ADAM SCOTT clearly is a player at the peak of his form right now ... even landing a rare birdie at the menacing and hotly controversial par-3 15th hole at The Highlands Course.

"I found it quite easy today," joked last Sunday's winner in Ohio shortly after signing for a one-under-par 69. "I just hit a hybrid onto the green and I made the putt for two, so I don't know what all the fuss was about. No, seriously, that hole's not fun to play. It's intimidating for sure."

The tee at 15 was moved up seven yards yesterday, so it played 'just' 253. In all, 12 tees were moved forward a total of 110 yards, reducing the course from 7,467 yards to 7,357.
