"Adam Scott is the best player under 30 in the world by
far," Harmon said of his protege. "You may get an argument for
Luke Donald or Sergio Garcia but I just think Adam Scott is
above them. He's a truly great talent.
"He is the only one who can challenge Tiger Woods in the
next four or five years. He's the only one I see of the young
players with all the things it takes to get close to Tiger
Woods," Harmon told Sky Television's Golf Night program.
Last month, Scott, ranked No. 5 in the world, fired a record final round of 11-under-par 61 to romp to a
three-shot victory in the European Tour's Qatar Masters.
Harmon, who also coaches world No. 2 Phil Mickelson,
said the 27-year-old from Adelaide was hungry to take on Woods.
"[Scott] is long off the tee, he's a good driver, he's
worked on his putting and is putting consistently now, his wedge
play has got a lot better and I think he wants it more," said
"He wants to be the guy that challenges Tiger Woods."
