Adam Scott switches caddies

 

Adam Scott has made an important change ahead of this weeks 188th US Open at Shinnecock Hills - and may be making another.

The 45-year-old Australian veteran has had David Clark carrying his bag since his split with Stevie Williams, but this partnership to seems to have ended.

When Scott arrived at Shinnecock Hills this week he had a new caddy in tow. The man is Lenny Bummolo, a local New York caddie who has caddied for Scott during some of the informal rounds he has played at Shinnecock Hills.

Scott is also a little unsure about which putter he will use this week.

"I'll putt with the long putter I'm pretty sure," he said. "I just don't like thinking about it too much.

"I pick both up and I putt good with both. I don't want to get stuck trying to be perfect."

Scott switched back to the long putter (without anchoring it) at the Wells Fargo earlier year and immediately gained strokes putting in his first two events.

But he has since lost over 11 strokes putting in his last three events and it may be giving him second thoughts about which putter to use on the poa annuah greens of Shinnecock Hills.

Currently ranked 7th on Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green, Scott, a former Masters Champion, could well flourish on a course where approach shots to the green could be key - providing he has the putting finesse to benefit from it.
