People pay big money to be fitted for a driver that you typically use maybe 14 times a round? Pay for a nice set of fitted Irons? I would think that the club you would typically use 32 ( or 54 for some of us...… LOL) times a round would be the one you would want to get the best fitting for. Being shown scientifically all facets of your swing and knowing that the putter is set up just for you would, IMO, build confidence. Still doesn't excuse practicing...…… LOL
You're right. There should be none. Three is not a lot, but it's three too many. The question is whether Brooks thinks three is a lot. Also, is Brooks including "cheating" where there was no intent, which technically wouldn't be cheating? I don't think Brooks should have made that statement unless he can explain exactly how he knows what he's talking about. If you're going to cast shade, be prepared to back it up.
WOW! That's amazing coming from Peter. Kostis. I now refuse to give Patrick Reed the benefit of the doubt any longer. I think Peter should have informed the rules officials when he saw this cheating. I think it was his duty at the time to protect the field and not speak out now about it years later.
