Scott changes putter for Masters

Basketball 3-pointer: High school athlete with a disability hits shot of a lifetime

Due to the long putters being banned at the end of the year, Scott has been trying out a standard putter but has now had a change of heart.

With the first Major happening this weekend at Augusta, the world number six’ change of mind has surprised many.

"That was the reason for it, I'm coming into a Major, I'm not here to throw the balls up in the air and see where they fall."

Scott, who won the Masters in 2013 and has been challenging for the green jacket ever since, feels happy making a return to Augusta.

"Coming back here is always a special feeling. 

"No matter what, when you get the invitation to come and play, but since winning it's meant so much more to me. 

"It's been an incredible two years," he added.

In the opening two rounds of the Masters Scott will be playing with Australian amateur Antonio Murdaca.
