Adam Scott's start to 2016

Adam Scott is showing the golfing world that his transition from long to short putter has been as smooth as his free flowing swing.

Recognised as one of the best ball strikers on tour, Scott’s Achilles heel has often been the flat stick. Tee to green, the 35 year-old Australian has produced stunning ball striking week in - week out, but has struggled to show the same consistency once on the putting surface. However, his game is all coming together in early 2016 and he will be looking for a huge season ahead.

With victory in his last two starts on the USPGA Tour at The Honda Classic and WGC Cadillac Championship, Scott will be eyeing up a repeat of his maiden major victory when he tees up at The US Masters in early April. The 2013 champion will start as one of the tournament favourites with both fans and bookmakers.

Another player in red hot form is two time Masters winner, Bubba Watson. Taking home green jackets in 2012 and 2014, Watson must be thinking he is once again due in 2016 with the Augusta layout seemingly tailor made to the unorthodox left handers game. Watson’s 2nd place finish to Scott last weekend was a turnaround from his victory in the Northern Trust Open just two weeks earlier where he himself had held off Scott by one shot.

This year’s US Masters will once again provide all the drama and excitement we have come to expect of the season’s first major and a visit to Augusta’s hallowed fairways is on the wish list of many golf fans.
