ATLANTA -- Adam Scott was given an IV before teeing off Saturday morning at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola after arriving at East Lake under the weather.
Scott, who is in second four shots behind leader Henrik Stenson, felt "heavy" after Friday's round, according to his coach Brad Malone, and his condition worsened after dinner and throughout the night.
"He was tired last night and has a restless night of sleep," Malone said. "Hopefully it was just a quick bug."
When Scott arrived at the course for his 9 a.m. ET tee time, he had a fever and chills before doctors administered fluids for about an hour. The Aussie then hit a few balls on the range before teeing off.
"He feels considerably better than he did when he first got here," Malone added.
Scott is seeking his third win of the season and first FedExCup title.
