Donald practicing off-green putting with driver

RSS

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Luke Donald might be onto something.

Donald has been practicing putting with a driver from just off the green, because the grass tends to be a little stickier in the afternoon and it helps put a little more pace on the shots.

Tiger Woods used his 3-wood on such shots during nine holes of practice Wednesday. He tossed down a few golf balls behind the 15th green, and putted with his fairway metal to the green. Woods then moved back about 10 more feet, and still used his 3-wood to putt toward the green.

Woods has used his 3-wood to putt before, though usually on shots pinched by thick collar around the greens at other tournaments.
