Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. • The worst thing about returning to golf for Adam Scott is that he had to leave the green jacket behind.

In the three weeks since becoming the first Australian to win the Masters, Scott says he has walked to his closet each morning and slipped on the green jacket. He left that behind at his home in the Bahamas. Now it's back to golf at The Players Championship.

Scott spent a few days in New York after winning the Masters, and the rest of the time he has been on an island. He says he was tempted to go home to Australia to celebrate, but he is reminding himself that the season is still young. He wants to win more majors.

The Players Championship gets under way Thursday with the strongest field in golf.
