Thanks to reader Rob for this. Enjoy...

It seemed like he didn't miss a shot, great performance under tough conditions.

How long before CBS/Augusta flags it?

If an anchored putter is such a big advantage, how did he finish in the middle of the pack in putting stats? 460cc heads are an advantage (available to everyone), but they're OK? Anchored putting is available to everyone, too. Some choose to putt that way, some don't.

It's more every televised shot, not literally every single shot. But still awesome nonetheless, thank you Mr. Murphy.

Really cool. Nitpicking, I wish he would let the ball come to a stop before cutting to the next shot. That is a "shot"

The answer to your question can be found by pondering the following gedankenexperiment: Where would Adam's putting have ranked without the long putter? (Or if he hadn't practiced so gosh darn hard?)

For general consumption:

All those pretty swings aside, if the only hazard on the easiest par 5 in major championship golf had actually played like a hazard (i.e. if the banks had been shaven along the tributary of Rae's Creek in front of 13 green), we'd be watching a Cabrera highlight video.

Wonder why Freddie's break in 1992 is famous and Adam's break on 13 this year is getting totally overlooked.

@Brian S: Agree, at Augusta the big deal is using the slopes on the greens on the approach shots, and Scott had a few beauties in that department during the final round - especially on the 9th. I would have liked to see that, as well as the reaction on the second shot on 13.

@RES: Historically, the bank on the 13th has never been as tightly mown as the banks on 12 and 15, and therefore also more playable. But sure, it was a good break - although hitting that soft spot on the green and spinning back on a 190-yard shot from semi-ro... er, the second cut was a very bad break.

Another major win for Scott this season would be crazy sweet. So easy to root for that guy. Perhaps some redemption at the Open Championship?
