11:36 AM ET 12.01 | After leading nearly the entire way at the Australian Open, Adam Scott's putter deserted him on the back nine, his approach sailed over the green on the 72nd hole, and the man biding to become just the second player to capture the Australian triple crown was left wondering what could have been. With a two-shot swing on the final green -- Rory McIlroy holed a 15-footer for birdie, Scott bogeyed after two-putting from 50 feet -- Scott came agonizingly short Sunday in his attempt to win all three Australian majors -- and even the team portion of the World Cup. "It's just the way golf is," Scott told reporters afterward, via the Sydney Morning Herald. "I'm gutted. I felt like I never had a better chance to win the Aussie Open."

Harry, I hear you my man.

I know a guy who can even the score. (For a small sum, of course.)

Keegan Bradley's pre-shot routine is still annoying to watch.
