Adam Scott- Number 1 In The World..Confirmed With Win

By Darren

Australian Adam Scott has consolidated his place as the world's number 1 golfer with a sudden-death playoff victory against American Jason Dufner at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.

Our own Adam Scott whilst already being the forst Australian to win the Master's sealed the victory on the third playoff hole with a birdie at Colonial Country Club's par-4 18th, while 2013 US PGA Championship winner Dufner could only manage par.

He was playing as the world's top player for the first time since taking over from injury-idled Tiger Woods on Monday.

Henrik Stenson, the world number three from Sweden who was vying to move past Woods and Scott to seize the top spot, still had a chance after finishing tied for seventh earlier Sunday in the European PGA Championship at Wentworth won by Rory McIlroy.

To get Adam Scott to world number 1 and pass Tiger Woods must also be a bitter sweet pill for his caddie Steve Williams who was previously sacked by Tiger.
