GEAR SHORTS

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.

Was Rory affected by this delay? Certainly not, as he blitzed his ball straight down the middle of the fairway.
