>Tiger’s putting, part 2

>Allright, now that I’ve come clean about my temporary violation against golf’s good will, let’s take a look at how Tiger did putt today. Fair warning that I have not watched today’s broadcast, so I haven’t seen any actual footage. This is based on statistics from PGATour.com’s very cool “ShotTracker” application.

I will ignore the crazy long putts, and the easy short ones. Let’s see how he did inbetween, which is really where most tournaments are decided:

3 – Made four-footer.
5 – Made six-footer.
6 – Missed 18-footer.
7 – Missed 19-footer.
8 – Made five-footer.
9 – Made 13-footer.
11 – Made eight-footer.
12 – Made six-footer.
13 – Made 16-footer.
14 – Made 7-footer.
16 – Missed 17-footer.
17 – Missed 14-footer.
18 – Missed 15-footer.

Basically, he made everything from 13 feet and under. I think that’s pretty damned good for anyone. He was 2 for 7 in the 14 to 19 foot range. I will have to read up a bit on my statistics, but I think that this is reasonable even for a top-flight pro.

Based on Tony’s comments, it seems the Driver was a much bigger problem than the putter.
