Great eighth

Adam Scott’s karma finally changed a bit on the eighth hole Saturday.
The Australian, who five-putted for a quadruple-bogey 7 on the 232-yard par-3 in the opening round and three-putted for a triple-bogey 6 Friday, hit his tee shot so far right in the rain Saturday that he actually hit a provisional ball.
Scott found his original shot just to the right of the cart path about 30 yards right of the green. He wedged to about 20 feet past the cup, then made a sharp left-to-right breaking, downhill putt for par.
After the ball trickled over the front lip of the cup, Scott looked down with a wry smile and shook his head.
