Las Vegas, Nevada (November 18, 2012)–Adam Scott played college golf at UNLV before leaving early to pursue the riches of professional golf and the PGA Tour. Scott's choice has worked out, and now he has fulfilled a lifelong dream of winning the Australian Masters in his home country. For his win, Scott collected a trophy, some big cash, and the golf jacket. And shortly after the win, Scott looked ahead to The Masters 2013 at Augusta. –By Brian Hurlburt
"Adam Scott grew up dreaming of donning the Australian Masters gold jacket," wrote Mark Hayes of the Herald Sun in Melbourne, Australia. "Yesterday, within minutes of pulling it on after one of the most complete and compelling four-round performances of his career, the world No.5's focus switched to the green variety on offer at Augusta in April.
"For the man who's now unquestionably Australia's pre-eminent golfer, that green and gold combination is the next order of business.'It's pretty awesome to be able to slip this jacket on … maybe I can set the theme of winning jackets and turn it green next year before I come back to defend,' Scott beamed."
