Scott trying to stay grounded

Masters champion Adam Scott admits he has been "floating in the clouds" since his victory at Augusta, but has shunned celebrations in his native Australia as he focuses on more major titles.

Scott returns to action at The Players Championship at Sawgrass, almost a month after his memorable victory over Angel Cabrera on the second play-off hole.

"I was very tempted to go home but I talked it over with the people around me and we are in the middle of the year," Scott told a pre-tournament press conference. "It's a cause for celebration but we have a plan in place and hopefully it's not going to stop with the Masters."

He added: "I want to keep focused and try and make this my biggest year yet. I think we can rustle up some celebration when I get home at the end of the year."

"I've had a really nice break, which I had planned anyway, but it was even better because I was floating around on the clouds the last three weeks. It's been an overwhelming time for me, so many people reached out to me, I was blown away.

"I put the clubs away for a week longer than I normally would to just unwind and get away, but the last week I had Brad (Malone) my coach back with me on the range, we quickly got back into it and after a couple of days the swing was still feeling good.

"You get itchy feet and are ready to get back out here and compete and I am looking forward to this week. It's a nice week to come back because I have had such a great run here over the years (becoming the youngest winner in 2004). Hopefully I can take my head out of the clouds, come back down to earth and play some good golf."
