Being in the Bahamas helps.
Scott spent the latter part of the year at home in Australia, and his main residence is in Switzerland. For years, his other home was in London, which was not always conducive to proper practice. The weather wasn't always the best, and there were plenty of distractions being on the outskirts of one of the world's great cities.
He is building a home at Albany, and he has been staying at another house there for the last year. The golf course is so quiet that Scott estimates only about 10 rounds are played there each day.
"It's great. It's what I need right now for the next 10 years — my prime," he said. "It's really conducive for me. A great fitness facility. A great practice facility. It's close to the states. It's what I need. I'm in an environmental to be productive in my game. I get so much more enjoyment in practicing really hard and then testing it out."
The big test comes this week.
