Woods: Scott is right; Aussie fans shouldn't cheer me at Presidents Cup

NASSAU, Bahamas – If Tiger Woods is keeping track of any bulletin-board material for next week’s matches in Australia, Adam Scott’s comments from earlier in the week will likely not be among the collection.

Scott told Australia’s Herald Sun on Monday that he hopes Australian fans don’t cheer for Woods and the rest of the U.S. Presidents Cup team at Royal Melbourne.

“Last time it was too friendly,” Scott said. “Quite bluntly, we want the home-crowd advantage, and I'll be disappointed if they are cheering enthusiastically for Tiger or anyone on the U.S. team.”

Asked about Scott’s plea to the Aussies, Woods, the American playing captain, agreed.
