Adam Scott ‘understands’ tension at 2023 Masters: ‘Some players are fired up’

Adam Scott “understands” why there may be tension at this year’s Masters Tournament and branded the current situation “weird”.

Scott, winner at Augusta in 2013, will be teeing it up at the year’s first Major for the 22nd time in his career.

However, a cloud of controversy remains over the event as PGA Tour stars are set to play alongside LIV Golfers for the first time in Masters history.

When asked on the FPG podcast if he felt any “tension” heading to Augusta this year, Scott replied: “Not for me, but I can understand.

“There are some people who are fired up over the kinda divide going on.

“It is interesting because there’s a lawsuit going on that involves players, on both sides of it. That’s weird and I’m glad I’m not involved in any of that.”

The traditional Champions Dinner could feature some apprehension with LIV Golf’s Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia and Patrick Reed all set to be present as former winners.

However, the Australian hopes the focus remains on Scottie Scheffler’s achievement from last year.

“I hope there isn’t a bad vibe,” added Scott. “We’ve got to remember it’s Scottie Scheffler’s night and he deserves to have a great night.

“Every year I’ve been in there I feel like we all respect each other’s accomplishments of what we’ve been able to achieve at the Masters.

“He should be able to feel that too, not guys throwing daggers at each other.”

Scott’s last top ten finish at Augusta came in 2017 where he finished in a share of ninth place.
