Looks like USA picked their 12 best putters and the Internationals picked Adam Scott

The USA team finally adjusted to the RMGC greens from Saturday afternoon and held many clutch putts in the singles on Sunday. To aim your comment squarely at Adam Scott is so unfair. His play , after a shaky start , was admirable. Granted, day 4 did not show as his best, but his overall performance was very creditable..

Sorry, don't agree. He misses too many putts that , at his level, should be dropping.

I would love to see Scotty go back to a short putter and work hard. He's done it before.

The putting by the yanks on Sunday was nothing short of superb..

He's ranked 21st on strokes gained, putting on the US tour this year... his best ranking in 15 years...
He dropped an Eagle putt from off the green.. He made some great putts...
RM was running 16 stimp... everyone had their fair share not dropping.. your speed had to be perfect out there.. olny exeception is Tiger, he putted the head off it out there....

Stimpmeter 16 ! Only on the ABSOLUTE downhill putts.

 

The greens were basically targeted at 13, with some running at 12. It would have been different had we experienced a strong Northerly and 30 + degrees.

This person knows exactly what they ran at if you get the drift...
The PGA tour regulation is 12 stimp..Every event apart from Augusta they run their own show...
If all the players are going on how fast they are they aren't running at 12 or 13 ...
Last event at Royal they said they ran at 14 and I know first hand to keep people happy they said 14 although they were at 16...
The greens were at 16... it will be kept quiet...

Our green keeper one year in a Pro-am ran the greens at 14 and the ball wasn't rolling out as far as RM was with same % slope of green etc..

He use to regularly on medals run at 13 the doesn't run out as much as RM did..

To add to that Toph as an example on the par 3 where JT was hitting to the back left slope in his practice round from the front left bunker... At 13 the ball never runs out to the front right pin... it Generally only runs to the centre of the green...

one could not play at the highest world level  Adam Scott plays at, and not be able to putt, it wouldnt happen.

 

like many club golfers you seem to have an un realistic expectation of pro golfers. they are all excellent putters.

 

BUT they dont hole every single putt.

 

what distance of putt do you say Adam Scott misses too many from. ?

 

remember from <10 ft= 3m Adam scott makes 92% 

ie he misses 8 /100 putts from that distance.

 

(the guy ranked 150th makes 87 % so misses 13 /100)

 

from 10ft to 15 ft = 3m to 4.5 m the best players in world are making 40 %

 

The only reason you say that Adam scott misses too many putts is because they are the only ones you see him miss (the 8/100) on the highlights package (called TV coverage).

 

If you followed lots of other players all way round, they too would miss putts.

what about the guy who misses cut how many do they miss, you dont know because you dont see them putt on TV
