Scott keeps chase

Sunday, May 11, 2014

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida - Adam Scott produced a 10-shot turnaround to make the cut on the number and keep his chase for world No.1 alive and then dropped a wedding bombshell at the US PGA Players Championship.

After a terrible five-over 77 on day one, the world No.2 fired a five-under 67, making birdie on three of his last four holes to get to even-par and make the weekend.

While the fightback was impressive, it was lost amongst the revelation he had married long-time girlfriend Marie Kojzar in a surprise and secret small Bahamas ceremony on April 17th, the Thursday after this year's Masters.

"It's official. I am a settled down man and very happy," Scott told AAP.

"We just decided to get on with it, we've known each other long enough, let's go and jump right in the deep end.

"It was just our family and a few friends and obviously there are a lot of people we would have liked to have had there who weren't but we decided to have a very low key affair."

Scott is still a distant 12 shots off the lead held by German Martin Kaymer who backed up his course record 63 with a solid three-under 69 to be 12-under.
