Great Scott! Adam in the bunker over Olympic snub

Australia’s Adam Scott has come in for criticism after announcing he would be unavailable for the Rio Olympics,
because of his busy schedule.


Aged 78, Australian swimming great Dawn Fraser laid into Scott, she said:
“Well done Adam great to put your country on hold so that you can fulfil your own schedule.”
Others have come to his defence saying golf has no place in the Olympic Games.
