Adam Scott re-emerged on the World golfing radar when he took the spoils at the Valero Texas Open. He rallied from four strokes back on the final day for his first PGA Tour victory in two years. The Aussie was 11-under in a 36-hole Sunday finale, edging Fredrik Jacobson by a stroke on the new Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio. The course was designed by Scott's hero, fellow countrymen Greg Norman, who sent a congratulatory message after his first win since the Australian Open in December.
Scott was born in Adelaide, Australia. After attending the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, his playing career took off in 2001, his first full year as a professional golfer, when he won the European Tour's Alfred Dunhill Championship in Johannesburg, South Africa. Over the following years Scott continued to ply his trade on the European Tour picking up wins which included the Qatar Masters, the Scottish PGA Championship and the Scandinavian Masters. He then took up a PGA Tour card in 2003 and enjoyed three victories in his first 12 months including The 2004 Players Championship. Early in 2005 Scott reached the top ten of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time. Though tipped by many to rival Tiger Woods for Major glory, Scott never quite achieved the expected levels of success. His form dipped in 2009 as dropped out of the top 50 in the world rankings and the top 100 of the PGA Tour money list.
Scott’s Valero Texas Open win was his first trip to San Antonio, a landscape that instantly reminded him of his homeland. After the win he said, “Greg Norman designed the course and when I first played it early that week I felt like the landscape looked very similar to Australia and I had a feeling that an Aussie would do well. I'm just very happy that Aussie was me! I hope to carry the momentum to The Memorial which will be my next tournament.”

at the Velero Texas Open
Off the course Adam Scott is famed for his playboy looks and his relationships regularly take up gossip column inches. After splitting from a long term girlfriend Marie Kojzar in 2008, Scott briefly dated actress Kate Hudson, and is presently in a relationship with Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic.
Last year Scott purchased of a $75 million long-range luxury Gulfstream G450 business jet. He could have picked up a cheaper second-hand plane. But an endorsement deal with Gulfstream will help offset some of his expenses. He estimates the end cost to him will be around $1.5 million a year. Scott helps pay for the jet by making promotional appearances and commercials for the company. His Gulfstream endorsement package is in addition to deals with Rolex, Burberry. Titleist, Footjoy and EA Sports, all of which add about $10 million to his annual income.
