ADAM SCOTT

Age: 32.

Country: Australia.

World ranking: 6.

Worldwide wins: 18.

Majors: None.

Best 2012 performances: Runner-up at the British Open.

2012 majors: Masters-T8, US Open-T15, British Open-2.

Backspin: He has reason to believe he has never been more equipped to win a major. But it’s a quick turnaround from the anguish of closing with four straight bogeys to lose a four-shot lead at the British Open. Rory McIlroy lost a four-shot lead at the Masters and won the next major with a record score. But he had two months to get over that. Scott has just over two weeks. The key will be patience until he gets to Sunday, and then see what he learned from Lytham.
