Scott laments putting woes
Adam Scott is coming off the back of a difficult season on the greens but there is light at the end of tunnel.
With the impending ban on long putters coming into effect in January 2016, Scott has been forced to make change.
While he has been showing some promise with the short putter, the world number 10 has tended to use his favoured 'broomstick' in the bigger events, so it was all the more frustrating when balls weren't dropping in as he was used to.
"I putted poorly this year with the long putter which made everything quite frustrating when you do putt poorly for a long period of time like the whole year, makes the game very difficult," the 35-year-old told the PGA Tour website.
"Obviously when you know you're going to hole a few putts you can loosen up a bit and your chips are just that little bit better and your shots into the greens, you're not worried about just hitting a green, you can get a little more aggressive."
Nevertheless, since missing the cut at The Barcalys, Scott has enjoyed a good run of form with four top ten finishes, including two runner-ups.
He also impressed in the opening round of the Hero World Challenge in Albany on Thursday, where his five-under 67 saw him finish fourth on the leaderbaord.
"I'm feeling good about things at the moment," added Scott.
"I want to kind of keep some good momentum going and obviously get a result and get the confidence up high for the major season starting in April."
