Adam Scott Proudly Changes First Five Nappies (Diapers) On Baby Bo.

After a lengthy break Aussie Adam Scott has returned to competition at this week’s WGC – Cadillac Championship at Trump Doral.

During his time away the former Masters winner proudly became a father to a daughter Bo Vera on 15th February.

And Scott was teased his prowess in changing the nappies (or diapers for our US followers) on baby Bo.

“I changed the first five nappies so I’m really proud of myself,” he said smiling.

“Of course, I didn’t time them but I’m pretty pleased as I got them changed quite quickly.

“But I have to say it was hard leaving my wife Marie and the baby back home in Australia and travel here to the States, as the baby’s still far too young to travel.

“Though I was also getting itchy feet just a couple of weeks before her birth but then all of a sudden that changed, so it’s been an incredible experience for us both and Marie doing just great as a mother.

“So hopefully when Bo is old enough to travel they can join me over here but for the time being I will only get to see her and Marie via Facetime.”

And Scott was teased if he will change as a father in his dealings with the media and lose that affable laid-back Australian nature that has long been his tremendous trait.

“I’m going to turn really nasty and give you guys heaps,” he said laughing.

“No, seriously it’s good to get back to work but then the hardest thing was leaving the family behind.

“However in getting here to Doral I can’t believe how quickly the Masters is coming up as once again my season will be centered around Majors, and the first big goal is to win a second green jacket.

“But then in saying that I have only a handful of events so I have to get back in form quick smart and there will be no messing around.”

And in his absence Scott was delighted to see fellow Major Champion Padraig Harrington end a seven-year winless drought and capture Monday’s concluding Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens.

And Scott pointed out just how much of a ‘knife’s edge’ it is for everyone competing on the main tour’s of the world.

“I was pleased for Padraig as he’s one of the nicest guys out here on the Tour and I’m pleased for anyone to win out here unless they beat me,” he remarked smiling.

“Padraig’s done a lot of good for golf and he works at it hard and you get these rewards.   But then in saying that it gets that much harder when you do get older and that is just a fact.

“The window kind of closes but Padraig showed true class in making that putt he did on the 18th in regulation so that shows he’s still got it in him. You don’t doubt he could have made that putt because he is a Major Champion.

“But then golf at the top level is played on knife’s edge as it’s a good shot to a bad shot at the right time and it’s the tournament, and it can come all down to just a shot as we saw with Padraig on Monday.”
