March 6, 2016: Adam Scott wins back-to-back PGA Tour events

 

Although his stint in a Rebel uniform was brief, Adam Scott’s contribution to the program is still significant. Scott spent just a year-and-a-half in the Scarlet and Gray before taking his aim on the professional ranks. But in such a short time, he was able to help the Rebels to an NCAA Championship appearance (and sixth-place finish) during an All-America freshman campaign.

Scott came to UNLV in 1998 from Hope Island, Australia, and immediately cracked the Rebel lineup. He continued to hone his game at the collegiate level and ended the season sharply, finishing in the top 20 in five straight events to end the year. His 11th-place effort at the national finals earned him honorable mention All-America honors.

He was one of three All-Americans returning to the lineup in 1999 when he decided to forego his collegiate eligibility and turn professional in the middle of the 1999-00 season.
He needed just eight starts in 2000 to secure his European Tour card. The next season, he opened the year with his first professional win at the Alfred Dunhill Championship.

Scott has won 13 PGA Tour events: the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2003, the 2004 Players Championship, the 2004 Booz Allen Classic, the 2006 THE TOUR Championship, the 2007 Shell Houston Open, the 2008 EDS Byron Nelson Championship, the 2010 Valero Texas Open, the 2011 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, the 2013 Masters, The 2013 Barclays and the 2014 Crowne Plaza Invitational at His victory at the 2013 Masters marked the first major championship ever by a former Rebel. And the 2016 Honda Classic and the 2016 Cadillac Championship.

For his career, Scott has earned more than $37.2 million on the PGA Tour. He has played in 230 tournaments, making the cut 187 times. He has nine second-place finishes, 69 top-10s and 115 top-25s.

He has recorded 13 top-10 finishes at Major PGA Tour events. Prior to his win at the Masters in 2013, his best finishes were at the 2011 Masters and 2012 British Open, both second-place showings.
