Presidents Cup: USA Wins While Adam Scott Loses
Well, talk about a writing mistake when it comes to predicting the resurgence of a career for one of the world's most popular golfers.
The United States won yet another Presidents Cup title today when Tiger Woods sank a clutch putt to finish off his match again Y.E. Yang, surprising about 3 people in the golfing world in the process. While the International team had little chance at winning the Cup this year, many golf fans were hoping for a strong showing from the struggling Adam Scott (well, maybe I should say *I* was hoping for Scott to finally show why he was the #3 ranked golfer in the world at one point in his career). Alas, Scott managed to not only show that Greg Norman is a poor judge of talent, but Adam Scott should also seriously consider a career change if this level of play is to continue for the young golf hopeful.
Scott finished with a Presidents Cup record of 1-4 (0-2 in Four-Ball, 1-1 in Foursomes, and 0-1 in Singles) to show International captain Greg Norman exactly what this special captain's choice meant to him. For the only sake of comparison, the other Norman pick (Ryo Ishikawa) finished 3-2 while grabbing the attention of the golf world by his flashes of brilliance and poise in the wake of an American beat-down.
What does this mean for the future of the once-heralded Adam Scott? Only time will tell for sure, but this writer believes we have seen the last of what could have been the biggest challenger to Tiger's crown.
