Former UNLV golfer Adam Scott on Sunday fell two strokes short at the Masters of becoming the first Rebel to win a major.
South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel birdied the final four holes Sunday for a 6-under-par 66, edging Scott and Jason Day by one stroke for the title. Schwartzel finished at 14-under for the tournament, with Scott and Day at 12-under.
Scott carded a 5-under-par 67 on Saturday and Sunday, and briefly held a share of the lead in a tightly contested Masters where five golfers were in contention late.
“I feel like my game is in great shape,” Scott told CBS. “It was great to make this run this week. I had a ball out there.”
