Scott ready for Genesis test

Adam Scott hopes a successful week at the Genesis Open will set him up nicely for the rest of 2017 as he targets more glory.
Scott started 2016 with a bang when finishing second in the Genesis before picking up victories in the Honda Classic and WGC Cadillac Championship.
However he failed to pick up another title for the remainder the year, although he did have top-10 finishes in his last four events.
The Australian is now looking to at the very least replicate his performance at the Riviera Country Club 12 months ago, where he shot four rounds in the 60s to finish tied for second, just behind Bubba Watson.
“My game just rounded into nice shape over the weekend here,” he said referring to a pair of four-under-par 67s. “Kind of sniffing a victory really motivated me to go to Honda and take advantage of my game.
“And then you get a win and I just tried to get out of my own way the next week and keep swinging the same way and not think about it too much.
“But after that, when I took a week off, it was very hard to replicate that and the magic kind of disappeared. I would love to know what it is and how to keep that momentum going, because I only managed to do it three weeks."
Scott will be hoping to get his game in tip-top shape for the Masters at Augusta, where he won the Green Jacket in 2013.
