PARSIPPANY, N.J. and PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., June 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGA TOUR and Avis Car Rental announced today that Adam Scott has been voted the May PGA TOUR Player of the Month presented by Avis. As the official rental car company of the PGA TOUR, Avis will make a $50,000 contribution to the Adam Scott Foundation.

In a fan decision on PGATOUR.COM, Scott outpolled Martin Kaymer, Brendan Todd and J.B. Holmes. The four were nominated by a panel of national media for their performances during the month of May.

Scott, who moved to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking the week of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in May, went on to win the Crowne Plaza event in a playoff over Jason Dufner. Scott's 11 th career PGA TOUR title completed the "Texas Slam" for the Australian, becoming the first player to win all four PGA TOUR events conducted in the Lone Star State – the Valero Texas Open, Shell Houston Open, HP Byron Nelson Championship and the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

This is the second time Scott has been named PGA TOUR Player of the Month since Avis teamed up with the PGA TOUR to enhance the "Player of the Month" award program in 2012. He was also named PGA TOUR Player of the Month in April 2013 following his Masters Tournament victory.

"Adam Scott's dedication, performance and achievement on the golf course in May is a great example of what the PGA TOUR Player of the Month award is all about," said Jeannine Haas, chief marketing officer, North America, Avis Budget Group. "We're delighted that fans agree. We are honored to once again donate $50,000 on his behalf."

The Adam Scott Foundation was founded in Australia in 2005 and expanded to Asia in 2008. The Foundation is dedicated to providing support for causes that affect youth in Australia and Asia and to best allow for positive change. The Foundation raises funds through partnerships and donations from corporate supporters and individuals with 100 percent of donations assisting planned projects.
