Today at the Australian Open Adam Scott didn’t carry his usual belly putter instead he had a custom Scotty Golo with an adjustable length shaft.

He was playing with Tom Watson and a young guy from China (Mu Hu), who asked him about it. Adam said it was adjustable.

He was using the claw for him bottom hand and his top hand was super weak with the grip held against his left wrist. His tempo and distance control was very good so I reckon he’s been practicing with this for a while. The putter came up to his belt top so I’m guess it was around 38-39″ long.

Pics aren’t great but you’ll see what I mean.

    “Today at the Australian Open Adam Scott didn’t carry his usual belly putter instead he had a custom Scotty Golo with an adjustable length shaft.”

    Adam Scoot never used a belly putter, that’s why he was not seen with his usual belly putter. The writer must not watch much golf.

      I highly doubt he’s gonna decline, I think Adam might even come back stronger, he’s a very talented player, I doubt this will have much of an impact in the long run.
