Putting display pleases Scott
Adam Scott is happy with the way his putting held up in the Farmers Insurance Open despite missing out by two shots.
The runner-up posted a 19-under total to finish second behind world number one Justin Rose who held his nerve to post 21 under and take the prize.
Scott was happy with his efforts, especially on the greens, as he gets used to a new putter, and with his decision to putt almost entirely with the Torrey Pines flagsticks in.
Scott missed two short putts that might have been the difference but overall he was pleased with his radical new putter setup.
"Making the putter change was a pretty good experiment this week, it worked nicely," he said.
"I learned a lot with that style of putting this week, and it was quite a big adjustment, I have to say. And I made some errors out there with it, but hopefully it’s looking all positive and I like that."
