Adam Scott isn’t phased about using the short putter this week.
Adam Scott has chatted to the media about his switch to the more conventional short putter ahead of this week’s WGC Cadillac Championship at Trump Doral.
Scott said it was the long stint in Australia, waiting for his wife to give birth to their baby daughter where he arrived at the thought of making the switch more seriously.
“I’ve kind of enjoyed experimenting at home the last couple months because I’ve had so much time up my sleeve,” Scott said. “Thinking a little more objectively about it at the back end of last year, I thought because I do have to make an adjustment by the end of this year, if I’m going to spend some time doing it, I should try and start now and maybe find the best solution.”
Scott doesn’t seem too phased by the switch this week though as it’s a putting technique he used to use all the time.
“I’m thinking, you know, my stroke and everything feels as good as it ever has,” Scott said. “So just maybe big difference is probably on really long putts, the feel dishes of putting long ones. That seems to be coming pretty quickly, as well.”
It’s not the only thing that will be new to Adam Scott this week. In addition to now being a father, Scott also arrives to the PGA Tour with new caddie Mike Kerr who previously looped for Thorbjorn Olesen and worked with Scott at a couple of Australian tournaments.
“You know, throwing a baby in the mix is certainly going to make for an interesting year this year.”
Scott also elaborated on a few of the caddie job applications he received from people all around the world.
