During the brief rain delay in Friday afternoon’s US Open tennis tournament coverage, I switched over and watched a bit of the Deutsche Bank golf tournament from Boston.
They were dealing with some weather issues of their own, and while the commentators discussed past winners, the name “Adam Scott”, the 2003 champion, jumped out at me.
Adam Scott…a professional golf player? Adam Scott doesn’t play golf. Adam Scott is an actor. I knew him first as Henry in the exceptional Starz cater waiter comedy “Party Down,” but he made the leap to the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation” last season.
(Good decision on his part, too, because Starz canceled the comedy, the bums.)
So, I checked Wikipedia — ’cause if it’s there, it’s gospel — and sure enough, Adam Scott is a golfer from Australia. It’s funny, though — when you look at the promotional pics of Adam Scott the golfer and Adam Scott the actor, it’s not immediately obvious which is which (unless you already know).
Take a look yourself.
See what I mean?
If you don’t know, there are some clues. Adam Scott the golfer [on the left] has a killer tan and a bit more muscle definition — he works outside, so it stands to reason. (No offense intended, Adam Scott the actor. Chances are, you are much, much funnier.)
An interesting side note — Adam Scott the golfer is no stranger to the movie biz, either; he dated actor Kate Hudson back in the day.
Man — don’t you love sports??
