As you’re well aware from your own money games on the golf course, one of the differences the match play format lends is allowing players to concede putts to their opponents. However, the average hacker is likely much more generous with giving putts than a PGA Tour pro is (at least I am). Sometimes pros make opponents putt out a tap-in just because they feel like it or perhaps to get under their opponents’ skin.
Jason Day has a history of being rather stingy when it comes to conceding putts. He kicked off the day of pre-tournament press conferences at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship with some amusing stories of times that he made his opponents angry at him because he didn’t concede very short putts.
