Adam Scott has opened up on the sacrifices he has made juggling family commitments with the pressures of elite golf and is determined to reward his clan with a second major championship victory.
The former World No.1, who won the PGA Tour's Genesis Invitational in February, has bases in Australia, the Bahamas and Switzerland.
He travelled to the US in early July to prepare for this week's US PGA Championship and will remain in America until after September's US Open.
The 40-year-old admits nine weeks without his wife, Marie, and their two children, Bo Vera and Byron, will be tough given they are in Switzerland.
"Everyone from my parents, who have always been there, to my wife and kids, they have all made a lot of sacrifices," World No.9 Scott told AAP.
"The kids don't grasp that yet, but my wife makes a lots of sacrifices. They go long periods without seeing me."
"My family and my team can see how much more I still want out of my career, so I think that's why they're prepared to make these sacrifices." - Adam Scott.
Scott commuted to the US from Australia through the 2017 PGA Tour season while Marie was pregnant with their son Byron due to concerns about the Zika virus in the Bahamas.
In March, 14-time US Tour winner Scott took the family back to Australia for four months while golf was cancelled.
With COVID-19 significantly altering travel plans this year, Scott and his family will remain in Switzerland until at least the end of 2020.
He will obtain special exemptions to return to Switzerland and then come back to the US for November's Masters at Augusta National.
Scott says the back and forth adds motivation to his bid for an elusive second major title to go with the historic 2013 Masters win.
"Generally, as a golfer I'm selfish anyway, so I want to win it for myself but with any achievement I hope my family and my team get some satisfaction out of it," Scott said.
"I want to make it all worthwhile for everybody because I'm also a person who likes to please those close to me.
"My family and my team can see how much more I still want out of my career, so I think that's why they're prepared to make these sacrifices.
"I treat it seriously and I don't think they'd make those sacrifices if I wasn't this focussed.
"It's exciting for me to think about playing seven majors in the next 11 months, especially at this point in my career.
"I'd love to win a second major championship. It's all I focus on, really."
Scott is one of just three golfers at the 156-player PGA Championship to have played the 2005 World Golf Championships American Express, the 2009 Presidents Cup and the 2015 WGC Match Play at TPC Harding Park.
Scott will be joined at the PGA by fellow Australians Jason Day, Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith, Matt Jones and Lucas Herbert.
