The world golf number two Adam Scott now has green and gold jackets as currenty holder of the US and Australian Masters titles after succssefully defending his title at Royal Melbourne.

Having won the Australian PGA Championship a week early on returning home to Queensland, Scott survived a late wobble and a charge from world No.8 Matt Kuchar to successfully defend his title by two strokes after the American blew up on the last two holes, dropping three shots.

Auckland golfer Ryan Fox had one of the best results of his career, finishing in a two-way tie for fifth place.

Within minutes of clinching the title, Scott declared he and Jason Day would win the World Cup for Australia, which starts on Wednesday, also at Royal Melbourne.
