Adam Scott Refreshed By "Forced Change"

Rex Hoggard at talks to Adam Scott, who is re-debuting a short putter at this week's Presidents Cup after a few weeks of practice.

Hoggard's report includes this quote with Scott putting the best spin on the loss of his long putter, which he could still use, just without the anchoring part.

“It was a good time to make the change and I spent some time working on it, a similar amount of time actually when I went to the long putter,” Scott said. “It’s kind of refreshing to make a forced change because my putting stats are certainly unimpressive this year.”

It's an interesting time to re-debut the old/new method, either speaking to Scott's desire to test his new approach under pressure, or under the light pressure of an exhibition. Just depends on your view of the event I suppose.
