Adam Scott

The charismatic Australian has long been seen as the heir apparent to his boyhood hero Greg Norman, but that quest for a first Major title has proved elusive in a professional career that nevertheless has seen him win 16 titles worldwide. The high point of Adam Scott's time on the PGA Tour came when he captured The Players championship at TPC Sawgrass in 2004 but the globetrotting Aussie - who is based in Crans-sur-Sierre in Switzerland - showed a very welcome return to form when he captured the Australian Open at the tail-end of the 2009 season, beating his compatriot Stuart Appleby by five shots ... is an avid surfer, which has been responsible for Scott sustaining a number of knee injuries which forced him to spend time away from the golf course ... is the founder and promoter of the Adam Scott Foundation, which helps underprivileged children in Australia.
