Adam Scott has seemingly changed his mind about playing in the 2016 Olympics, according to former British Open Champion Ian Baker-Finch, who will captain the Australian team in Rio later this year.
Adam Scott raised the trophy last night at the Honda Classic, pipping Sergio Garcia by one shot for his first title in two years. While he only managed a level par 70, Sergio could only muster a 71, and no one made a run at the the two of them.
It's without doubt been a disappointing season for Adam Scott, who needs a late win to secure his record of a tour win every season, which is what he has done for the last 14 consecutive years. In front of what will undoubtedly be a highly partisan Ozzie crowd, Scott is properly pumped up for the occasion.
Adam Scott confirmed today that he is by no means certain to play at the Olympics in Rio next year, even if he does qualify. He’s also been highly critical of the organisers for not including a team event, something we’ve been crying out for as well.
"He's the number one player in the world, and he's showing why." That was Adam Scott taking about Justin Rose immedately after finishing second to the Englishman by two shots at Torrey Pines in the FarmersInsurance Open.
Adam Scott is too busy to try and win a gold medal at the Rio Olympic Games.
It was a fine victory for Adam Scott last weekend, he is a great ball striker, but I must confess I rather sighed when I saw him using a long putter to great effect once again. It was a similar feeling to that I had when Scott won the Masters back in 2013. I’m sorry, but I am with the brigade who consider these long putters cheat sticks.
It’s Manic Monday, so here is a very quick round up of all the results and stories from the weekend on the, PGA Tour, European Tour, LPGA and Women’s European Tour.
Continuing our series, GolfPunk looks back at some of the trend setters on the course over the years and gets the expert opinion of Stephen Doig, Men's Style Editor and Assistant Luxury Editor, The Telegraph as to 'Who wore it better'. Facing up this time are major winners from different eras. Tiger Woods and Tony Jacklin battle it out to see to who who carried off the turle neck best of all.
We all long to hear success stories of people in various fields. There are top professional golfers who have soared so high and The Golf Punk team sought to learn how they made it to the levels they are at today, and below are the betting stories of the best golf gamblers.
With a potential ban for green books on the horizon, we’ve looked back at what other bits of golf equipment have been banned in competition (and occasionally had the ban lifted again) throughout the history of golf!
We all think we’re betting experts when it comes to the Masters. We see the course every year. The same players seem to do well round there, and some guys just have the perfect game for Augusta National. Add to that Skybet were giving 8 places, and there are only 89 players in the field? We couldn't fail to lose.
Adam Scott and Rafa Cabrera–Bella have been enjoying some fine dining, if you like eating live bugs that is!
It’s the perfect phone call. The opportunity to go somewhere great and play golf. On the line is my Austrian friend Natascha, who had just offered me the chance to come out to her homeland and sample a new golfing Mecca. Yesss.
The PGA Tour. Recreated in pancake form. Obviously.
The world of Twitter light up with praise for Justin Rose's Olympic gold victory, and Justin has changed his Twitter profile picture. Here's who said what. And possibly more importantly, who didn't say anything at all!
I’d like to transport you back to the summer of 1904, and what a summer it was. My old mucker George Seymour Lyon was in fine foozling form down at the Glen Echo Country Club in St Louis.
GolfPunk last took over Troon at 2004's Open. We are doing it again this year. Here's what went on last time.... WARNING: Disturbing content.
We’ve heard the rumours before but now it’s official. Adidas have said that it is sellling off TaylorMade, Adams, and Ashworth. Previously reports indicated they were just looking to get rid of Ashworth and Adams.
Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from Olympic contention has his management company, Chubby Chandler's ISM, has issued a statement. Here it is in full plus some of the fallout from Adam Scott's withdrawl.
Now who's interested? In a move that is bound to turn tour pro heads and have them queuing up for 5 ring tattoos, the PGA has announced that golf medal winners at the Olympics will receive exemptions to all majors in 2017.
The Spiv has been in the money two of the last three weeks. He's found some tremendous value this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational...

What clubs were used to win at the WGC-Cadillac this week?
Adam Scott and the Zimmer frame putter? It’s yesterday’s news. We have all moved on. This was a back-to-back win for Scott, who started with a very bad back nine, which would have destroyed a lesser player.
Rory McIlroy lit it up last night, shooting a second round 65 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Jumping up to second place, Rory is two shots back of an in form Adam Scott.
Rumours have been flying about that Rory is splitting with renowned putting coach Dave Stockton. One thing that definitely has happened is he's changed his putting grip. Rory's gone left hand under. When you look at his stats for this season, it's little wonder he's making changes...
Well the Spiv nailed it at the Honda Classic as Adam Scott won by one over Sergio Garcia. Who is his money on this week?
What's been Helping The Gravy & Bunching Arse for GolfPunk this week? Well, first there was the Brits, then the bloody Oscars, and don't even get us started on footballers taking corners from the wrong bloody place! Oh, and there was some stuff we liked as well!!
What clubs were used to win around the world this week?
Adam Scott shot a 66 last night to take a share of the lead last night with Sergio Garcia at the Honda Classic last night. Sounds great. Except he threw a quadruple bogey in there.
So who should you be looking out for this week? Here’s my top five to do well this week at the Honda Classic.
Jordan missed the cut, Rory holed a 58 footer, and Bubba, Dustin, Rory, Charl and Adam are all lurking within a few shots of the lead. Check out the highlights from Riviera here.
It seems just like yesterday, well maybe last week, but it's actually the 20th anniversary of the release of Happy Gilmore. Cripes. Here's why we still love it.
Goodbye and good riddance to anchored puttiing. The ban has now come into force. It's time to put(t) away the golf zimmer frame.
There’s winning from the front, and there’s reversing into a win. It’s safe to say Matt Jones did the latter at the Australian Open. Shooting a two over final round, Jones did just enough to keep Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott at bay.
Jordan Speith will be treating the Olympics in 2016 as if were “a fifth major.” And he really wants to enjoy the whole experience, which is what the Olympics is all about for competitors.
Henrik Stenson has announced he's giving up his day job to follow a career in the movies, just days after winning a European Tour Poll on which golfer would make the best James Bond.

There’s an interesting debate going on right now between some of Australia’s top players.
