SYDNEY — Adam Scott has lifted three trophies in three weeks – two from his Australian PGA and Australian Masters wins – and one he shared with Australian teammate Jason Day at last week's World Cup at Royal Melbourne.

On Thursday, Scott begins his attempt to complete a Triple Crown in Australia when he begins play in the Australian Open at Royal Sydney, which is hosting the country's national championship for the 14th time.

He'll play in the same threesome on Thursday and Friday with Day, who also won the individual stroke-play event at the World Cup, and American Kevin Streelman.

The other major threat to what Australian media are calling the ''Scotty Slam'' is Rory McIlroy, who admitted Wednesday that ''it's been a long year, mentally more than physically.''
