Talisker Australian Open. Great Scott Eases Past Poor Poults Performance

Golf Australia     

Adam Scott played a great last round to ease past a poor performance from Poults at the Talisker Australian Open at the Kingston Heath Golf Club on Sunday.  Adams final round of  -5 under-par 67 gave him a four shot win over defending champion Ian Poulter. Adam described the week as perfectly satisfactory;

Satisfaction is the perfect word to describe this week, it is probably the only tournament of the year maybe one other where I have put four solid rounds together. It was great to be part of it. The golf Ian and I played over the past two days was the highest standard of golf there is. I can’t tell you how good it was. My swing was good all week but today it was very good. I just tried to play instinctive golf. I took my chances on the front 9 and then just tried to hang on on the back nine.”

Ian Poulter made too many mistakes today, the beaten defending champion was disappointed with his performance, but complimentary of Adam’s solid round;

“It has been a great week, I am disappointed because I led into the final round and haven’t won but it has been a great week. Adam played very solid and forced me into a couple of mistakes. I made a fateful error on the 17th  {he missed a putt form two feet} when I was standing over Adam’s line but he played a lovely round of five under”

I said yesterday that the winner from these two would be the one who made the least mistakes, Ian Poulter made bogey on two par fives, for a man of his caliber that is not a mistake, it is criminal negligence.

New Zealander’s Mark Brown and Gareth Paddison tied for third place, eight shots behind Adam Scott’s winning score.
