Residence: Reno, Nevada
Scott was born in Sacramento, California and graduated from UCLA, graduating with a major in History. Upon graduating though Scott gave the game up for four years to help his father with his clothing business. His return to golf was sparked by a visit to the Senior Gold Rush Tournament in 1991.
In 1995 it was only a 3rd placed finish at the Las Vegas Invitational at the end of the season that saved him from going back to Q-School. Form this moment Scott has not looked back. In 1996 he became the third consecutive first-time winner on tour - following Tim Herron and Paul Goydos in the previous weeks. The following year he captured his second Tour title at the 1997 Bell South Classic. He repeated this win in 2001 to secure his third and most recent PGA Tour victory.
In 2006 Scott had one of his worst seasons on Tour. He did not so enough to retain his card and as a result only played 1 event the following season. Scott was not long out of the game though as he returned to the PGA Tour in 2008.
His best finish in 2008 was a second place finish at the Wyndham Championship. This helped him to a 91st place finish on the Money List and a card for the 2009 season. After 12 events of the 2009 season Scott is sitting outside the top-125 on the PGA Tour Money List.

Scott McCarron Tournament History
2008 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic
17-20 January - Bob Hope Chrysler Classic - Bermuda Dunes, Silver Rock, Nicklaus Private at PGA West, Palmer Private at PGA West and Palm Springs, California. 27-year-old Trahan, who had won just once before, charged from 4 shots back Sunday to overtake Justin Leonard and win the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. Trahan shot a sparkling 7-under 65 to beat Leonard by 3 strokes. The younger player said a 4-shot deficit looked imposing heading into the final round of the 5-day tournament but came through to prevail in the end.
In Scott McCarron's bag...Scott did not get his season off to the best start. Despite an opening round of 68 Scott failed to take advantage of the good scoring conditions over the rest of the week. Round of 74, 70 and 69 followed and a 73 in the final round put the finish on a disappointing week for the American. He eventually ended up at -6 and in a tie for 70th place. With the zoom here we can see the fine detail on the back of Scott R7 irons that indicate they are the TP model and not the normal R7 steel’s from TaylorMade. We can also clearly see that Scott was using a TaylorMade Burner TP tour driver. The same head cover that belongs to his TaylorMade Burner TP fairway woods is hiding just behind his driver. Also on the zoom we can get in close on the back of his wedge and make out that it is a Cleveland Tour Action. However Scott has some lead tape over the back to add weight so the exact details are covered. The broom-handled putter that is sticking out the top is quoted in various places as a TaylorMade Rossa Monza Spider but the head cover that we can see does not match this - so would not like to confirm or deny what you may read elsewhere.fisher
