SCOTT’S DRIVER: Adam Scott played the final 10 holes without a driver.

Scott was playing with a new Titleist 909 driver Thursday, and after using it at the par-5 eighth hole, he called for a rules official after hearing a rattle.

If the official declared the club unplayable, Scott could have replaced it without penalty.

But the ruling was that the club could still be played, so Scott simply took it out of play himself and went the rest of the way with 13 clubs in his bag. He could have hit driver on seven of his remaining 10 holes.

Titleist spokesman Joe Gomes said the rattle was likely caused by a piece of loose epoxy that became separated from the head following the manufacturing process.

A Titleist technician who had just arrived in Tampa in advance of next week’s Transitions Championship built Scott two new replacement drivers Thursday, and was driving them to Miami so Scott could have them before Friday’s second round.

Scott shot 71, finishing six shots off the lead. reports.
