World ranking: 3.
Worldwide wins: 20.
Majors: Masters (2013).
Best US Open performance: Tie for 15th in 2012 at The Olympic Club.
US Open memory: Being the third wheel when the USGA grouped together the top three players in the world ranking in 2008. The other two were Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Backspin: It seems only Tiger Woods gets questions about a Grand Slam when he wins the Masters. Scott at least deserves the question. He is playing less, practicing more and always looks ready when he shows up at a tournament. If he hadn’t blown the British Open, he would have two of the last three majors. He plans to play Merion seven times before it counts.
