Chip off his 'ole mentors block?

Surely it's a mental thing. He has the physical and technical skill.

 

The 'postmortem' would surely be focused on this thought processes and a sports psychology approach more so than skills and technique?

Not much a player can do when the nerves in the hands get jumpy. I once asked Brett Rumford why he went to the anchoring style after watching him putt like a genius with the short putter. He said his hands got jumpy on pressure putts which didn't happen with the anchored putter. Now that anchoring is no longer part of putting, control of the nerves in the hands are once again an issue for the unfortunate who suffer with nerves on the greens.

Adam Scott is too good a player not to win big again. Every player, at all levels, have streaks with the short (read long) stick and his turn will come.

He is a good enough ball striker that when he has a hot week with putter he can win anything.

 

I think a lot of people are way too quick to criticise.  Even if he never wins again (and its too early to say that) he has had an outstanding career.  He has over 30 wins worldwide, won a major and contended at least once in all the other majors.  Plenty of players never win a tour event let alone a major.

There are many 1 major wonders, I hope he is not one of them. The major he did win he can thank his caddie, he under read the playoff winning putt. 

 

He lacks confidence putting it would seem which is fair enough because he has an inconsistent stroke from short range when he gets tense and he also is a poor reader of greens thus he is a disciple of aimpoint.

 

If he truly believes his quote below I am not sure he will win another major.

 

"When I stand over a six-footer I have a game plan. I know where the putt needs to go and that gives me great confidence. It also means the pressure is less on the long putts because anything inside six feet fells like it's in my comfort area."

Adam Scott is an enigma with the putter.
Awful from short range under 4 foot but pretty good from 10-20 feet.
Gotta be mental.
Probably should have finished top 3 at all of this years majors.
His putting during the third round of the Masters cost him at least 5 strokes, maybe dropped a total of 7 including a couple of misses late in round 2.
However, putted awesome during final round at Memorial, looked like holing everything from 10-20 feet

Yeah, hang on ...

 

Surely the sprayed tee shot on 13, resulting in a double bogey was really the issue / problem?

 

He'd have been struggling after that on those later putts...

 

But.

 

If he had only made par on the 13th, pressure off, and may have cruised to victory.

 

So, why the errant tee shot on 13?

It happens even with the best ball strikers. Only takes a minor swing flaw with elite players to hit a ball 50+ yards off line. There were two chances that Scott could have won it - none and Buckley's.

Hawkers, I'm assuming we draw the blinds today, its AS vs Zach Johnston, unfortunately Zach wins. That's a tragedy.

Not really that bad then is he?

 

Missing fairways and not getting close to the pin in the first place, might be tad more of the problem then?
