Adam Scott Looks Back On His ‘Average’ Efforts In 2017 Majors.

As Adam Scott dropped outside the top-20 on the World Ranking for a first time in over six years he has reflected of his 2017 efforts in the four Majors.

Scott is now World No. 21 and his lowest ranking since missing the cut at the 2011 U.S. Open to remain at 21st in the world and then a fortnight later moving to 18th in the world in sharing third place at the AT & T National.

Since then, Scott has been inside the top-20 including moving to the summit of the rankings mid-2014 in capturing the Crowne Plaza Invitational.

Scott is now ranked just one place ahead of fellow Aussie Marc Leishman who moved to a career high of World No. 22 and despite not having competed last week,and this after moving to a then best of 23rd a week earlier in finishing third at TPC Boston.

Scott’s slip outside the top-20 on the rankings should come as no surprise given he missed the cut in the U.S. Open finished well down the PGA Championship and also missed the cut in last fortnight’s Dell Technologies Championship.

The new father of two’s best effort in the four Majors this year was his share of ninth in the Masters.

“I finished ninth in the Masters but then my efforts in the other three were average”, he said.

“I putted poorly in the U.S. Open and that was surprising as I had been putting so well leading into Erin Hills and that made it difficult for me to make the cut and I missed in the end by one or two shots.

“I went to The Open still somewhat putting the pieces back together from the U.S. Open but then I finished 20th but like most of the year I just haven’t threatened a great deal.

“Then I went to Charlotte for the PGA Championship and that was ordinary.  I mean, I played average but made the worst of my scores for the first couple of days.

“So, aside from the Masters it was disappointing this year in the Majors.

“Of course, it has been a stop-start season both on and off the golf course and I just really haven’t been able to get into my usual routine.

“Maybe that is not surprising as I do always expect a lot out of myself but then it just didn’t happen for me in the Majors”.
