Adam Scott admits he gets bored watching golf on television.

And Australia's No.1 golfer agrees something needs to be done to improve ratings figures which have the sport's broadcasters worried.

"I know where they're coming from, I'm bored watching golf on television, no question about it," Scott said on the eve of the Australian Masters at Huntingdale.

Maybe it's because they're without a one-day version of the game. A few years ago I remember there was a thing called 'Speed golf' where you pretty much use one club that can act as both a long club and a putter and you get bonus points for finishing the hole as fast as you can and with the least strokes.

More likely it got airplay on Nine because the Seven Network and Fox Sports have most of the TV rights.
