Adam Scott's 10-under round at Bay Hill last Thursday marked the 149th time a 62 or better has been shot in the first round of a PGA Tour event. Yet only 30 times did that player go on to victory. Scott also joins a short list of players who since 1970 have failed to win after building at least a six-shot lead through 36 holes.
