Sizzling Scott fires course record at Australian Open
Sydney: US Masters champion Adam Scott confirmed his remarkable form by carding a course record 10-under-par 62 in the first round of the Australian Open at Royal Sydney on Thursday.
The world number two has been on fire on his valedictory tour of homeland over the last few weeks, winning both the Australian PGA and Masters and helping his country to hoist the World Cup of Golf in Melbourne last weekend.
He showed no sign of slowing down as he started his fourth event in as many weeks on Thursday, grabbing birdies on his first six holes and coming home with four more in his final four holes.
That not only gave him an early five-shot lead but also beat the course record of 65 held since the 2008 Australian Open by Stephen Dartnall, Matt Goggins, Ewan Porter, Chris Gaunt and Jason Norris.
