Scott bounces back with Australian Open course record
US Masters runner-up Spieth, the overnight leader, fought back with a birdie at the last for a one-over 72 to be three-under overall for the tournament, while Price has an afternoon hit-off. McIlroy is the defending champion after he overhauled Scott with a birdie at the final hole to win last year's tournament at Royal Sydney in what was his only 2013 tournament success. "We'll see how long that lasts," Scott said. Scott, who teed off at the 10th hole, had a much better time than on Thursday with an eagle and three birdies in an unblemished round after three bogeys and a double-bogey in his opening 18 holes. "Yesterday I got off to a bad start and in the wind it was tricky and I didn't scramble when I had to early in the round and it was slipping away from me," Scott said. Scott's round was highlighted by an eagle putt of three metres off a splendid five-iron approach at the par-five 14th followed by birdies at the 16th and 18th holes. The Australian only had one birdie on his homeward nine, putting off the green at the sixth hole. "It's an incredible different feeling of being two under to two over and about how you feel about the state of your game," Scott said.
