Adam Scott: "Tiger will break Nicklaus record"

Adam Scott may have upset the odds and prevented heavy favourite Tiger Woods from winning the Masters on Sunday, but the Australian is certain that it's only a matter of time before the 14-time major champion ends his major drought, and goes on to break Jack Nicklaus' 18 major record.

"I absolutely believe he will," Scott said. "I have learned in my career, and I have played through his prime the whole time, which has been hard because he was so dominant, but I never doubt what he is capable of on a golf course.

"He's just proven us all wrong so many times if you doubt him, and he'll find a way to do it, for sure. I believe that."

Woods had looked in good nick coming into the Masters but went through major controversy for dropping a ball away from its original divot on Friday and signing an incorrect score card.

Had Woods not broken the rules, he would have been at 7-under after birdying No. 15 on Sunday, one stroke off the lead at the time. But a two-stroke penalty, coupled with bogeys on No. 5 and 7 early on in the final round, dug him a hole too deep to climb out of.

Instead it was Scott who emerged triumphant defeating Argentine Angel Cabrera in a play-off to win his first major championship.
