Scott In Major Contention With Anchored Stroke

By  | 

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - It's no coincidence that Adam Scott became better in majors after when he found consistency on the putting greens - and he credits his anchored putting stroke for the improvement.

Scott has finished tied for second and eighth the past two years on Augusta National's lightning-fast greens since switching to a long putter. He's been among the top 15 in six of the past eight major events, including his disappointing second-place at the British Open after leading by four strokes with four holes to play.

Scott's not pleased with a proposed rules change banning such putters in 2016. A decision is expected later this spring.

Until he's told differently, Scott will keep using the stroke when the Masters starts Thursday that's been so effective for him in recent years.
