Adam Scott: I wear the Masters green jacket when I’m alone

Reigning Masters champion Adam Scott isn't afraid to admit it: He loves having the green jacket with him.

Speaking ahead of this week's Tour Championship in Atlanta, Scott said he was excited to travel home to Australia in the coming weeks, being able to spend time with friends and family whose support led to that first Masters victory by an Australian-born player.

Scott said the biggest thrill people get when they have seen him post-Masters win is the green jacket itself. He says they're shocked to see the authentic green jacket in person.

Then again, it seems like Scott is still enamored with it, maybe shocked that it's his. Scott says he wears it all the time when he's alone.

"It's here with me. It comes pretty much everywhere," Scott said. "I wear it in my hotel room...all the myself. Sometimes it gets packed away, but I don't mind carrying it a lot."

Scott will get another seven months to wear the jacket whenever he wants. When he returns to Augusta National next April to defend his title, he'll have to hand back the jacket to the club, which will store that jacket in his compartment in the champions' locker room.
