Scott - Majors have been average

12th September 2017, 18:34 by Jack Ogalbe

Adam Scott admits he has been left disappointed by his lack of impact at this year's Majors.

The Australian has had a mixed 2017, with the joy of becoming a father for the second time away from the course running alongside a season where he is yet to record a victory.

A tie for the ninth at the Masters has been his best showing in the Majors, with a missed cut at the US Open being followed by a tie for 22nd at the Open and a joint 61st effort at the US PGA.

Scott concedes his performances in the biggest tournaments this year have been underwhelming to say the least.

"I finished ninth in the Masters but then my efforts in the other three were average," he said. "I putted poorly in the U.S. Open and that was surprising as I had been putting so well

"I went to The Open still somewhat putting the pieces back together from the U.S. Open but then I finished 20th but like most of the year I just haven't threatened a great deal.

"Then I went to Charlotte for the PGA Championship and that was ordinary. I mean, I played average but made the worst of my scores for the first couple of days. So, aside from the Masters it was disappointing this year in the Majors."
