The Masters from Augusta served up its usual mix of controversy and simple unadulterated excitement, eventually delivering a first Major for Adam Scott, one of three Australians who contended strongly for the title over four fascinating days. No player compiled a more consistent record in Majors during 2012 and Scott emphatically dismissed any concerns about his mental strength to see things through with a pulsating 18th hole putt before seeing off the wondrous Angel Cabrera in the play-off. The latter seemed to play all four rounds with an air of relaxed nonchalance that suggested he’d just turned up on the off-chance of getting a round of golf in before settling down at the bar. However, now that Scott has finally claimed his first Green Jacket and Major, it will be fascinating to see if he can maintain his excellent consistency at the prime tournaments. If the answer if ‘yes,’ then he will warrant automatic inclusion on everyone’s future shortlists.
