Just a few weeks ago, when the Byron Nelson Championship winner was announced, some put the "N" next to the name of Adam Scott, the winner of the Riviera Classic.

Scott, who was paired with Doug Garwood on Sunday in the final round, received a well-deserved nod as the MVP of this event. He never missed a shot during a four-round stretch of 24 birdies.

Scott has missed four straight cuts and only three times finished in the top 10 in five starts at Riviera.

"Hopefully, I can do the same thing this week," he said.

He said he's back to feeling good, playing well and thinking positively on the golf course.

"I'm playing the right way," he said. "I think that's what got me here at Riviera."

Admittedly, he didn't feel great the day he left his ball in the water and took double bogey. He missed some short putts early in the round, but he gathered himself to make eight birdies in a nine-hole stretch on Saturday and finished at 25-under 264.

But, as Scott said, his focus on where he is at has kept him out of deep trouble and kept the conversation on his consistent play. Scott is glad the attention now shifts to the tournament.

"I've been doing the same thing the last few weeks, which is to, whenever it gets late, it just says, take a deep breath, calm yourself down, and just try to play the best you can," he said.
