post #253 of 329

Congratz to Matt..!!!  Umm wasn't he on the Big Break ???  :-D

post #254 of 329

Might be wrong but I love seeing Adam Scott falter, especially when it's that long thing he calls a putter that fails him.

 

From everything I've heard, he seems like a really good guy but I just can't root for him while he uses that long thing.

To be fair, you may recall, Adam wasn't feeling all that great earlier in the week, then he said he felt better Sat. well that ugly feeling may have come back to haunt him today. I haven't watched the last round, so he may have said that he wasn't 100%.. There's only a couple of guys I don't want to win, but I never like to see a good player falter. Just my 3 cents.

I liked Scott more before Williams was his caddy.  I know the greens were tough today but I think the long putters work against guys on the shorter putts.  Bradley missed a few too, which might have cost him the tournament.

Don't really care about being fair, to be honest.

 

You said that there's only a couple of guys that you don't want to win.  Me, too.  One of those guys for me is Adam Scott and if it's because he falters, then so be it.

 

I also find it super annoying how the announcers gush over him like he's the best thing that has ever happened to the game.

I know I was annoyed at the announcers too! They couldn't stop talking about he blew that 8 stroke lead. They didn't even show Matt Every when he went up by 3 shots. They kept showing the long putter group Bradly & Scott. They both played horrible today, they were missing short putts.

Yeah.... 26 professional wins, including a Masters.....

Damn, if he could only get it done.

Glad for Every today though!

10, including the Masters. 9 European Tour wins.....at age 33. Not too shabby.....

Good for Every. I really liked his attitude and demeanor today. Seems like this year of newbies winning is just going to continue and continue. Wonder if the majors will also be random wins. Even the younger top players aren't really winning this year. Just an odd year.

Not at all I was just curious. Hes solid I wonder how he will do without being able to anchor the putter?

That, my friend, is a damn good question!

Not quite sure what you're trying to suggest with your post.  It's obvious that Adam Scott is talented, anyone that denies that is just fooling themselves because you don't get to #2 in the world without talent.  

 

That being said, I just have never been a fan of national announcers gushing over players, and it's not just in golf.  Didn't like it when they would do it with Michael Jordan in basketball and don't like it when they do it with Sidney Crosby in the hockey and don't get me started with some of the announcers of NFL games.  In sports where you have a home media market, it's a little more understandable because 95% of people watching are rooting for the home media market team, but in national telecasts, it annoys me to no end.

He can't be much worst without a long putter than with one. I wouldn't be surprised if he switched to a short putter if he putts poorly in the Master's. He won the Player's in 2004 using a short stick.

I heard them saying this morning that he intends to still use the long putter but hold it away from his chest. We had a discussion here on TST one day about that technique but I'm unconvinced that it's as reliable a technique as just going back to a conventional putter.

Then again it may work great. Who knows? a2_wink.gif

After today, he might change his mind.

And, welcome to the wonderful world of golf, anything can and will happen....:-D 

 

BTW, RFK, I agree 100% with you re: announcers gushing over players from all sports.
