Adam Scott was in a great position to make it to East Lake. Unfortunately, he fell apart during Sunday’s final round action at the BMW Championship.
Rotating between the top five and the top ten, Adam Scott was in a great position to make it through to East Lake. It wasn’t just a final-round collapse at the BMW Championship. It was also a collapse down the stretch.
Heading into the 15th hole, Scott was still in a pretty darn good position. Only +2 for the tournament. Yes, he hadn’t been able to take advantage of the course on the easiest scoring day of the week. However, a solid finish where he either par’d out or found a birdie would ensure his path on to the final round.

Instead, he averaged bogey over the last four holes, starting with a double on 15. He got stuck behind the trees off his tee shot and actually had to hit backwards on his next shot. he couldn’t accomplish a good enough shot there and had to lay up, finding himself hitting his 4th shot from 200 yards out.
He would miss the green, chip on, and two-putt from just six feet out.
Some poor approach shots on 16 and 18 would doom him, as he would bogey each of those holes as well to finish at +6, in a T-25th.
It was an incredibly disappointing and frustrating finish for Scott, who had played some of the best golf throughout the entire week of the BMW Championship through the first 68 holes.
Part of the poor finish may be due to rust, as he chose to stay at home in Australia during the “shutdown”, and the BMW Championship was just his third event since returning.
Now he has some time to head back home once again and work on his game, prepping for the second part of the 2020 major season that starts up in a few weeks.
