Scott won his main Masters title in 2013 after a dramatic playoff win over Angel Cabrera.
The 38-year-old struggled for form in 2018 but is coming into the tournament in good nick after good finishes at the Torrey Pines and the Players Championship.
“It’s been a nice stretch of preparation; I’ve had some rest and worked plenty on my game since the Players,” Scott said.
“I did a trip up here for a couple days last week and it definitely got me excited for Masters.”
Federer and Scott have become close as both wear Uniqlo clothing in their respective sports.
On Instagram, Federer posted a picture of the pair from a recent interview.
And in the caption, the Swiss star wrote: “Good luck @adamscottofficial at the Masters this week! I will be watching.”
Scott teed off at 15:09 (GMT) with Hideki Matsuyama and Kyle Stanley in the first round.
