Scott looking for a big week to find British grove
It’s the kind of test that Jason Day did not want to miss. Day has only one PGA Tour win, though the Australian has been thriving on tough courses in recent years. He finished two shots back at the Masters twice in the last three years, and he was two shots behind Rose at Merion. Day also was runner-up to McIlroy in the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional, though he was eight shots behind.
“This course … it kind of feels like a U.S. Open again,” Day said. “It’s got some length to it, and the rough is pretty dense out there.”
Asked later if he preferred the harder courses, Day’s eyes lit up and he said, “Tough, yes.”
“Just takes out the riff-raff, I guess,” he said.
It was a reference to games, not names. This is not a place where players can get by without their best stuff.
Scott won the now-defunct Booz Allen Classic the one year it was held at Congressional. Since the AT&T National began in 2007, the list of winners is K.J. Choi, Anthony Kim and Woods the last two times.
Scott said Congressional was the primary reason he put the AT&T on his limited schedule. Now he hopes to see something good come out of the week.
“This is the time of the year where I play, and I need to be ready and play myself into form,” Scott said. “Especially after the U.S. Open, I feel a result is needed, just some kind of result to keep the confidence high and move over to Europe feeling like I’m ready to compete. I want to contend. It’s been since the Masters that I’ve really been in contention. So getting those feelings would be nice again.”
