Adam Scott is hopeful of getting back on track at the Wyndham Championship this week after an "average" showing at the US PGA Championship.

The 11-time PGA Tour winner was tied for fourth at the U.S. Open following a blistering 64 finish and was then joint-10th at The Open - but his two outings since has seen him fail to contend.

He tied for 45th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, before missing the cut at the US PGA.

The Australian said he was unconcerned his form was not turning into wins, saying it is a matter of time before he converts - starting in Greensboro this week.

Scott is already assured of his spot in the first week of the FedEx Cup play-offs, which starts with The Barclays on August 27, but is eager to get back to his best before then.

"I haven't played a lot of golf this summer and disappointing the last couple of weeks for me," Scott told a news conference in North Carolina.

"Result-wise, however, I feel my game is good and it's a good time for me to play and, like I said, if I can just get a little bit of momentum heading into the play-offs events that puts me in good stead to play the next few weeks and then you never know."

Scott went 76-75 to miss the cut by five strokes at Whistling Straits, and said: "It was just all of it average to be honest.

"There was nothing great. My short game didn't pick up when the shots weren't good and vice versa.

"So, you know, it just needs to be a little sharper. You get that playing a little bit more.

"I feel like I'm kind of getting into a nice rhythm this week which is unfortunate because I always try to peak for the majors and last week I didn't so it's always a work in progress.

"Hopefully I find it here."

Scott said he did not have a break following the US PGA.

"I've been straight back into it," he added.

"Like I said, just feeling like I'm getting into that right rhythm of where everything should be and I've been working on it.

"I like the way I'm coming in here. Not of results, but of the way my game is shaping up."
