Adam Scott Win's The Australian Master's

By Darren

Adam Scott has won The Australian Master's

The Queenslander fought tooth and nail with runner-up Ian Poulter for the closing 36 holes at Kingston Heath as they left the field in their wake with an awesome shotmaking display.

The pair, who played together all weekend, combined for 25 birdies in 27 holes from the start of the third round until the turn yesterday.

"It was great to be a part of it. The way Ian and I played the last two days was the highest standard of golf there is," Scott said.

"You could have brought anyone down here and they would have had to be on their game to play that way.

"For me to have it out with a world-class player and to come out on top is very satisfying -- but I can't tell you how good we both played the last two days. It was really a high level of golf."

"I haven't been dwelling on what happened at the Open at all, I put that out of my head in the week afterwards," he said.

"I had to, otherwise you'd never come back to a golf course, would you? It's kind of painful.

"I felt good out there. I just had to trust that all the work that I'd put into my game was going to hold up and to not get in my own way is the big thing.

"Not (to) have thoughts of what happened at the Open or any other negative thoughts come into play -- that's just part of the mental side of this game."
