Adam Scott is targeting his third straight victory on the PGA Tour at this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The Australian has enjoyed a fine start to the season since switching from his long putter to the conventional flat stick in the autumn, culminating in back-to-back victories at the the Honda Classic and the WGC-Cadillac Championship.
The former world number one is now looking to become the first player since Rory McIlroy in 2014 to win three straight PGA Tour events and says he is full of confidence heading into the tournament at Bay Hill.
He said: “You have got to take advantage of it (form) while it’s there. That’s the big thing, and obviously I feel confident I can play well this week.”
Scott has had mixed fortunes at the event in the past, finishing tied for 35th last year, whilst he led heading into the final round in 2014 before ending up in third place.
The 35-year-old admits that he is looking forward to competing at Bay Hill Club and Lodge, as he looks to fine tune his game ahead of the Masters.
He added: “I’ve always liked the golf course. I think it’s a good test of where your game is at and some preparation for what’s to come. It is exciting and certainly challenging.”
Scott will be part of the featured group during Thursday’s first round alongside American Brandt Snedeker and world number seven Henrik Stenson, who narrowly missed out on victory at the event 12 months ago.
