SYDNEY (AP) Adam Scott shot a 5-under 66 Friday to put himself back in contention at the Australian Open after starting the round in danger of missing the cut.
Starting on the 10th tee, Scott made quick amends for a 74 Thursday which left him in 82nd place. He eagled the par-5 14th and had two birdies to make the turn in 32, then birdied the par-4 sixth coming home at The Australian Golf Club.
He was tied for fifth at 2-under with the afternoon field just beginning their rounds.
