Adam Scott to extend record major streak

Must read

Five days after losing a playoff in Columbus, Ohio in a qualifier, the Australian is in position to earn a spot via world rankings to play at Pinehurst No.2 and extend his major streak to 92.

The top 60 players in the rankings are given starts at Pinehurst for the major which begins early Friday AEST.

Although Scott was expected to drop from 60th to 61st in the rankings this week, he will still qualify No.61 due to the late Grayson Murray still being ranked.

Murray, who died on May 25, was No.61 this week, and given the rolling two-year formula, he could climb back into the top 60.

Scott has played in every major since the 2001 British Open. The 43-year-old Australian won the 2013 Masters.

The next longest major streak among active players is 44, belonging to American Jordan Spieth.

Tiger Woods’ record is 46 in a row.

Last week fellow Australian Cam Davis beat Scott on the third hole of a playoff during a long day of U.S Open qualifying.

Scott has a spot in next month’s British Open and will compete at the Masters next year as a past champion.
