THREE-TIME Barclays Singapore Open champion Adam Scott is in town again, but this time, it is for a good cause.
During a visit to the National Institute of Education on Friday morning, the Australian golfer held a dialogue session with staff and students of NTU's Bachelor of Science in Sport Science and Management degree programme. Four students there were recipients of scholarships - worth $30,000 each - through the Adam Scott Foundation Asia (ASFA).
Later in the day, the world No 26 helped launch Greens on Screens - an indoor golf simulation centre - at Duxton Road. The company donated $10,000 to ASFA, and has pledged to give a percentage of its green and membership fees to Scott's cause.
Said the golfer: "These funds will contribute substantially to what our foundation aims to achieve in Singapore, by putting some young people through university, who wouldn't have a chance to be there otherwise."
Scott will be in action in Arizona next week for the WGC Accenture Match-Play Championship, where he is set to meet American Ben Crane in the opening round.
