GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) — After being treated like a rock star for most of Wednesday's pro-am at the Australian PGA, Adam Scott left the course with the keys to the city.
It was that kind of day for Scott, who is making his first appearance back home after winning the Masters in April, the first win at Augusta by any Australian.
Scott grew up in the Gold Coast area and will begin play Thursday in the Australian PGA, the first of four consecutive weeks he'll play Down Under.
On Wednesday, his pro-am group was followed by a large gallery. Shouts of encouragement and congratulations were frequent around the Royal Pines resort course, and Scott often stopped to sign autographs and chat to locals.
