Golf-Scrambling Spieth struggles in Sydney cross-winds
Yahoo News - over 1 year
By Nick Mulvenney SYDNEY, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Jordan Spieth proved that even world number ones can be reduced to scrambling around a golf course by blustery winds after carding an even par 71 in the first round of the Australian Open on Thursday. It was a far cry from his final round at The Australian Golf Club last year, when he defied the Sydney wind to shoot a brilliant 63 and claim the Stonehaven Cup, launching a year in which he won two majors. When you bring hazards in, it makes it even more challenging." After struggling in a group with Australian former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy (68) and British former world number one Lee Westwood (70), Spieth said he did not think he would be too far off the pace once the round finished.

Adam Scott Survives Wild Finish At The Barclays
Huffington Post - over 3 years
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Masters champion Adam Scott didn't think his good round was good enough Sunday at The Barclays. His caddie had already packed his golf clubs into a travel case. He viewed his visit to the CBS Sports tower as nothing more than a courtesy. His only hope was that the other players still on the course – Tiger Woods and Justin Rose among them – might find it as difficult to close out a victory as Scott has over the years. "I'm pretty shocked," Scott said after his 5-under 66 gave him a one-shot win at Liberty National. "There were so many guys out there with a chance and I really didn't think I had much of a chance. If you hang around the lead long enough, you're going to win some, you're going to lose some. And this one went my way." Scott was watching from the locker room when Rose, who had a 25-foot putt for the outright lead, ran it 5 feet by the hole and three-putted for bogey. Clubs unpacked, Scott was on his way to the range when the groan ...
