Adam Scott: I can be world's greatest golfer

Australia's Adam Scott believes he can follow his breakthrough Masters victory by becoming the dominant player in the world.

Speaking ahead of his defence of the Australian Masters title at Royal Melbourne, world number two Scott said winning the event at Kingston Heath last year had been an important step in his rise to becoming a major champion in Augusta last April.

"People say you haven't achieved everything in golf unless you've won the Open at St Andrew's," Scott said.

"But for an Australian I think to win a tournament at Royal Melbourne is the same kind of thing and I'd love to do that."

However it is success on the world stage that Scott is craving ahead of the new year and defending his Masters crown is a major goal.

"I've really felt the last few years my level of understanding of that golf course grew and then obviously culminated in winning this year," Scott said.

"I'm really looking forward to going back and I feel I have an opportunity to develop even more there and become a dominant player like a Phil Mickelson or a Tiger Woods there.

"I have the opportunity, I'm not saying I'm going to.

"But I've got a bit of momentum going so I'm really looking forward to that."
