Adam Scott on Olympic golf: Meh
By Torleif Sorenson on 5/15/15
International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach is likely to be perturbed at 2013 Masters Tournament champion Adam Scott, following some comments made by the green-jacketed Aussie this week in Charlotte.
In an interview with Andrew Both of Reuters, shared these thoughts about golf in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio:
"I'm not definitely ruling it out but certainly I'm not planning my schedule around playing the Olympics.And when Scott used the word "exhibition," Both decided to double-check and see whether Scott thought the Olympic golf tournament would be an "exhibition":
"Yes, I do, because I don't believe a lot of sports belong there. It's gotten away from where it started.Scott is currently ranked 11th in the Official World Golf Ranking, behind number-eight Jason Day but ahead of number-48 John Senden. But on January 1, 2016, his broomstick putter will be illegal. And if Scott somehow fails to "make hay" with a conventional putter by the time the Olympics roll around, well, that may not be a pretty scene.
