Adam Scott enjoys the perks of a champion at the Masters

 

Adam Scott is relishing every part of being Masters champion. The drive up Magnolia Lane. A couple of practice rounds with his dad. Wearing the green jacket. And, certainly, the champions dinner Tuesday night. But before anyone gets worked up about having to eat “bugs,” no worries – that’s just Aussie-speak for a type of lobster. Scott went with surf-and-turf off the barbie for his Down Under-themed menu, so he didn’t expect too many complaints. “I think they are going to be pretty happy with what I serve up,” he said with a sly smile, “particularly the wine.” A year later, Scott is back at the scene of his greatest triumph, a thrilling playoff victory that gave the 33-year-old Australian his first major championship. With Tiger Woods sidelined by injury, Scott has a chance to move to No. 1 for the first time if he finishes no worse than third in the tournament that starts Thursday. – AP
