While Adam Scott thrilled golf fans on Sunday with his dramatic Masters playoff win over Angel Cabrera, the Aussie also picked up legions of fans with his broad smile, thick locks and muscled arms, People reports.

Here are five fun facts about the world's newest fairway star -- who is also the first Australian to win the tournament.

1. He's single!

At 32, Scott, a lanky 6-foot, 180-pound native of Adelaide, Australia, has never been married.

2. ... But he has a glamorous past.

According to the Daily Mail, he's dated two celebrities: Kate Hudson, in 2009, and the tennis star Ana Ivanovic, from whom he split in 2011.

3. He studied in the States.

Scott attended college at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While enrolled, he was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity but golfed for just one semester, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

4. His peers adore him.

Not only did Scott receive a flurry of positive tweets from his fellow professional golfers, including fellow Aussie Greg Norman, whom Scott considers a mentor, but Keith Urban and One Direction's Niall Horan also offered praise. "Adam Scott!!! You are the man! Congrats, mate," tweeted Urban. "Yeaaaahhhh Adam Scott ya legend! Doin' it for the Aussies!" Horan tweeted.

5. He's already gone viral.

His righteously infectious high-fives with his New Zealand-born caddy, Steve Williams -- who used to work for Tiger Woods -- have gone viral.

Faith Hill has announced that she will no longer be heard singing the theme for NBC's "Sunday Night Football," "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night," before each game, according to E! News.

"Amazing 2 have been part of SNF -- an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open," she tweeted on Monday, adding: "Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all you guys at SNF -- I'll be watching!!!"

No word yet on who will be replacing Hill.

nMovie mogul Harvey Weinstein now has an ally at home.

The Weinstein Co. chairman and his wife, designer Georgina Chapman, welcomed a son on Thursday in New York City, People confirms.

The couple are already parents to daughter India Pearl, 2. Weinstein, 61, also has three daughters -- Emma, Lily and Ruth -- from his previous marriage.

Chapman, 37, and Weinstein wed on Dec. 15, 2007, at his Connecticut home.

After Kat Von D and Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, became engaged in December, they couldn't wait to start planning their wedding.

On Aug. 10, the couple will marry in an "underwater-themed" ceremony before 200 friends and family in Los Angeles, the tattoo artist tells People.

Drawing from their mutual love for H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Call of Cthulhu," about a character that is half-man, half-octopus, Von D assures People that she and the electronic musician's ceremony will be "the furthest thing from traditional."

The Italian-born director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Riccardo Muti, has attended a concert in a jail performed by a group of the orchestra's musicians as well as inmates, the AP reports.

It happened Sunday at Chicago's Juvenile Temporary Detention Center. The mostly teenage inmates are awaiting trial, many on serious charges.

It's part of an outreach program championed by Muti.

After the concert, he told the inmates the concert was "a wonderful beginning." He added, "You will join society with the sense of harmony you learned here."

The inmates participated in a weeklong musical workshop that culminated with the concert.

One piece began with a classical bass playing Bach's Cello Suite in C major. The teens then joined in rapping. Some of their parents cried as they listened in the audience.
