The 42-year-old Australian - who is back working with Tiger Woods' legendary caddie in 2023 - reaffirmed his commitment to the PGA Tour by joining the Players Advisory Council [PAC].
When speaking to the media about his new role, Scott said he was more interested in the direction of the tour than the ongoing legal battles.
Scott said of his decision to join the 16-player PAC:
Scott played in the PGA Tour's second event of 2023 at the Sony Open.
Si Woo Kim captured his fourth victory and sealed the deal with a 28-foot chip in for birdie.

In the NBC broadcast, they discussed Scott's new role.
Commentator Dan Hicks talked up Scott's new position but former Ryder Cup skipper Paul Azinger was having absolutely none of it.
Azinger, who won 12 PGA Tour events in his career and captained the U.S. to Ryder Cup victory in 2008 at Valhalla, described the PAC as a "colossal waste of time".
And he served on the PAC for 13 years!

It's fair to say Hicks didn't expect Azinger to go down that path!
Does Azinger have a point?
It has to be said that Azinger might well have a point considering the biggest changes we have seen on the PGA Tour in recent memory were driven by a private meeting between the players during last year's FedEx Cup playoffs.
Woods, McIlroy and the top talent on the Tour met and agreed that in response to LIV the fields needed to be stronger.
Wholesale changes were made elsewhere and PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan claimed that while he knew what was being discussed, he had not input into the meeting.
