Scott should prove the wizard of Oz

Impressive links record points to favourite

Adam Scott has been swinging beautifully
1 of 1

Adam Scott is different gravy to his seven opponents in the Scottish Open top Australian market and two firms are offering a generous 5-6 about him proving that fact.

Scott is comfortable playing links golf and has built a solid Open record. He almost won the 2012 edition and has form figures of 2-3-5-10-43 from the last five Opens. Given the way he has been hitting his ball in recent weeks, it would come as a surprise should he fail to make some sort of impact on the Dundonald Links.

Terrible putting cost Scott at the US Open and flat-stick issues may deny him a serious Scottish Open title challenge, but his tee-to-green class alone should be enough to leave a weak set of compatriots behind. Scott should be shorter than 5-6 to account for Scott Hend, Marcus Fraser, Wade Ormsby, Andrew Dodt, Jason Scrivener, Sam Brazel and Brett Rumford.
