The Outlook

Until The Players Championship, I would have stayed as far away from Scott as possible, but making the switch back to the broomstick putter, which he found success with before the putter ban, has given him new life. His ball-striking prowess has never been in question. He’s one of the best in the world from tee to green; all he needs is to be average on the greens to start popping back up on leaderboards. After successfully making it through the sectional qualifier for the U.S. Open, I think he is a good play for a top-25 bet.
