Adam Scott: Girlfriend didn't cause slump

Anna-ivanovic-ausmas_439 Back home in Australia
for Tigerpalooza (the event formerly known as the Australian Masters) and coming
off a T3 finish at the Barclays Singapore Open, Adam Scott sounds like
he's ready to put his 2009 slump behind him. Scott's still
not sure what caused his drop from 3rd to 62nd in the world rankings,
but he's sure it wasn't his relationship with tennis player Ana
Ivanovic
as some commentators suggested, according to The Sydney
Morning Herald
. However, while Scott said he paid no heed to the speculation -
partly because he had not been home since March - he is adamant his
relationship with Ivanovic, who is with him in Melbourne this week,
had played no part in a form slump during which he twice felt like
taking a long break from the game.

''I don't know how to respond to that,'' Scott told the Herald of talk golf had not been his main priority. ''Should
I not have a girlfriend? I tried to do everything that I felt was
100 per cent right for me this year. I wasn't working on the right
things for a period of time and it took a long time to work out
what was right again.''
Fellow Tour Player Retief Goosen believes that Scott's game will return to
form, but he's got other ideas about what caused his slump. "Scotty's
still young and he has a lot of hot chicks on his mind," Goosen said in
the November issue of Golf Magazine. "I'm sure once he gets over that
his game will be back." Photo: Quinn Rooney/Getty ImagesFollow Mike Walker on Twitter.
