Barclays Recap: Adam Scott Is A Different Person

Remember the Adam Scott who was known more for what he didn’t do? Like losing a four-stroke lead at last year’s Open Championship and finishing in the top-15 at all four majors in 2012.

The Open Championship Recap Part Two

Is he back? I don’t even have to say who “he” is and you already know who I’m talking about. Tiger Woods, ladies and gentlemen. Before last week, I thought this question was stupid.
