Adam Scott is hoping to break new ground in this week's Ballantine's Championship just outside Seoul.

The Australian has won four of his eight European Tour titles on Asian soil but that list which features triumphs in China, Singapore and Qatar (twice) doesn't include a victory in South Korea.

The world number 12 hopes to put that right at the Blackstone Golf Club in Incheon this week and he's the favourite with the bookies to do so.

"I've come over here to get myself into contention. I feel confident."

"It's true that I've enjoyed playing in Asia over the years and I have had a certain amount of success which is great," Scott said.

"I'd love to add Korea to the list of countries that I've won in because this tournament has certainly grown in stature.

"I think that's shown by the players who have come over here to play so it would be a great honour to win this week, and I hope I've got a chance."

Scott's last start saw him finish tied eighth in The Masters at Augusta so he's happy with his game ahead of his 0730 tee-off alongside Alex Noren of Sweden and local hero Bae Sang-moon.

Important week

"For me it's an important week to keep my form coming out of the Masters and heading into the rest of the season," said Scott, who jumped into the top 10 at Augusta for the second year running after a fast-finishing six-under 66.

"I've come over here to get myself into contention. I feel confident. I thought my form going into the Masters was good.

"I felt comfortable with everything. But for lots of reasons in the game of golf, it didn't quite happen the first three days at Augusta and then I managed to put it all together on Sunday.

"I was pleased with the finish. I probably would have been a little disappointed in my efforts and the work I had done if I did not finish so high up."
