Australia’s Adam Scott was a happy man when he walked out of the course on Thursday evening at the U. S Open. He scored a 3 under 67 to be the second on the list just after Germany’s Martin Kaymer. He told Reuters that he could have got a 70 on the score card, but the conditions were not the easiest ones for the game that morning. Scott opened with a 73 when he started on Thursday afternoon.
With the overnight showers, the course moistened on Friday morning and players found a very welcome relief from the fire out there. Scott was heard saying that he believed in playing steady. He did not change his game plan based on the course conditions on the second day – he just played his natural game all throughout. But in spite of the early lead, most of the early starters with the exception of Kaymer, could not go ahead of 67. Scott’s ball striking was very good, especially compared to the fellow contenders. Though he was disappointed with few of the shots he played, he still managed to grab the second spot and maintain his lead.
While talking to the media, Adam Scott said that he had putted well and hence his success at the tournament. He also spoke about how it became easier on Friday with the change of the climatic conditions. On being asked about the competition amongst the fellow golfers at the tournament, he mentioned and praised Kaymer on his game. Though Scott was very positive about taking on with Kaymer, the latter’s lead at the tournament looked insurmountable.
With a lot many tournaments planned back to back this year, Adam said that he wanted to be at his best- both at his game and fitness and looks forward to the good competitions that are lined up for him.
