When it comes to a choice of putter, short continues to be incredibly sweet for Adam Scott.

Since switching his broomstick for a more conventional blade as a result of the anchoring ban – the Scotty Cameron Rev 10 Xperimental Prototype – the Aussie has been on fire with two wins and a runner-up finish.

Two weeks ago, we hailed his putting from distance at the Northern Trust Open. But in the final round at Doral, it was his success from within 10ft, making 18/18 putts.

DJ carries M2 miles!

But it’s not just the driver the big-hitting American is blasting. He tweeted last week saying he’s getting some massively impressive figures from the M2 fairway wood.

Safe to say fellow TaylorMade staffer Justin Rose is also a huge fan!

Rory's running driver repairs

Before teeing off on the 18th hole at Doral on Saturday, Rory was spotted on camera tightening the head of his Nike Vapor Fly Pro driver.

The reason? He heard a rattle in the head and quickly went over to tighten it up, an adjustment that is permitted in the Rules of Golf because he wasn't changing the playing characteristic of the club. Was Rory affected by this delay? Certainly not, as he blitzed his ball straight down the middle of the fairway.

Delivery for DeLaet

How cool is this! In October last year, PGA Tour player Graham DeLaet became a father to twins and as a lovely keepsake, Titleist sent him these Vokey wedges with all the important details.

So, if ever the argument comes up between Roscoe and Lyla as to who is the older sibling, Dad's answer: "Look at your wedges!"

And finally...

Who tells Phil Mickelson these are a good look? Here's the five-time major winner's choice of footwear on both Saturday and Sunday at Doral, as he recorded his third top five so far in 2016.
