Adam Scott's Golf Master Class

At the recent 2013 Masters Tournament, Adam Scott played near-perfect golf, becoming the first Australian to win the major. Even before the win, Scott, who came close to donning the green jacket in 2010, was seen by those inside and out of the game as having the model technique. He's a natural ball-striker, to use their jargon. He just needed to make most of every shot on every day of one weekend tournament. Now he has.

Just before the tournament, Scott was generous enough to make some time for 'Men's Journal' to talk about his cars (he drives an SLS AMG Roadster), his favorite drive, and a few tips on playing golf. "It's amazing, it's beautiful," he told us when asked to describe the conditions at the Augusta National Golf Club, where the annual Masters takes place. Those same words describe Scott's smooth stroke, so we asked the 32-year-old right-hander from down under – now third-ranked golfer in the world – to share tips on six types of golf shots. Try these on your next weekend golf outing and you'll go from tee to green like a Master.
