Adam Scott has won the WGC Cadillac World Championship after finishing the tournament with a score of 12-under-par. The Australian finished one shot ahead of Bubba Watson and two shots clear of Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett.

Scott started off well but struggled in his third round, scoring one-over-par. However, he recovered in his final round, scoring an impressive three-under-par to secure a tournament victory. It looked as though Rory McIlroy would win the tournament going into the final round, but the Northern Irishman hit a final round two-over-par to finish the tournament on ten-under.

McIlroy was pushed into third placed by Bubba Watson, who also enjoyed an impressive final round. The American has been in good from this year and his four-under-par final round meant he finished the tournament just a single shot behind Scott.

Phil Mickelson finished the tournament in fifth place, finishing the tournament on nine-under-par. Mickelson hasn’t been at his best lately, but his performance is evidence that the left-handed is American is far from finished yet. Jimmy Walker finished on eight-under while Englishman Paul Casey finished on six-under.

The event was not one to remember for Steven Bowditch, who finished the tournament bottom of the leaderboard with a final score of 37-over-par. Patrick Reed and Victor Dubuisson also had a disappointing tournament. Both players finished up on nine-over-par.

The victory sees Scott move up to number six in the world rankings. The Australian has now won back to back tournaments after winning The Honda Open in February. Scott will be expected to continue to do well as this year’s bigger competitions and will be hoping to add to his haul of Majors. McIlroy will be keen to put the disappointment behind him as he searches to reclaim the number one ranking off American Jordan Spieth.
