“There was not much else for me to do other than birdie the last four holes, also, like Charl did,” Scott joked. “I’ve watched a lot of Masters, seen a lot of finishes (and) when you’re a one-shot lead on 17 and you make two fours, that usually puts you somewhere in a playoff or maybe win. But I wasn’t even close.”
