Scott playing well ahead of Aussie Open

SYDNEY (AP) Adam Scott said the Australian Golf Club, which will host the Australian Open beginning Thursday, might be in the best shape of any course he's played this year. His score in Wednesday's pro-am might have made him feel that way.

Scott initially said after his pro-am round he had a "bunch of birdies," but when told that one of his playing partners said that Scott had shot "9 or 10 under" on the par-71 course, Scott smiled and said: "Yes, it was something like that, but I stopped counting because I didn't want to use them all today."

Last week at the Australian Masters, Scott led after the first two rounds but faltered badly on Saturday with a 77 that pretty much ended any chance of him winning the title on the Huntingdale course in Melbourne where he lost in playoffs in 2002 and 2003.
