Adam Scott’s message to Presidents Cup fans: Don’t cheer on Tiger

Published

on

Adam Scott has urged fans at next week’s Presidents Cup not to cheer Tiger Woods or any other U.S. player for that matter, as the 2013 Masters champion looks for a more partisan home crowd than usual.

Speaking to the Herald Sun, Scott stated

“Last time it was too friendly. Quite bluntly, we want the home-crowd advantage, and I’ll be disappointed if they are cheering enthusiastically for Tiger or anyone on the U.S. team.”

Scott is set to play in his eighth Presidents Cup next week, and as the International side as a whole, is looking to improve on a dismal individual record at the event (14-20-5 ). At Royal Melbourne, the 39-year-old believes the Australian crowd have the potential to turn the tide in the often one-sided competition.

“I’m not saying be a poor sport, but one challenge our team has always had is gaining a home-soil advantage because it’s rare that stars like Tiger and DJ (Dustin Johnson) come to Australia (2011) or Korea (2015) where we play these things and the locals are excited to see them as much as anyone on our team. But while we appreciate them very much, we don’t have to cheer for them.”

The Presidents Cup gets underway next week from Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

    What an unprofessional comment. Americans cheer for all players when they play here.

    There’s always players on the opposing team that are big-draws for the home crowd, guys like Mickelson and Tiger fit that bill. Seve was the same.

Tuesday: Played @pinehurstresort number 4. This course is phenomenal. Gil Hanse’s redesign of this course is outstanding. Definitely not as punishing as course 2 but just as good in terms of layout. Greens are fast and large but will not punish you as much with imprecise shots. Much more fun to play if you want to score well. Still difficult but it will not frustrate you like Course 2. We had a beautiful 70 degree day and couldn’t of had a better time playing this course. We had the first tee time off in the morning and finished just under 4 hours which left us enough time to go play another track which I will post about shortly. Enjoy the pics! #pinehurst4 #whyilovethisgame #pinehurstgolf #golfislife #instagolf #golfdigesttop100 #ncgolf #golfwrx #golfcoursepics
