Scott looking for return of form in Europe
Australia's Adam Scott is bidding this week for a TPC double at the Tournament Players Championship of Europe, having won the U.S. PGA Tour's equivalent at Sawgrass in late March.
The 23-year-old, refreshed after a month's break and a session with his coach Butch Harmon in Las Vegas last week, said he had needed time away from competition after following his American triumph with two missed cuts.
"I never gave myself time to wind down properly after a big Sunday (at the Players Championship) for me," Scott told reporters at St Leon-Rot on Wednesday.
"The wheels fell off at Atlanta (at the BellSouth Classic) on the Friday after Sawgrass and then I never really put them back on for the next week (at the U.S. Masters) either."
Scott denied, however, that his poor performance at Augusta had led to his parting company with respected British caddie Alastair McLean.
"It wasn't directly related to Augusta," said the Australian, who has Greg Norman's bagman Tony Navarro working for him this week.
"That had nothing to do with it.
"Alastair and I had a really great run together and I think he did a lot of good things for my game, but the time had come where we needed to go in different directions."
