Adam Scott feeling confident ahead the US Masters

Adam Scott is feeling confident he can secure his second green jacket, as he prepares to hit Augusta National with former Kiwi caddie Steve Williams this week.

Williams, who also caddied for Tiger Woods during 13 of his 14 major championship victories, linked up with Scott for the first time this year at the Shell Houston Open.

Williams was Scott’s caddie when he last won the event in 2013 and now just works part-time for the world No.7.


Meanwhile, fellow Queenslander Jason Day looks likely to play in this week’s championship.

Day’s pursuit of his first green jacket was thrown into doubt after he was forced to withdraw from the World Golf Championships-Match Play in late March, revealing his mother Dening had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

His mum underwent surgery on March 24 and is now resting, with Day’s wife, Ellie, and children Dash, 4, and Lucy, 1, helping to take care of her.
