SEASON IN REVIEW: Scott had an impressive run through the majors, finishing 15th or better in them all. His season will likely be remembered for his final-round swoon at the British Open, though, where he squandered a four-stroke lead on the final four holes and finished second. He seems to be peaking again in advance of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, posting consecutive top-10s, for the third time this year, in the Playoffs. — Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: Scott won the final event at East Lake that was played in November. The next year, the FedExCup was born, and Scott hasn’t been in the top five at East Lake since. He did tie for sixth at East Lake in 2011.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Scott:
Seems like he hasn’t played much golf this year but also seems like he’s building momentum in the FedExCup Playoffs. Watch his putting stroke. It’s all about rhythm. When Adam’s stroke gets quick, he starts missing putts.
