Local favorite Adam Scott shot a 5-under 67 to get a victory in the $1 million Australian Masters on Sunday in his native country for his first victory of the year as Ian Poulter's title defense fizzled out with a bogey-strewn back nine at Melbourne's Kingston Heath Cheap Golf Clubs.
The world number five Scott showed great composure on a windy day to shoot five-under 67 for a 17-under total of 271 and clinch his first tournament win of the year after a frustrating season of near-misses. Scott had five birdies on the front nine and another on No. 18. He trailed Ian Poulter by one after three rounds.
"This has been a long time coming," Scott said, "This is pretty sweet to be in the gold jacket and hold this trophy that I've been admiring since I was a little kid." Scott continued: "Winning the Australian Open was like getting the monkey off my back a couple of years ago, but this is certainly something I've wanted to achieve for a long time."
