Northern Irish golfer Graeme McDowell is convinced that Australian golfer Adam Scott has the freshness, the drive and a streak of selfishness that it takes to win the second major title.
McDowell, a hugely popular golfer on both the European Tour and the PGA Tour and he spoke about his love for the Royal Melbourne Golf Club and added how he is looking forward to dueling with Scott at the World Cup of golf when one of the most fabled team events in the sport hits the course between the 21st and 24th of November.
And his schedule for the end of the season also goes to show how much Scott is committed to the sport in his home country. The $ 8.2 million World Cup of Golf will be the third of four events for the Australian that also includes a stop at the same event for the Australian Masters the week before.
It isn’t a schedule that Scott would normally go through but he wanted to give back something to the sporting community in the country and he is also saw it as an opportunity to thank the fans for standing by him.
McDowell, on the other hand, did not win a single title in 2011 after winning his first major in the US Open 2010 but he believes Adam Scott is better equipped to handle the life changing major win.
McDowell stated that as a major champion, the demands on a golfer’s time increases rapidly and one has to pick and choose the events he wants to play in and be a little bit of selfish for the sake of his own career. He added that Adam Scott has been a great player for some years and is mature enough to adapt the demands on his time.
