Scott Seeking Improvement
Adam Scott has set himself the mission of winning a career grand slam after breaking his Major duck in this year’s Masters.
"I'd love to win the career grand slam and put myself in that really small group of players who have won all four majors," the 33-year-old told reporters at the Australian PGA Championship.
"I think that would be a good goal but that's a long way off for the moment. I've only got one, so there's a lot of work to do."
Only Gary Player, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen have achieved the feat.
Scott, who had one of his best ever seasons, still thinks he has a lot more in the locker.
"I think all the great things that come from winning the Masters are still yet to happen for me as a golfer personally.
"I feel good with where my game is at. But (there's) just a little less to prove after having won a major and maybe shown the 'mongrel' or whatever it was that everyone wanted to see in me.”
