Did you take a break from NCAA basketball to play or watch golf this weekend? After Saturday's round at Bay Hill, we were thinking that Adam Scott had weathered his "bad round" of the week and would surely play better and win on Sunday. We were wrong.
The conventional wisdom about anchored putters is that they are better at shorter putts than traditional putters. That did not seem to be the case for Adam Scott Sunday. One stroke back with his ball laying two on the 16th green, Scott three-putted from about 15 feet for a par. On the 17th he missed a shortish par putt. Sunday on the PGA TOUR again looked like the players were just trying not to throw up on themselves rather than win. While the suspense level remains high for viewers, we'd rather see players make birdies to win than bogeys to lose.
