Adam Scott is proving again that less can be more.
Since deciding to slow down his globetrotting a while back and choosing to be more judicious in putting together his schedule, Scott has blossomed into the player he and others believed he could be. His victory Sunday in the Barclays, coupled with his emotional win at The Masters in April, has thrust him into the Player of the Year discussion as the season churns into its final three events.
“It’s interesting, I felt like earlier in my career I gave myself a lot more chances to win tournaments because I played a lot more and I seemed to win a couple tournaments every year, not on the PGA Tour but around the world,” Scott said Sunday evening. “The last couple years, my focus shifted a bit and I changed my schedule and played a lot less tournaments so I think I have less opportunity to win and focused on the big tournaments which are not easy to win, not that others are.
“(I) kind of developed my game into being more consistent, performing in the big ones and now trying to adapt that to be a winner on a more frequent basis is what I’m working toward.”
