The Australian, who won last weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, believes he now knows what it takes to compete at the biggest events.
After a near flawless week that contained a spectacular opening round of 63 he said, “You’ve got to play like a bulldog to win a golf tournament these days.
“It was like we’re used to seeing Tiger close out tournaments. He gets in front and just won’t let anyone in.”
The immediate aftermath of his win was however shrouded in controversy after new caddie, Steve Williams, made over-zealous remarks about the win on TV.
New-Zealander Williams, who was fired by former world number one Tiger Woods three weeks ago, described Scott’s victory at Firestone as “the greatest win of his career”.
On the incident Scott said, “Obviously we all know his personality in those situations. It’s almost like I need to show him, I’ve got it in me, because a lot of people question it.”
Demonstrating his new-found confidence he says, ” I can show him (Williams) on the golf course that I’m right up for it as well.”
