Adam Scott is trying to build a golf game that can travel to any golf course in the world for any tournament. He can only hope it knows the way to Pinehurst No. 2. Or any U.S. Open course, for that matter. Scott hasn’t broken 70 at the U.S. Open in five years. He has missed the cut as often as he has made it - six times each. His best performance was a tie for 15th.
