Scott Looks to Keep It Going at Bay Hill


ORLANDO, Fla. * Adam Scott went nearly two years without winning and now looks like he can't lose.

Over three straight weeks, he was runner-up at Riviera, won the Honda Classic and then rallied to beat Rory McIlroy in the Cadillac Championship at Doral. It brought the Australian back into the conversation of golf's elite, and it raised a pair of questions going into the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

How long can he sustain this great run?

With the Masters less than a month away, is it possible that Scott has peaked too early?

"I don't really know how long I can keep it up," Scott said Wednesday at Bay Hill, where players are raving about the condition of the course. "You've got to take advantage of it while it's there. That's the big thing and obviously, I feel confident I can play well this week. Nothing feels any different than when I left Doral, and I'd like to get myself in that position to win again this week and keep it running."

No one had ever won the opening two legs of the Florida swing since Doral began in 1962. Scott went home to the Bahamas last week, where he didn't touch a club for four days because he needed rest more than practice. Now he goes for a third straight victory.

He couldn't help but laugh when he mentioned how Tiger Woods kept a hot streak going "for about 10 years."

Whether he is using up all his great chances before going for another green jacket at Augusta National is impossible to predict. Fifteen years ago, when there were rumblings that Woods was going through a slump, Woods won Bay Hill and The Players Championship in successive weeks, and then won the Masters.

"I think guys like Tiger and some of the best players of history have shown that they can sustain a high level of golf for fairly long periods of time," Scott said.

Scott said the Arnold Palmer Invitational is a tournament he would love to win for no other reason than the host.

The 86-year-old Palmer is not as visible this week as in years past, though he has been seen driving a cart and watching his grandson, Sam Saunders, on the practice range. He is slowing down, his speech isn't as sharp and his hearing not as clear, so he is taping interviews for the telecast this week. …
