Adam Scott looking to regain momentum at Riviera Country Club

He has returned this week to compete in the Genesis Open, and he's hoping to regain the momentum he picked up here last year.

“Sniffing a victory really motivated me to go to Honda and take advantage of my game, my swing working into good shape and everything feeling very easy, which doesn't happen too often in golf, as we all know,” Scott said Wednesday during his news conference.

Scott went on to win both the Honda Classic and the World Golf Championship at Doral last year following his near-miss at Riviera. He then struggled a bit until finishing in the top 10 in all four FedEx Cup playoff events.

Scott has not played yet in 2017, but he finished with five top-14 finishes worldwide during the fall.

This year, he hopes to establish momentum early and carry throughout the season.

“That's how I felt those three weeks, but then that didn't show up again for the rest of the year so I would love to know what it is and how to keep that momentum going because I only managed to do it three weeks,” he said.

Scott is currently ranked No. 7 in the world rankings, just behind the "Big 6" battling for the top spot.
