Adam Scott required I.V. on Saturday at Tour Championship

Masters champion Adam Scott required intravenous fluids on Saturday ahead of the third round of the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

According to Golf Channel producer Scott Rude, Scott received those fluids for approximately an hour.

Scott is in second place, four shots behind leader Henrik Stenson at 6-under 134 through 36 holes. With tee times moved up to accommodate forecast poor weather, Scott tees off with Stenson and 20-year-old Jordan Spieth at 9 a.m. ET for the third round.

If either Stenson or Scott win the Tour Championship, then they would win the FedEx Cup and its $10 million first-place prize. Tiger Woods, who entered the week at No. 1 in FedEx Cup points ahead of Stenson and Scott, can finish no worse than third in the final standings.
