Adam Scott is happy to be back at Augusta

Sky Bet

Adam Scott has to pinch himself every time he watches replays of his 2013 Masters win.

The Australian says he still finds it hard to believe he fulfilled a lifelong dream by landing his first Green Jacket.

Twelve months ago Scott became the first Australian to triumph at Augusta and he admits he is still coming to terms with his play-off victory over Argentina's Angel Cabrera.

"I try to put that Green Jacket on at least once a day," the world No 2 said. "But the feeling I have is that I've got to pinch myself to realise that was me who achieved what I did last year.

"I don't watch it too much on TV. It's emotional for me, it's also hard to believe it's actually me in that position.

"It all takes on a different level of focus in the majors, especially late in the rounds, and you just can't believe you can execute the way you have."

Now that he has finally crossed the line to triumph in a major after a string of near misses, Scott does not want to be known as a one-hit wonder.

"I've performed extremely consistently in the last couple of years," he said. "Realistically I've given myself two or three chances to win and won one of them.

"I'm happy with that because the trend is going in the right direction and I've just got to keep that going, strike while the iron is hot and keep creating these chances.

"Winning one major is fantastic but I feel like I've got a lot of good golf ahead of me. I might only have a small window of opportunity where I'm going to be doing it in the majors and I'm going to need to keep my foot on the gas.

"I feel like the more I play and the more I compete at this level the more I'm going to win but I've got to keep putting in the work. I'm not there because I just show up and get lucky, I've worked hard to get into this position."

Scott also revealed he will serve 'bugs' to former Masters winners when they gather on Tuesday for the annual Champions Dinner at Augusta National.

However, the 'bugs' he has ordered are Moreton Bay bugs, a type of lobster from northeastern Australia.

"They are legitimate bugs, the real deal," he said. "I'm not going to serve up anything second rate. I've got to go all-out to impress these guys.

"Hopefully the other guys can get past the name and enjoy a nice bit of our seafood from home. But I think they are going to be pretty happy with what I serve up, and particularly the wine."
