   schema:description "The US Masters: the most famous tournament of all. A global TV audience of 150 million, a string of legendary winners ... and a curse for Australian golfers. From Jim Ferrier blowing a huge lead in 1950 to Greg Norman's litany of disasters over decades, the Masters constantly turned its back on any Australian who looked likely to get close to the Holy Grail. The curse grew a life of its own. Norman spent 22 years trying to win the title he craved above all others, only to be stopped cold by nerves, rotten luck and bizarre twists of fate. As a boy, Adam Scott had cried while watching Greg Norman's implosions. He became world junior champion, and a protege of Norman. Respectful and dignified, he was one of the most popular players on the US and European tours. His swing was to die for, but his putting was a nightmare. He kept falling apart in big tournaments. In 2009, when Scott's career was in free - fall - when his world ranking plummeted and his personal life was on the skids - the only two men to show faith in him were Greg Norman and the Argentinian player, Angel Cabrera. Come 2013, Scott is in the thick of an impossibly dramatic Masters. Three Australians are among those fighting for the lead. Only Scott makes it to a sudden - death playoff - against Cabrera. As darkness closes in, he has what Norman never had: one putt to win the Masters. Featuring exclusive interviews with Adam Scott, Scott's father Phil, Greg Norman and every prominent Australian golfer from British Open champions Peter Thomson and Ian Baker - Finch to Masters runner - up Jack Newton, all of whom tried and failed at Augusta, Amen is the definitive story of how Adam Scott broke the biggest hex on Australian sport."@en ;
