Since nobody else seems to want to talk about anything other than the guy who finished DFL of those who made the cut, allow me to be the one to congratulate Adam Scott on a solid win!
Rory had a good tournament too, until the wheels fell off halfway through the front 9 on Sunday.
@ncates00, I think all of your points are good but then why would you not apply the same thought process to distance as well? You have elevated, rightfully so, the skill aspect of golf many times so a bit surprised you would want to limit distance. I think it is well established that distance is primarily and overwhelmingly, I might add, a skill.
Rolling back seems to effect only top distance achievers. Doesn't seem fair.
I actually do have an idea, my first putt over the last 15 or 16 rounds averages a little over 22 feet. I know this because I began using @RandallT's strokes gained putting spreadsheet last fall, after converting it (mostly) to work with Excel. That average includes all first putts, whether a result of chipping or pitching or short irons or long iron shots or whatever. It doesn't include the effect of the one or two times I managed to hole a shot from off the green. As @iacassuggests, it doesn't seem like a very meaningful, statistic, as its influenced by a lot of factors.
