Adam Scott has won his second consecutive tournament after winning the Genesis Invitational in his first start for 2020.
In 2004 Adam Scott unofficially won the tournament formerly known as the Nissan Open at the Riviera Country Club after severe weather reduced the tournament to just 36-holes.
But today Scott can say he has officially won the tournament (now known as The Genesis Invitational) after claiming a two-stroke victory over Matt Kuchar, Sung Kang and Scott Brown.
Scott managed to come up with enough clutch shots down the stretch to pull ahead of the crowded leaderboard that saw over 10 players looking to take the winners’ trophy late on Sunday.
Scott’s putter got hot when needed including a hugely important par putt at the 12th before an amazing up-and-down for a birdie at the par-5 17th hole to give himself a two-stroke buffer going to the final hole.
The win was Scott’s second in two consecutive events on two different tours having last played and won at the European Tour co-sanctioned Australian PGA Championship on the Gold Coast last December.
Scott’s victory also means that six Australians have now won across the PGA Tour and European Tour in the first six weeks of 2020.
