Scott sets his sights on Aus Open and beyond

Australia’s number two Adam Scott is currently sitting pretty in the top 10 in the official world rankings.

But with the Australian Open set to begin tomorrow, Scott plans to go all the way to the top of the leaderboard.

“I'm not that far away," Australia's 2011 joint Masters runner-up said yesterday. "I know Luke [Donald] has a pretty good lead on No 2 at the moment. I'm sitting at No 8.”

"With consistent play over the next year, I believe that No 1 is certainly attainable.

"It is the first time in my career as a professional that it has been realistic for me.”

Restored to the world's top 10 after a stellar season in America, refreshed from a surfing trip in Mexico and high on confidence after an 11th placing in Shanghai on Sunday, Scott will tee off at The Lakes as the Open's equal title favourite with Tiger Woods.

"For nine years, no one played at the level Tiger played at. He is slightly off, but he is on his way back it seems.

"It is a good time for me to take advantage of that and hopefully beat him to the punch."

Before that he tames the Tiger, Scott will need to chase down his nation’s number one, Jason Day, who’s a step ahead of him at number 7 in the world.

Greg Norman this week put the 23-year-old a fraction ahead of Scott in the race to No 1.
