Adam Scott is looking to add another jacket to his already bulging wardrobe at the Australian Masters which tees-off tomorrow and punters are confident he will following his impressive win in last week’s Australian PGA Championship

Scott has been heavily backed at Sportingbet to defend is Australian Masters crown firming from $3.75 into $3.25.

“Scott’s had the best year of his life winning the US Masters in April and has continued his good form. He probably should have won the PGA by more last week and if he brings that form to Royal Melbourne they won’t beat him,” Sportingbet’s Michael Felgate said.

“The punters are cashed-up after smashing him to win the PGA and they are on again in the Masters. Scott has clearly been the best backed player.”

Scott has also been well backed to win Australia’s triple crown of golf. After claiming the first leg last week, Scott’s odds have been slashed from $34 into $13.

“Robert Allenby is the only golfer to do it but if Scott wins the second leg this week, he will starts a short-priced favourite to claim the triple crown in the Australian Open,” Felgate said

World number 8 Matt Kuchar is second favourite in the Masters firming from $8 into $7.50, and there has been some longshot money for local Geoff Ogilvy backed from $26 into $23.

“It’s hard to see Ogilvy winning on form after missing 11 cuts from 22 tournaments this year but Royal Melbourne is his home course and he will have plenty of local support. If he can build some confidence early $23 could be value,” Felgate said.
