    Greg Norman is tipping Adam Scott to take over as golf’s world No.1 in the near future.

    Norman was elated to watch world No.2 Scott complete a successful Australian Masters title defence on Sunday hard on the heels of his Australian PGA Championship triumph and has no doubt he’ll take over the No.1 spot held by Tiger Woods soon.

    “Loved coming home to see my friend Adam Scott cleaning up the #australia golf season. So happy for and proud of him. #1 on the near horizon,” wrote Norman on Twitter.

    The PGA of Australia says that if Scott continues his winning ways at this week’s World Cup at Royal Melbourne and next week’s Australian Open at Royal Sydney, he could go into 2014 with less than one point separating him from the once-untouchable Woods in the world rankings.

    Before his Australian Masters win, he was three points adrift, with Woods on 12.26 and Scott on 9.25.

    Scott is bidding to become the 17th player to hold the No.1 spot since the rankings were started in 1986 and the only Australian to do so other than Norman, who had the second longest total reign of 335 weeks at the top – behind Woods’ 657 weeks.
