Scott eager to end season in style
Last updated: 6th November 2012
Australian Adam Scott is "desperate" to end his year with a victory when the Barclays Singapore Open tees off on Thursday.
Having secured a hat-trick of victories at the Barclays Singapore Open in 2005, 2006 and 2010, the Australian hopes to savour the winning feeling again as he returns to one of his favourite hunting grounds in Asia.
"I had a good finish last week after coming off a five week break. But I'm getting to the point now that I am getting a little desperate to win a tournament. There are not that many left and this one would be a great one for me to do that," said Scott, who finished in eighth place in Shenzhen, China last week.
"I've always enjoyed tremendous support here in Singapore and I've made some fantastic friends here and particularly at Sentosa Golf Club. So it is a fun week to come back and meet up with everyone. It is a relaxed atmosphere and I do enjoy the golf course," added the world number six.
The Australian has not won since the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August last year and his drought included his well-documented collapse at this year's British Open.
Although critics may have questioned his mental ability when he surrendered a four-shot lead with four holes to play and lost by a single stroke to South African Ernie Els at the British Open, Scott is adamant that his game is still in good shape.
"My attitude towards the game has not changed at all. In fact, it has reassured me that I am doing all the right things. Putting myself in that position, playing that quality of golf at the right time, that is what I am trying to do," said Scott.
"When the Majors come around next year I will be doing the same stuff to prepare myself. It has filled me with confidence more than anything else, more belief in myself that I have the game to win Major championships. Come April next year, I will be building myself up to have a good run during the Major season," added the Australian.
This year marks the 49th staging of the Singapore Open which will be co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour and European Tour.
