In a drama-filled final round at Doral, playing in super tough conditions, Adam Scott navigated his way to the top of the leaderboard for the second straight week, securing his second WGC title at the Cadillac Championship. It certainly wasn’t the easiest victory in the world, with Scott finding himself six shots off the pace with 13 holes to play after dumping balls in the water that led to double-bogeys on nos. 3 and 5. However, he showed last week in his win at the Honda Classic, that he could win with a quadruple-bogey on his card — though it was in the third round.

That’s just how good the 35-year-old Australian is playing. Oh, and don’t forget — as no one will let him — he’s doing it all while putting with the short putter since anchoring, the technique that he won the 2013 Masters with and rose to the no. 1 ranking for a period of time, was banned at the start of 2016. Looks like Scott is going to be just fine.

When Jordan Spieth saw Rory McIlroy had made the change this week to his putting grip to left-hand low or “cross-handed,” Spieth said to McIlroy, “You’ve switched to the dark side, I see.”

McIlroy made it no secret earlier this week at the WGC-Cadillac Championship that he was switching putting grips after missing the cut at last week at the Honda Classic. (One of the beauties of Doral is that there’s no cut, so what do you have to lose?) Funny enough, McIlroy, who lit it up on Friday, firing a 7-under 65, was concerned before going with the big change that people would accuse him of “copying” Spieth, who putts cross-handed and is arguably the best putter in the world at the moment.

After missing the cut last week at the Honda Classic, Rory McIlroy needed a change — something, anything. McIlroy was tinkering around with his putting during practice over the weekend and decided that he was going to try putting the left-hand low with his grip into competition for the first time since the early days of turning pro in 2008.

He initially revealed to the world that this might be a possibility by posting a picture on Instagram with the cross-handed putting grip and confirmed that it was indeed the case during his press conference at the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Wednesday.

Put some good work in the last few days, ready for the blue monster this week!
