"We just wanted it to be a secret for the day, and then we haven't told anyone to keep it a secret since," he said. "But I think people didn't want to do the wrong thing by me. So I've got them right where I want them."

He has not played since the Masters, keeping to the same schedule as last year. When he showed up at The Players Championship, he was not wearing a ring.

"We have rings, but I've never played with one, so I wasn't going to start this week," Scott said. "We'll see if it makes it to the course or not."

Scott's bride did not travel to a lot of golf tournaments when they first were dating more than a decade ago, and he said that probably wouldn't change. Several in the crowd called out congratulations to him throughout the third round.

The golf wasn't bad, either.

Scott got off to a rough start Saturday and finished strong for a 69. He was 3-under par, still with an outside chance at finishing high enough to replace Tiger Woods at No. 1 in the world ranking next week.

He said there wasn't a proposal — it was more like a conversation. As for a honeymoon? They live part of the year in a place most couples go for their honeymoon.

"We figured we didn't need a honeymoon — our life is pretty much like a honeymoon all the time," he said. "So there were no real plans for any of that. We'll just keep on going."
