Golf Notes: Adam Scott and Ana Ivanovic?

Posted at 10:55 AM by Jim Gorant | Categories: Adam Scott

Ana-ivanovic-adam-scott ... Word on the cart paths of Bethpage had it that Adam Scott has gone so flowing-mane-over-soft-spikes for Ana Ivanovic (right), the statuesque tennis player from Serbia who's ranked 12th  in the world, that he will skip Tiger Woods's AT&T National  to attend Wimbledon.

... Ian Poulter seems to be taking on Stewart Cink for the title of  golf's Twitter champ. On Sunday, Cink led in followers, 374,507 to  80,071, but Poulter earned points last week by taking on the USGA in 140 characters or less and  tweeting running commentary on the movie The Hangover, which he went to see during last Friday's rain delay.

... Stat of the week: three -- as in, only three of 109 U.S. Opens have finished on Monday because of weather (1926, '65 and 2009).

... The late finish meant that five players -- Retief Goosen, Todd Hamilton, Anthony Kim, Camilo Villegas and Bubba Watson -- had to bail on the CVS Caremark Charity Classic, an unofficial annual  event in Rhode Island run by Billy Andrade and Brad Faxon. Luckily, CVS had a Band-Aid ready, bringing in Brad Adamonis, Matt Kuchar, David Toms, Brittany Lincicome and Laura Diaz.

...  Last week SI contributing writer Jack McCallum camped in an RV near Bethpage (follow his tale at golf.com/rv), where the most popular player was amateur Drew Weaver, who proved so genuine and personable that one campground family named their cat after him.
