Mouldy is the answer

You're welcome

I've done more research than the average coach and I'm cheaper than Aimpoint.

With the talent playing these days, a yippy putter is lucky to keep his card let alone win majors. It will be interesting to see what AS comes up with. I'm wondering if he is trialling the broomstick without anchoring it to the body. Has anybody noticed if his left hand is anchored?

Beg to differ, Bernhard Langer has had a pretty decent career and still kills them on the senior tour.

 

He has had the yips on a number of occasions and overcome them using a short putter at one stage.

 

Scott if he is smart will go and see Baddley, a pro who would hardly make a living if he was not a great putter.

 

Aimpoint is fish slapping imo, trying to apply science to an art!

The trouble with Scott is once he loses confidence in the 'scoring' stick it will effect his overall game. Maybe he can turn it around quickly but you have got to say that he is heading into a strong head wind at present !

What's wrong with being a one major wonder? Pretty sure most touring pros would give both nuts and their first born to have a Masters on their win list. Sure, maybe he's unlikely to be remembered among the greats of the game, but no shame in that.

And to answer the OP - wouldn't put any coin on it, but hope he proves me wrong.

Breaking; Adam Scott will not represent his country at golf in the Olympics, however he does plan to do pole vault with his putter. Lovely.

Drive for show and putt for dough, AS has never been a great putter IMHO. As an amateur if your a half decent putter and hit greens in reg or close enough to green enough to chip or putt onto green ( weeti springs to mind), you should two putt maximum.

I put him up there with Michael Campbell. He should start featuring on the euro tour frequently come 2017/2018 and retire by 46.

Where's the Tall Poppy Syndrome? No one is trying to bring him down, just stating the obvious - that if he can't fix his putting, then it's highly likely the Masters will be his one and only major. For such a talented ball striker, it's a shame he can't get the job done on the greens.

Actually I took the Michael Campbell comparison way to far.

He could be amazing but he just annoys me so much, it's like he plays defensive golf when he has a semi good score and is really boring to watch 2 iron/ 6 iron to 25 feet 2 putt x 10. He is probably one of the best ball strikers in the game but his wedges and putting let him down. I think last week he was -6 in strokes gained putting on final round last week and -4 through the other 3 rounds combined. That's 10 shots over the week which could have been the win.

And he has done that a few times.
Someone needs to pull him up and say look Adam your flaming awesome you just need to be aggressive and have some confidence in your putting.

Tee to green he is up there with the best, putting he is down there with the worst, NOW. Aggressive play is all well and good but when your putting is poor you become cautious not to miss greens because you have no confidence saving pars. 

 

Confidence in putting comes from putting well, he has not putted well of late so it becomes hard to gain confidence.
