It was a dramatic ending at the Players Championship this week with Sergio Garcia winning the tournament in the end. As one of Scotty Cameron Tour Putter fans I was delighted to see his victory, especially just after I mentioned him in the last Circle T Column.
When Garcia first started using Taylor Made putters he used a Rozza putter. Several years past trying many different putters before Garcia switched back (very recently) to using a Scotty Cameron putter for the Players Championship tournament. But this year (very recently) he switched back to a Scotty’s tour putter. When our president, Mr. Fukuda visited the studio in April he heard from an insider that Garcia started using a Scotty’s putter again. But who would have thought it would affect his play so instantly!ﾂ黴ﾂ黴
It is quite obvious that the Scotty’s putter had a lot to do with his comeback. He had been struggling with his putting for the past few years, and it seemed his putting affected his whole play. But this past week, his putting was superb and that was a big factor of his playoff victory.
It shows how putting is crucial for golf, or how the putter club itself can be crucial, when Garcia kissed the putter head with his playoff victory.ﾂ黴 He definitely wasn’t caring about his contract matters with his sponsor.ﾂ黴 By the way, Garcia uses Newport 2 putter now.
