Golf Australia Express : GA Express 278
own words before the beginning of the Australian PGA suggested a man seemingly in search of a magical cure. “I haven’t done that much work with it but it feels pretty good out there,” Scott said of the long putter, which lasted two rounds as he missed the cut. Scott has returned to the short putter in 2018 and, although still struggling for consistency on the greens, his tee-to-green game has returned to close to its outstanding best. In fact, Scott now ranks first in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green on the PGA Tour and is finding more than 70 percent of greens in regulation. With his long game back, and his scrambling also improving, Scott’s putting will again be the focus for the armchair critics, and undoubtedly Scott himself, as he tees it up this week before heading to Augusta, where his mind is well and truly focused. “I want to peak that week, of course,” he said of The Masters after his impressive Saturday at the Valspar. I feel I’ve been progressing nicely with the stroke even though I haven’t necessarily showed that in stats or making a lot of putts.” The statistics Scott alluded to do not make for good reading. He is ranked 192nd or higher in six key putting categories and the worst player on Tour in three-putt avoidance.
