In an interview with Eurosport during this week's Australian PGA Championship, Scott, now 42, has revealed he will be basing himself primarily in the United States next year in a bid to "compete seriously" on the PGA Tour.
Scott told Eurosport:
Scott has won 14 times on the PGA Tour through the years, with his last victory coming at the 2020 Genesis Invitational hosted by Tiger Woods.
He ranks fifth in the all-time money list earnings on the PGA Tour with just under $60 million.
The Australian, who won the 2013 Masters, is also still intent on joining golf's elite and completing the career Grand Slam with three more victories at The Open, US Open and US PGA Championship.
Scott believes there has never been a better time for golfers to make a living on the PGA Tour, especially following the recent changes that have been made to the circuit.
Scott, who has been heavily linked with a move to join Cameron Smith's all-Australian LIV Golf team in 2023, recently earned a $3 million bonus for finishing 17th in the PGA Tour Player Impact Program (PIP).
Scott is competing in the Australian PGA Championship this week and he has his former caddie Steve Williams once again back on his bag.
Williams of course was also on the bag for Woods for many years back in the day.
Australia's Jason Scrivener holds a narrow one-shot lead over Smith heading into the weekend.
Scott is six shots off the pace in tied 17th.
