Adam Scott has sights on passing Tiger

Australian Adam Scott believes he can challenge Tiger Woods as the world's number one golfer -- but fears it may take him at least five years.

Scott has his eyes on reaching the top spot after climbing to a career-best ranking of number three following his victory in the season-ending U.S. PGA tour championship.

The 26-year-old says his confidence is soaring and his game is steadily improving to the point where he can envisage himself eventually matching Woods.

"I think if everything went to plan and I played as well as I expect myself to, I think it would take five years before I could be number one," Scott told reporters in the lead-up to the Australian Open, starting on Thursday.

"I feel like I've improved a lot as a player but he's stepped it back up to a level where we've all seen him play before.

"If he maintains that level for another year or so, he's going to be a pretty hard guy to catch."

Scott said his immediate goal was to win his maiden Australian Open title then land his first major next year.

"I can still see room for improvement in all areas, and that's what I'm going to have to do if I'm going to win majors or in five or 10 years hopefully get to number one," he said.
