Adam Scott is hoping that his Open Championship collapse can push him to do well at this week's USPGA Championship.

Adam Scott has admitted that he is delighted to be able to perform at another major tournament so soon after his final round collapse at the Open Championship.

The Australian bogeyed the last four holes at Royal Lytham last month to allow Ernie Els to lift the Claret Jug but the 31-year-old claims that he can take positives from such a disappointing defeat to succeed at this week's USPGA Championship.

"I played maybe the best golf of my career for the whole week really - unfortunately I didn't get a win," Scott said. "But even with the last four holes, taking it as a whole, I played spectacular golf for such a long period of time in a major championship.

"It's certainly great to have another crack at a major so soon after."

Scott plays with Hunter Mahan and Sergio Garcia in the first round at Kiawah Island.
