Adam Scott will cast his mind back to the 2011 Masters when he tees off on Sunday carrying a four-stroke lead into the final round of the British Open.
At Augusta National two years ago, the talented Australian came tantalisingly close to finally winning a major title.
In the final round, he stormed up the leaderboard and, after a birdie at 16, he held a two-stroke lead only to have Charl Schwartzel make history by birdieing the final four holes for victory.
It was a stunning defeat but one that the laid-back 32-year-old from Adelaide took in his stride and which he intends now to use to his advantage.
"That was really my only other time in contention late on a Sunday at a major," he said.
"And I'll have to draw from that experience; that's what you do. Just like I'll try and draw from other times I've had a lead going into the last round of a tournament."
Scott led after the first round at Royal Lytham after what he called an "awesome" course record-equalling score of 64 and he followed that up with a 67 on Friday to stand one behind American Brandt Snedeker.
Playing what he described as "stress-free golf", Scott parred his way through six holes in the third round and stepped up to the mark with two birdies just as Snedeker was faltering. By the turn he was four shots clear of the field.
Scott increased his lead to five with a birdie at the 11th, but allowed his only bogey of the day by missing a 10-footer at the 13th and then parred his way in to set up a winning position for Sunday.
A four-shot lead though was no sinecure for victory, he insisted.
"A four-shot lead doesn't seem to be very much this year on any golf tournament that I've watched," he said.
"That doesn't mean a lot. The good part is if I play a solid round of golf tomorrow, it will be very hard for the others to beat me, and that's all I'm thinking about."
If he does succeed, Scott will be the first Australian to hold aloft the Auld Claret Jug that goes to the winner of the British Open since Greg Norman did so at Royal St George's in 1993.
That prospect, and the thrill of finally lifting a major title, he said would help him find inspiration for Sunday's finale.
"It would be incredible, but I don't even really want to think about it right now," he added.
"I'm really excited for what tomorrow holds. No matter what the result, it's going to be an incredible experience for me.
"And I truly believe I can go out and play a great round of golf, no matter what the conditions. If I do that, then I think that makes it pretty hard for them to catch me."
Scott will play the final round in the company of 2010 US Open champion Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland.
