Scott looking to take golf’s top ranking from Tiger’s claws

HOPE Island golfer Adam Scott will need to wait a bit longer to grab the No.1 ranking from the claws of American Tiger Woods.

Dangerous weather has suspended play in the opening round of the WGC Cadillac Championship in Miami.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports, Scott rattled off six straight pars to be tied 18th before players were pulled off Doral’s Blue Monster course with the area on tornado watch.


The Gold Coaster needs to win the event and have Woods finish worse than fifth to take top spot in the rankings.

He trails event leader and fellow major winner Jason Dufner by five shots with the American at five-under-par through 10 holes.

While Beaudesert local and world No.4 Jason Day pulled out of the tournament with a thumb injury before starting his round.

Fresh from winning the WGC Match Play Championship two weeks ago, the 26-year-old decided not to risk further injury before next month’s Masters.
