ADAM SCOTT

Adam Scott has a whole load of long putters that he doesn’t use anymore – so what did he do with one of them? Send it to the man responsible for the anchoring ban!


Peter Dawson retired as chief executive of the R&A last year and, having enforced the ban, which came into effect on January 1, he received a gift from the Aussie and seemed to see the funny side.

“I actually sent one to Peter Dawson for his retirement,” Scott said at the Honda Classic. “He said he greatly appreciated the gesture and that he’d put it with all the other obsolete clubs.”



Scott used a long putter when he captured his maiden major triumph at the 2013 Masters and, while many thought the Aussie would struggle to adapt with the rule change, his putting was exceptional at last week’s Northern Trust Open.

He finished runner-up at Riviera, one shot behind Bubba Watson, and one-putted from more than 15ft on each of the first four holes in his final round with the video (above), showing his birdie on the third.
