Australian Open: 'Put me with Rory McIlroy' pleads Adam Scott

Adam Scott is pleading with organisers of the Australian Open to play in the same group as Rory McIlory at this year’s tournament in Sydney.
Twelve months ago Scott missed the chance to win his own national championship when an error on the final hole allowed McIlroy to take the title by a single shot.
The duo, now ranked No 1 and No 2 in the world, tee-up again this year when the event starts on November 27.
And Aussie Scott believes he and the Ulsterman should be paired together for the opening two rounds.
Scott said: "I believe the organisers should take advantage and put Rory and myself together because it does happen occasionally at US Opens where they pair the players according to their rankings.
It's not often we have the world’s number one and number two ranked players in the same tournament in Australia
"It's not often we have the world’s number one and number two ranked players in the same tournament in Australia and it would be fun to do, and I would certainly enjoy that."
Regarding last year’s slip up at Royal Sydney, where Scott bogeyed the 72nd hole which McIlroy birdied, he went on: "It annoyed me for a little while.
"To mess up on the very last hole of the last of the four tournaments I played back home last year was very, very frustrating."
