Adam Scott had a difficult choice to make on the 15th hole at Riviera on Sunday as the Genesis Invitational winded down to a close. With a two-shot lead and in a rough spot, he could either go for it and get closer to the win or play it safe and likely end up tied for the lead once again.
In the end, he overcame the ‘safe’ thinking and went for it, producing a brilliant ‘flop’ shot that allowed him to make a huge bogey. It would lead to him finishing up the day with a -1 70 and at -11 for the tournament as a whole. It was his first PGA Tour win in almost four years, so it’s been well due for a man that has won 14 total events in his career.
