Adam is a former world number one and Masters winner. A win at the 2019 Australian PGA saw him end a period of over three years without a win and it was no surprise to see him go on and win the Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour early in 2020.
Adam is on record as stating he struggled to find the right balance on the course and off the course with the arrival of his second child in August 2017. A combination of finding this balance and reaching the milestone age of 40 has seen his play improve and moved him back inside the world top 20 at the end of 2020.
Adam took on a very light schedule for 2020 as a result of Covid-19 and it's likely he will come out hungry to win again in 2021.
Adam turned 40 in July 2020.

Adam won the Australian PGA. Began the final round with a two stroke lead and fired a solid 69 to win by two shots.
Was six shots back going into the final round of The Memorial, shot a 68 to lose out by two.
Adam is a very capable front runner and as such, his Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at 4 stars.
Goes best when fresh
Six of Adam's last nine wins have come after at least a week off. He's a player who goes well when he's fresh.
Major and WGC Analysis
Adam won the Masters in 2013 and also has a runner up finish to his name in 2011. Made all three cuts in 2020 with 22nd at PGA his best finish.
It wouldn't be a surprise to see Adam win another Major before his career is over. His schedule is geared towards the big events and he has multiple top 20 finishes in each of the four Majors.
Two time winner in 2011 and 2016. Only start in 2020 was 26th in Mexico. Scott has another WGC in him soon.
Adam's playoff record appears weak at first glance but his losses were mostly early in his career or in Australia. Bizarrely, he has won every playoff he has been involved in on the PGA Tour but lost every playoff he has been involved in on the PGA Tour of Australia.
