Adam Scott would take his 2013 PGA Tour season over that of Tiger Woods in a heartbeat. Despite the fact that Woods has five wins, he has failed to pick up a major championship title once again. Scott, on the other hand, only has one victory, but it came at The Masters. “I’d rather have mine,” he said. “He may want mine. I mean, No. 15 is proving to be difficult.” Of course, Scott was speaking about the elusive 15th major title that Woods has been seeking for a while now.
Honestly, I agree with Scott. It’s every golfers dream to win a major championship. Yes, five victories in one season is an incredibly impressive feat, but it’s not history-making. Scott will forever be known as a major champion. In fact, as the first Aussie to win The Masters, he is going to be the answer for a trivia question for generations.
This is far from bulletin board material from Scott, but at the same time it wasn’t exactly a ringing endorsement for Woods’ season. Scott was asked a question and answered it honestly. He didn’t speak ill of Woods, he simply stated his opinion. Most people would be inclined to agree with Scott’s assessment of the situation. I have a sneaking suspicion Woods would be one of those to agree, as well.
It’s not as if Tiger is at a point in his career where he needs reassurance from his competitors, however. And, even though he hasn’t picked up a major championship, five wins in seven non-majors is still pretty freaking impressive.
After 54 holes at The Barclays, Woods is tied for fourth and is just four shots off of the pace. Scott is a bit lower on the leaderboard at six under par and in a tie for 13th position.
