PGA Championship 2018: Adam Scott’s two putter setup and the details behind the flat sticks in the bag at Bellerive
Adam Scott, playing in the final group on Sunday at the PGA Championship alongside eventual winner Brooks Koepka, played stellar golf in the final round, holding a share of the lead up until the 14th hole. For someone without a top-10 finish all season, it was an impressive run at his second major title. And Scott did so carrying two putters in the bag, one of the more unusual setups we saw at this year's PGA Championship.
Though TV announcers picked up on Scott's bag setup on Sunday, according to Titleist, Scott had two putters in play on Thursday and Saturday, too, but never used the shorter putter. Scott is known for using his broomstick Scotty Cameron by Titleist center-shafted Kombi Long mallet, but the 2013 Masters champion also added his conventional-length Scotty Cameron by Titleist 340, often referred to as a Newport 2 Timeless, to the bag at Bellerive Country Club. The company also confirmed that Scott carried two putters last week at the WGC-Bridgestone.
Scott, who usually carries three wedges in addition to his pitching wedge (52-, 56- and 60 degrees), made room for the second putter by going with just a 54- and 60-degree wedge.
Coming into the PGA Championship, Scott sported a woeful -.479 strokes gained/putting mark, ranking 192nd on tour this season. At Bellerive last week, the Aussie ranked 19th in strokes/gained putting for the week en route to his T-4 finish.
