Adam Scott is heading toward the Masters in red-hot form after claiming a second successive victory, taking out the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship in Miami.

The win will lift Scott from No.9 to No.6 in the world rankings as he prepares to seek a second Masters green jacket at Augusta National next month.

Scott overcame a third round quadruple bogey en route to winning the US PGA Tour’s Honda Classic a week ago and he was able to salute again on Sunday despite hitting two balls into the water and a shank out of a bunker during his final round.

World No.2 Jason Day finished even par for the week and tied 23rd.

Marc Leishman finished two over while fellow Australians Nathan Holman, Marcus Fraser, Jordan Zunic, Scott Hend and Steven Bowditch all finished way off the pace.
