Scott -- who clustered the nine birdies in a span of 11 holes -- equaled the lowest round of his PGA Tour career.
Beginning with a 12-foot putt at the par-4 second, Scott played 11 holes in 9-under. He bogeyed the par-3 16th.
"I don't know what I can compare it to, but definitely one of my best rounds," Scott said. "This is a tough golf course when you're just playing OK. But when you're playing good, it's possible."
