It's a girl! Adam Scott announces birth of 1st child

Former Masters champion Adam Scott is now a father.

Scott said his wife gave birth to a girl they named Bo Vera Scott. She was born Sunday in Australia.

The former No. 1 player in the world has not played this year. His last event was a tie for second in the Australian PGA Championship. Scott skipped the PGA Tour events in Hawaii with his wife in the final stages of pregnancy. He is expected to return at the Florida Swing, either the Honda Classic or Doral.

Scott was married last April after the Masters, though the word of his marriage didn't get out for three weeks.
