SYDNEY -- That burns a little bit.With that, Adam Scott summed up his 2013 Australian Open implosion at Royal Sydney and showed just how badly he wants to win at the same course this week.The world No.7 is the highest ranked Aussie vying for the Stonehaven Cup, a tournament another local Geoff Ogilvy described as a major for all Australian players.Yet it is even more personal for Scott after he walked up the 18th green at Royal Sydney with a one-shot lead in 2013, only to bogey and open the door for Rory McIlroy.I certainly feel like Id like to get a win here at Royal Sydney after what happened a few years ago - that burns a little bit, Scott said on Wednesday.Also to win the Aussie Open is special, but it would kind of cap off what was a good year but it would make it feel just that bit better because I got another win.Looking back on the 8-iron error that helped open the door for McIlroy, Scott lamented a lack of judgement that saw him miss out on a win that would have completed the Australian Triple Crown.Yeah I just, from memory, obviously the 18th hole stands out and I made an error on the last hole, one I couldnt afford to, Scott said.Its just the way the game goes. If Id just hit a pretty average shot to the front of the green and two-putted, Rory probably doesnt make his putt and I win the tournament. But I just slightly pushed the 8-iron and misjudged the wind, it goes over the green into a tough spot and make a five.And then the doors open for Rory and being such a great player, you know youve got to take those breaks when theyre given to you and he knocks it in. It was a shame because Id had such a great run down here, but maybe a good motivator for me this week to try and get out and do it all again.While McIlroy proved his tormentor in 2013, Scotts main challenge at Royal Sydney this time around will come from world No.5, American Jordan Spieth.The 23-year-old two-time major winner has travelled to Australia the last two years, a win in 2014 and runner-up finish in 2015, but he is getting his first look at Royal Sydney this week.Still, Scott wasnt sure whether his extra course knowledge would be a factor this week.Over Jordan? Maybe, Scott said when asked if he had the edge due to his local knowledge.I mean hes such a good player he can figure a course out pretty quickly.I think even though hes young hes already got so much experience, playing everywhere around the world which is I think to his advantage that hes coming out here and playing this event. And in some small way Im sure its going to help him, whether its with an Open Championship or something like that in the future.But the young guys playing around the world I think get so much experience and hes got a very mature head on his shoulders so hell figure it out.But just having played here a fair bit over the years I feel very comfortable and I might have a little bit of an advantage in that sense.While Scott will be the sentimental favourite with the local fans, there is no shortage of other Australian players capable of taking out the Stonehaven Cup. And it will likely be well received, too, given the flailing fortunes of Australias other leading sports teams.Well theres heaps of us playing so the odds are pretty good, Scott said with a smile when asked if he could deliver and Australian victory.Well Jason had a good year again, hes No.1 in the world - hes holding Australian sport high at the moment.

TORONTO -- The Blue Jays are running out of time to fix their startling power outage in the AL Championship Series.A trip home to hitter-friendly Rogers Centre for Game 3 was expected to produce a revival against the Indians on Monday night. Instead, it was more of the same for the run-starved Blue Jays, who scratched out seven hits against seven Cleveland pitchers in a 4-2 loss that put Toronto in a 3-0 series hole.Even a starting pitching disaster for Cleveland in front of a raucous Toronto crowd couldnt jump-start the Jays. Trevor Bauer left after four batters and two outs when a stitched-up cut on his right pinkie finger began to bleed, so the Indians bullpen pulled off its most impressive October feat yet -- getting 25 outs against one of the ALs most feared lineups.Today was a bullpen day for them and they came through, said Russell Martin, who went 0 for 4 and struck out three times.The Blue Jays have yet to lead in the series. Game 4 is Tuesday afternoon, and the test only gets tougher with Cy Young Award candidate Corey Kluber scheduled to start for Cleveland.Weve got our work cut out for us, Toronto manager John Gibbons said. Thats an understatement.Martins slump began during the regular season -- the four-time All-Star catcher is 5 for 54 with two RBI dating to Sept. 25.Hes not alone in his struggles this series. Jose Bautista is 1 for 9, Edwin Encarnacion 2 for 11 and Troy Tulowitzki 1 for 11. That trio combined for 88 homers in the regular season but hasnt gotten one yet in the ALCS.The Blue Jays scored 759 runs in the regular season, fifth most in the AL, and were fourth in the majors with 221 home runs. After beating Baltimore in the wild-card game, Toronto pounded out 22 runs and hit eight homers in a three-game sweep of Texas in the Division Series.Those booming bats have gone ice cold since. Michael Saunders ended the teams 28-inning homerless streak with a leadoff shot in the second inning, but Toronto has produced just three runs in three ALCS losses. The Blue Jays have 17 hits inn the series, 13 of them singles.ddddddddddddIts obviously tough, outfielder Kevin Pillar said. We got some big hits in the wild-card game and that kind of carried over to the Texas series. Its that simple. We just havent been able to execute when we need it.Seeking a spark, Gibbons shuffled his lineup for Game 3, moving Bautista into the leadoff spot and dropping Ezequiel Carrera to eighth. Bautista went 1 for 3 with a walk and a single, and Carrera had two hits.Saunders homer came off Dan Otero, Torontos first of the ALCS. Carrera tripled and scored in the fifth, giving the Blue Jays multiple extra-base hits in a game for the first time this series.Still, it wasnt enough to keep the Blue Jays from another offensive dud.Toronto struck out 25 times over the first two games and punched out nine times in Game 3. The Blue Jays again faltered when facing the back end of Clevelands bullpen, going 2 for 11 against Cody Allen and Andrew Miller. Toronto is 3 for 29 from the seventh inning on in the series so far.The Blue Jays did put runners at first and second with two outs in the seventh against Allen on Monday, but reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson ended the inning by lining out hard to left field on the first pitch, with Coco Crisp making a sliding catch.Toronto rallied from a 0-2 deficit to beat Texas in last years ALDS, then fell behind 0-2 to Kansas City in the ALCS before losing the series in six games.Weve had our backs up against the wall before, Saunders said. Were going to draw on that experience and come back for Game 4.Despite the slump, Gibbons believes the Blue Jays are due to erupt before the series concludes.It hasnt happened yet, Gibbons said. But Ive seen it too many times. Hopefully tomorrow is that day. Well see.Like his manager, Martin remained optimistic that Torontos drought was due to end.Maybe were just saving it for Games 4, 5, 6 and 7, he said. I hope so. ' ' '
