Adam Scott Wins the 2009 Australian Open

Over a year ago, many felt that Adam Scott epitomized everything young and new in the world of Golf. Ranking #3 in the world in 2008, it seemed like nothing can stop this young lad from conquering... But something did. His world ranking dropped over 50 spots this year and everyone had different reasons and opinion why 2009 had been a very bad year for Scott from too much partying to over-confidence. With only one top ten finish in 2009, nobody expected this Australian native to win the 2009 Australian Open in South Wales Golf Club but he did. What's even more surprising is him winning by 5 solid strokes over runner up Stuart Appleby.

Adam Scott was quoted saying to
"It's so bizarre, this game, that off the back of such a bad year I finally played good enough to win down here. This is very, very special to me to win here. This is going to be very sweet and something I will treasure for the rest of my career."
Greg Norman, who made the controversial decision to pick Adam Scott to play for the 2009 Presidents Cup International Team presented him with the Australian Open trophy.

Is this Australian Open Win a fluke or is this the return of THE Adam Scott? This remains to be seen in 2010.
