Adam Scott has been around professional golf for a time now. It’s part of the reason he recently joined the PGA Tour’s $60 million lifetime earnings club.

"I believe it indicates maybe increased longevity. If I try to find positives in stuff about myself these days, longevity, I’ve been out here a long time,

,” Scott said on Tuesday ahead of his 10th career start at the Sony Open in Hawaii. “Generally played at a high level, so it adds up.”

The Australian never had a career money objective in mind when he started professional back in 2000. In truth, his aims were fairly simple: win majors and make it to world No. 1.

“After a few years on Tour, like maybe many others if we’re all being honest, felt like they were going to be unattainable because (Tiger Woods) was so dominant at No. 1

and he was winning around two majors a year,” Scott added. “If I’m honest, my golf in the majors wasn’t even close to appearing dangerous,

so it was a strange first 10 years of my career, I believe, because I’m not sure that for whatever reason I kind of — I didn’t give up, but it looked a little bit unattainable.”

Scott believes those goals are now even more reachable at the age of 42.

This year, he remarked, "I'm playing the schedule I want to play." "I feel like I can prioritise whatever I need to do to win major competitions and put myself in a position

where I want to be kind of achieving those childhood aspirations now that I don't have to chase anything," the athlete said.
