.

–          You know, I go to work in a great office every day, and the amount of freedom that goes with being a pro golfer on the tour is awesome. So I get to enjoy my weeks off away from the course, and then I get               to go work on some of the best golf courses in the world out here.

–          Journalism classes would have been interesting to me.
