He’s gaming it!

Yep. Really had no doubt that he would at least one day.  Nobody flies halfway around the world with a putter to just practice with .  It’s not like it’s the Sanderson farms event and the Tout van Guys were bored and talked him into trying one on the practice green.

Well clothing contracts are out the window, thought it was great seeing him wearing Adidas...

 

Agree with the 'Indigenous vs. the Arrow'. Rors has said this himself (not the PC version LOL), and he just likes to have a different look on occasion - Whether that translates to going back to the Spider or not who knows...

 

Believe he also said he prefers the look of a blade, but feels he putts better w/the mallet (Not sure if the stats would support this?).

 

Regardless, my final comment for all the TM Haters, I've had Scotty's and IMHO my custom TP Soto is of the same quality of materials and workmanship. Scotty's are beautiful, but mostly $500 worth of hype. Really surprised he didn't have a glorious custom TP model done up like the amazing 'Champion Golfer of the Year' has... 😄

 

Alrighty, go to town.

Im intrigued by the scotty headcover , because usually if a guy uses one or two clubs from alternative manufacturer too their contracted one don't they normally cover them with the contracted ones head covers (thinking Wilson/Mizuno staffers who used TM drivers over the years) but the fact that Rory has a scotty cover in the bag would make me question if his contract is no longer (or was ever??) for all 14 clubs, either way I like the change cos its shows he still cares enough not too just stick with whatever he's given and he still wants too get the magic back 

 

Cash is King as well - interesting vibe to be giving out at the Olympics that is for sure.  Honestly wouldn’t surprise me these days if we later find out that it is Rory trying to send out some sort of subliminal message 😂

I prefer Cameron over TM putters. But everyone is entitled to their opinion and choice. So definitely don’t want to go to town on anyone who’s opinion isn’t aligned with mine! Haha. It’s not like there is some secret sauce or groundbreaking tech or materials in either. Play what you are most comfortable with. Enjoy that Soto! A picture would be nice. Don’t see too many custom TPs.

I have not read the entire thread, but has anyone noticed Rory is not wearing hat. Not even am Ireland Team Hat. Like he is totally unbranded.

He never does in the Ryder Cup either. A lot of European players go without. They'd never do it during a regular event because they'd be giving up a lot of $$$ and I'm sure it's in their clothing/equipment contract somewhere. As others have said, it seems like all that stuff is out the window in international competition and not a regular tour event.

He claims his head is too small for regular hats and Nike makes them custom to fit him. And they didn’t make him any small enough to wear.  No kidding this Is what he said.  Someone else reported it on the Olympic thread in tour talk , backed by a tweet from a source who got him to answer the question.

Robert Rock being the most famous example on the ET. Though if I had his head of hair, I wouldn’t either.

Anything more to say genius?

Other than to say I was correct and take a victory lap? Slowly reread the very first line of my post to bladehunter. Rory put the Cameron in play and it has become a small story at this time which is exactly what I stated. Had he used his TM putter yesterday in competition him practicing with the Cameron would have been a non story, the nothing burger, as I also stated. But hey thanks for recognizing my genius. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

I think it looks better too, but he doesn't think so and he has admitted his stroke can almost get yippy with a blade and gets indecisive with his aim.  I think this is probably one of those times where he just wants to look at something different for a week or two again and then back to the spider since he feels more comfortable with his aim and stroke.  I wonder if he'd like the Spider FCG with plumbers neck that Morikawa was using

 

Would've been cool to see the last putter he won majors with in the bag too haha


Interesting info, was that from an interview somewhere?

To be fair, the very first bit says "Unless he puts it in play on Thursday" which he did, so...

I was also JUST thinking about all the weird excuses he came up with for not playing in the previous Olympics. Zika virus, then trash talking the whole idea saying it was stupid, then saying he didn't know which country he'd represent.....it was just a mess. I like the guy, but his putting isn't the only thing that gets yippy sometimes. 😄

Adidas seems to be the sponsor of Northern Ireland, like it is for the US Golf team. Great Britain is wearing Adidas in all sports, as well as Australia has a deal with Asics.

Rory is competing for Ireland (sponsored by Adidas) at the Olympics. There is no Northern Ireland Team.

Northern Irish sportspeople can compete for either Ireland or GB. As an Amatuer Rory would always have played under the Golfing Union of Ireland Umbrella and hence he is playing for Ireland at the Olympics. We hope he wins 🏅for Ireland. 

He's not wearing a cap. I always prefer not to play in a cap as I find my head sweats a little under a cap. Wonder how many pros would wear a cap, but for sponsorship.

If you were going to the Olympics to win, I would have thought you would play the same clubs as on tour, rather than swap out your putter?  Unless you don’t have confidence in it. 
 

It will be interesting to see how he scores.  Putting is such a huge part of the game and confidence.  At his level, I would think he has some flexibility in his clubs selection and not tied into 14 TM clubs?

I don’t think anyone breathing believes he has confidence in any putter since maybe around 2011 or so.  It’s hard to watch at times honestly

Sorry for that, one of my best friends is from Northern Ireland and he would not be happy with my post…

 

Again, my apologies and thank you for the clarification.

spacer.pngI do believe it was mentioned earlier in the post, but to the OP's forum title....this is NOT the same Scotty he used before. I was watching the coverage last night, and this putter does not have the 3 black bombs in the cavity. It was one bomb and then a cirlce T. Hence, this is a new wand made for him (maybe a back up from the original), but not the once he won the US Open with.
