Who will bag Scott?

(Photo borrowed from the Associated Press via ESPN)

Adam Scott is still logo-less these days, continuing to sport Burberry duds without an apparel deal. It consistently amazes me how someone hasn't come to the table with an attractive offer for the Aussie who is surely one of the most sought after billboards on Tour. (Even with his lackluster play as of late) 
Apparel heads at the PGA Show in January almost had a conniption when the buzz hit that Scott may be Mont Blanc'ing with Ashworth, surely a conflict of interest as Ashworth is owned by Taylormade/Adidas and Scott is a Titleist/Footjoy man. (Acushnet) 
Titleist, in early April, joined forces with high-end clothing provider Peter Millar, with Titleist pros like Chuckie Hoffman now wearing Millar gear adorned with FJ, PM and Titleist logos. But Scott? No dice. He's been dancing in Ryan Moore land for the past few months. We find it hard to believe that no one wants a piece of the guy who just months ago was on the pages of US Weekly strolling with Kate Hudson. Is Adam's asking price too high to justify his recent play? Should that even matter? We at the KC can't be sure, but you can bet we will find out.

I went over thirty years without a clothing deal. Or an equipment deal, a ball deal and a book deal.

For some reason, nobody wanted to deal with me.

As a matter of fact, I paid them for me to use their stuff.

When Scott plays a tourney, notice how many females follow him, no matter how he's playing.

Had he a clothing line, I'd bet even the women would buy it.

For whom the belles strolled, indeed.

This belle would be happy to stroll in Mr. Scott's gallery.

I always thought he was on with Burberry. Shame on them for not jumping on board.

Adam Scott bridges the gap between non-golfers and golfers. Gals love him and he's got an incredible Website.

Think I need a rainy day fix...http://www.adamscott.com.au/ here I come!
