Arriving to a hero's welcome in his native country, Adam Scott received the key to the city of the Gold Coast following the Wednesday Pro-Am. It was Adam's first trip back to Australia since his Master's Triumph back in April.
Following the round Scott stated, "I wanted to come home straight away after winning, but thought if I come home and start celebrating I might not make it back"
Once tournament play began, Scott would not disappoint his hometown crowd as he ran away with the Australian PGA Championship by four strokes.
Late in the final round, Scott carried a one shot lead into the par 5 twelfth hole before play was halted due to local thunderstorms. Upon returning to play, Scott launched a 266 yard four iron right at the stick, nearly holing it for albatross. The tap in eagle slammed the door on his competitors, and Scott cruised to the four shot win.
"I came out and knew I had to do something great to win this," Scott said. "It's been an incredible year since April, and so great to come home. I've had a great week."
The win also gives Adam Scott the last of the three Australian Majors.
Scott wore a prototype FJ golf shoe and StaSof glove en route to his winning performance.

Great win for Adam, glad to see him play so well in front of his "own" crowd. Hope to see him on the top of the board for some more majors in 2014
AS's game is showing a lot of consistency lately. Great win!
Congratulations to AS and FJ on a win. AS seems to be on top of his game. He would be a great to represent FJ head to toe -- and in between shirts etc.
I hope AS keeps this up into the upcoming PGA season (I still can't count the new "early season"). We know FJ will be there all season long!
Well done Scotty! It must've aken quite a bit of restriant to wait until November to return to Australia after his historic win at Augusta. I was forunate enough to attend the Masters this year and it was incredible...for lack of a better descriptor.
Great to see Adam continue to win events. Really wish he'd move to a non-anchored stroke on the putter though! Really like him and his game but worried we'll see asterisks on all kinds of things.... :-(
Congrats to Adam, certainly been great 2012 / 2013 seasons. His hard work and commitment is duly paying off. All the best for the seasons to come!
Congrats to Adam & FJ. It must have been great forAdam to have a "home town" win.
Great win for Adam and he continues a great year. I love his golf swing and hope he enjoys continued success.
I'll be happy to test out a pair of the new prototype shoes Scotty has been sporting!
