Scott returns to PGA Tour at Cadillac Championship
Adam Scott will end his near three month sabbatical from the game when he tees off at this week’s World Golf Championship – Cadillac Championship in Miami.
Scott has enjoyed an extended break at his Sanctuary Cove home since that marathon playoff loss to Greg Chalmers at the Australian PGA at Royal Pines in mid-December.

He also become a father for the first time when wife Marie gave birth to a daughter, Bo Vera, on February 15 on the Gold Coast.
However, his tournament preparation for a tilt at a second Masters Green Jacket in April begins this week although Scott has been working hard on his fitness and game under the eye of coach and brother-in-law Brad Malone over the summer months.
If past form is any indication, Scott should get off to a strong start on his return.
Scott played just three events prior to his 2013 Masters triumph, including a third place finish at the Cadillac after a final round 64 in his final start before Augusta that year.
This year, the now world number five he will play the Cadillac and is expected to play three weeks straight at the Valspar Championship at the Innisbrook Resort, where fellow Queenslander John Senden will defend his title, and the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill from March 22.
After a fortnight’s break, it’s then on to Augusta to attempt to ruin Rory McIlroy’s party as the Northern Irishman attempts a career Grand Slam with a Masters win to add to his major collection.
Joining Scott in the limited field event at Doral this week will be fellow Aussies Jason Day, Geoff Ogilvy, John Senden, Fiji International champion Stephen Jeffress and Scott’s Australian PGA conqueror, Greg Chalmers.
