Scott has Australian Open albatross on par-5 8th

Adam Scott holed out with his second shot on the par-5 eighth

hole Thursday for an albatross during the first round of the

Australian Open.

Scott’s shot on the 557-yard hole bounced a few feet in front of

the pin and rolled in, reminiscent of a shot the Australian made

for eagle on the 18th hole at the HSBC Champions last Saturday in

Shanghai, China.

The albatross Thursday turned around his 1-over start to put him

at 2-under 33 through nine holes.
