Such was his performance earlier in the week however that Scott would only finish 52nd and still needs to play well at this week’s Memorial Tournament or the following week in Memphis, if necessary, to be inside the top 60 in the world rankings by June 11 and make the US Open field.
The former World No. 1 has slipped from 61st to 65th following the release of the revised rankings today.
Scott began his final round with back-to-back birdies before adding another at the fifth and made the turn in 3 under 32.
The 2014 champion looked as though he could go much deeper than 64 when he reeled off three consecutive birdies from the 11th to the 13th before ending his round with five straight pars.
Scott and John Senden were the only two Australians to make the cut at the Colonial Country Club; Senden finished last of those who did make it to the weekend.
The tournament was won by Justin Rose who controlled the tournament from the halfway make and went on to win by three over Brook Koepka and by four over Emiliano Grillo.
