Scott positive for Firestone after Brit Open flop

After letting slip a four-shot lead with four holes to play at the British Open, Adam Scott could have been forgiven for wanting to take some time off. To his credit he has picked himself up and headed over to this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to defend his title at Firestone.

"I'm disappointed that I didn't win from that position, but I left that major the same as I've left every other one, and that's empty-handed," Scott told reporters at Firestone Country Club on Wednesday.

"I've been disappointed a lot of times at majors, even though I've never been closer to (winning) one. There wasn't that much healing for me.

"My game is in really great shape, and I just took a few days to rest up. I certainly analyzed the last few holes a little bit and took out of it what I wanted, then just thought about how great I played."

Joining an elite field of 78 for the prestigious event, Scott feels the best way to cope with the bitter disappointment is to get back out on the course and return to winning ways.

"It's just nice to be playing straightaway again and get out there," said the 32-year-old, an eight-times winner on the PGA Tour.

"I'm obviously playing well, so it's important that I should be confident here, try and build my own confidence and pick up some momentum as we come into a really important stretch to the year.

"The disappointment of Lytham shouldn't hold me back from taking advantage of the way I'm playing at the moment. I felt like it was my week and I played like a champion, but I played four poor holes at the end, and you can't win and do that."
