ADAM SCOTT is undoubtedly the most exciting young Australian golfer since Greg Norman. A statement endorsed by his performances over the past five years which have seen him win nine times on five continents and establish himself as one of the best golfers in the World. Scott now concentrates mainly on the PGA Tour and 2005 was the last year that he played enough European Tour events to qualify for the European Tour Order of Merit, but he continues to play all over the world. Sports writer FULVIO GOLOB has covered four Winter Olympic Games. Having worked on staff at many sports magazines, he is now managing director of Il Mondo del Golf.
