Adam Scott better get himself to a flower shop, because his girlfriend Marie Kojzar just saved him from the beautiful mess that is "The Bachelor."
CBS Sports is proud to report the Australian who just won the Masters is not single at the moment. In a video interview, he is asked straight out about his eligibility, and he says in no uncertain terms that he is "not single at all."
He's apparently back in his on-again-off-again relationship with Marie Kojzar ("Marie" as he calls her). Their relationship was outlined in this 2008 Sports Illustrated article.
He had previously dated tennis player Ana Ivanovic and it was rumored that he was being pursued quite heavily by the producers of The Bachelor.
Scott spoke a little more candidly about his relationship in a 2007 interview posted on Golf.com. While the report is dated, you get a sense of the relationship playing out behind the scenes.
At the time of the interview, Scott mentions he and Kojzar had been dating for four years, something he considered a record for himself.
Kojzar, at least at the time, was an interior designer who is a year younger than the 32-year-old golf star.
Now if you are wondering where all this "Bachelor" guff comes from, you can thanks the show's producer.
As Scott celebrated his playoff win against Angel Cabrera at Augusta, Robert Mills had himself a fantastic idea.

So......Adam Scott as the next #Bachelor?? What say you, #Bachelornation?4/14/2013, 11:27:46 PM
That lone tweet caused an internet clamor for Scott, with fans of the show demanding the new sports heartthrob feature in an upcoming season.
It was enough for most fans to cringe in the same way we might when Scott reaches for his long putter.
Thankfully, Scott averts pop culture disaster and can now concentrate on golf. And if our math is correct, it's about time he put a ring on a certain someone's finger.
Hit me up on Twitter for more sexy swag.
