Following his victory, Scott said he would seek out Norman for a beer to discuss his triumph, and the two-time Open champion believes his countryman can now follow in his footsteps by claiming more major titles.
He said: “Adam is a great player and I’m confident this victory will catapult him to win more majors. It will not surprise me if he wins more major championships than any other Australian golfer. He’s not a guy that wants to sit back and relax and rest on his laurels.
He has incredible fire within his system. And a victory like this is going to give him tremendous confidence as he moves forward in his career.” It was a good week for the Australians at Augusta with Jason Day and Marc Leishman both finishing in the top five and Norman, who finished as a runner-up for the Masters title three times, believes the performances have provided a huge fillip for golf Down Under. “It gave me so much pride to look up at the leaderboard and see three Aussie flags on there,” he said.
