Scott becomes Master of second chances
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Nine months ago, Adam Scott led the British Open by four shots with four holes to go. That’s how close he was to winning his first major. Instead, he made like Ed Sneed at the 1979 Masters. Sneed led by three with three left but never got one of those green jackets. Neither did Scott get his claret jug. Instead he became one of those train-wreck tragedies that dot golf’s lore, closing with four straight bogeys to finish one behind Ernie Els.
The fact that it happens is one thing. How you deal with the inherent demons can be quite another. They’ve been known to swallow careers.
A decade or so ago, Scott was one of the game’s next big things. It seems like there’s never any shortage of those. Many become trivia questions. There were probably times when Scott could have maybe gone either way.
