After Doral, Scott's putter already an afterthought


PALM HARBOR, Fla. – For all the attention paid to Adam Scott’s putter last week, it was a sign of how well the Australian made the transition to a non-anchored putter that he wasn’t asked about it until halfway through his press conference on Wednesday at the Valspar Championship.

Scott, who tied for fourth place at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, finished the week 24th in total putts and didn’t have a three-putt at Doral.

“I felt good with it last week and that’s why I wanted to give it a run and made a lot of putts,” Scott said. “Overall, I had a really good week putting and I don’t expect anything different this week.”

Maybe more encouraging for Scott was his tie for 16th at Doral in the Tour’s distance analysis category; he converted 10 of 15 attempts from 4-to-8 feet and five of nine attempts from 10-to-15 feet.
