Adam Scott unsure of next move

Adam Scott won his first PGA Tour event at the Deutsche Bank Championship six years ago. Not many could have guessed at the start of this year that he would not make it back to the TPC Boston for the second round of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

His troublesome season ended Sunday with a 25-foot birdie and a wistful smile, knowing that he was not even close to moving into the top 100 in the standings to advance.

What’s next for the 29-year-old Scott?

He will return to Australia after next week and plans to have surgery on his right knee for a cyst that has become a nuisance the last few years. Scott said it was unrelated to six times he has dislocated his right knee cap (the most recent last November), nor did it affect his golf swing throughout the year.

He said fluid has caused the cyst to grow, and doctors either will drain it and patch it, or remove it.

“It’s something I should have had done at the start of the year,” he said.

Instead, he played at Kapalua, where he spent the week with Kate Hudson, then tied for second at the Sony Open. That was as good as it got, as Scott spiraled into a mysterious slump. He showed signs of emerging with his tie for fourth at the Loch Lomond, only to miss the cut in the final two majors.

Scott and swing coach Butch Harmon mutually agreed to take a break as Scott tries to find his way.

He only has the Australian Masters, Australian PGA and Australian Open on his schedule the rest of the year. He likely can scratch off the Presidents Cup, although Scott (No. 14 in the standings) won’t rule out being a captain’s pick until Greg Norman tells him so.

He saw Liberty National as an audition, and it turned out to be a final audition.

“I had high hopes of playing well,” he said. “I did play well the last three days, and it’s the most I’ve enjoyed golf in a long time. But I don’t have high hopes—I don’t have realistic hopes—of being a pick.”
