It’s not every day one of the world’s best golfers wanders into the maintenance shed to say hello, but it happened at Royal Adelaide last week.
Adam Scott surprised everyone when he turned up to Royal Adelaide golf Club to play a round of golf with his Dad last Friday. He surprised junior golfers out practising, he surprised course staff in the maintenance shed and he surprised everyone with a score of 5-under par – with only half a set of golf clubs.
In Adelaide to visit friends, Scott and his father played a fun, relaxing round of golf on a quiet Friday morning at Royal Adelaide Golf Club. But to fit two small carry bags in one golf travel cover, Scott and his Dad packed lightly and turned up with just half a set of golf clubs each.
The lack of options in the bag clearly didn’t deter the world’s number three ranked golfer. Scott fired a 5-under par 67 around one of Australia’s finest golf courses.
The always affable Scott happily posed for a few photos and chatted to a few junior golfers out practising their game. Scott then shocked the course staff when he wandered into the maintenance shed to say hello and compliment them on the condition of the golf course.
