- Scott was extremely solid with the putter all week at Royal Pines. The 39-year-old holing a number of key putts on Sunday, including his eagle third at the par-5 15th. Scott told Golf Australia magazine that his long putter, that he now uses unanchored from his chest, is three inches shorter than the putter he used when anchoring the club to his sternum and winning the Masters in 2013. Like all long putter users, Scott has found it hard to find split grips, needing Scotty Cameron to cut a one piece grip in two, the now two-time Australian PGA winner believing he now putts better using the long putter unanchored than he did when anchroing.
- Scott's win makes it a double for Titleist Pro V1 golf balls at the two biggest tournaments in men's Australian golf after Matt Jones' win at the Australian Open, and delivers the brand's ninth win from the past 10 Australian PGA Championship since 2010.
“It's been a long time between drinks for me and maybe only once or twice did the thought cross my mind that I'll never win again. It feels very good to win here, especially to finish the year off kind of winning at home.” – Adam Scott
