Adam Scott Adam Scott catches a wave off the shores of Carlsbad, Calif. (Sports Illustrated)

As Golfweek's Jim McCabe reports
Scott and Weatherley challenged something far more ferocious than Waialae CC. They surfed “The Pipeline” on Oahu’s North Shore, which is not for the faint of heart.
“There was 8-foot surf with 15-foot faces, they were huge,” said Weatherley. “We did some body-surfing. It was pretty insane. But we did it just to give him a little psyche, to get his blood running.
“After that, everything (in the Sony Open) is going to be easy.”
Scott, a surfing enthusiast, could not have asked for a better guide to ride the surf up at Ehukai Beach Park in Pupukea. Weatherley grew up in the area and has been around surfing all his life. Though he now lives in Encinitas, Calif., Weatherley is back home this week to relieve Scott’s fulltime caddie, Steve Williams, who has returned to New Zealand for an auto race competition.
