With the British Open in full swing at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Adam Scott has earned himself an unusual accolade?–?the World Number 1 golfer has been voted the sexiest player in the tournament.

In the poll completed by 4?866 female members of the infidelity website, Victoria Milan, the Australian outclassed Tiger Woods, who is now lying second in the sexy stakes.

Last year, the controversial American came in first as the sexiest player, but after missing two majors this year?–?the Masters Tournament and the US Open due to back surgery?–?female attention has cooled off, according to the poll.

Founder and chief executive officer of the website, Sigurd Vedal, said golf is almost a tantric game.

“Tension builds slowly, anticipation and excitement increase and by the time the 19th hole is reached, the pleasure people are taking in the game is palpable.

“It makes sense that golf is a game that cheating men and women associate with,” said Vedal.
