Masters champion Adam Scott is taking a six-week break after Hawaii, meaning he will skip the Match Play Championship.

Scott has never missed the Match Play Championship since he first became eligible in 2002. But since the World Golf Championship moved to Arizona in 2007, he hasn't stuck around very long. Scott was beaten in the opening round the last three years, and he has not advanced beyond the second round since 2005 when it was at La Costa Resort north of San Diego.

Scott is playing the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua and then Sony Open at Honolulu next week. He says he won't play again until the Honda Classic, missing the entire West Coast Swing.

Scott enters the year at No. 2 in the world behind Tiger Woods.
