Petition for Rory to go back to a blade/fastback

And this is new how?

Full disclosure, I am in fact bating you because all the data around his putting and putter usage shows the following:

1) He's never been particularly strong inside 5 feet regardless of year or putter
2) All his best seasons putting have been with a Spider of some sort
3) His worst seasons inside 5 feet are pretty evenly split between all putter types
4) His best season inside 5 feet is with a Spider, his second best was with a blade

If Rory could be fixed by a putter swap we'd have seen it already, and we kinda did, everything improved year over year when he went away from blades/mallets, because he is and always has been a volatile streaky putter. 

This is correct, in my view.

The Spider just isn't a nice club for 5ft and in.............................................

 

Come on Rors' do what's right. I'm 99% sure it's the endorsement money that puts the Spider in play.

As much as I think he looks so comfortable with the Spider on long putts, it just isn't the right club on 5ft and in. He needs a blade or the fastback he used to use. Plus a proper caddy.... plus a stronger mental game on the back 9 on Sunday.... but the Spider isn't helping 😄 

 

 

 

methinks @rukahs might be wanting Rory's cast-off Spider / sloppy-seconds! (/joke!)

peace!

Well I am honestly dumb founded at how he can not win every single tournament he enters. After standing 10ft from him at Hoylake range I have never seen or heard a ball struck like that (since Tiger). From his 56 degree to his driver, he hit the sweet spot every single time. Driver didn't deviate an inch in flight. 2 iron, sheesh, that thing sounded so pure and arrow straight. It's simply amazing how he then goes to the course and pull hooks some drivers and wedges are offline (he's one of us 😄. Must be mental. Nothing to do with Harry, or club selection etc. Just execution when it counts.

 

And he looks really comfortable with the Spider. The putter isn't the issue. Heck if we were talking putters I would tell him to switch to the center-shaft Fastback he once used.

IMHo @rukahs ... Rory is better-off sticking to this putter, and building reps/ confidence with the Spider

... with a lower-MOI blade/fastback, those Rory 'major yips' might be even worse!

 

You're obviously a Rory fan too ... i hope he laps the field at Troon!

(and then we can petition to change this GIF, to "5 time Major champion"!!)

Given that he was 496 for 496 from inside 4’ in 2024, I don’t think the putter he was using is a problem.  

A couple of weeks ago, I  missed 4 from inside 4 feet,  on the front 9....

 

And yes it was with my Spider.   More about mental state than equipment tho....

I thought that stat was wild when I first saw that mentioned, but it's actually 3' not 4', and as it turns out that isn't an uncommon stat. 17 other guys have the same streak going currently and some years see as many or more finish the entire season without missing 3' and in. Including Will Zalatoris of all people. It's almost like they're REALLY good. 😅

You’re right; it’s 3’, not 4’.  Good catch!

It's a fun stat actually, since they started accurately tracking full seasons in the modern era, no one has ever finished with a 100% make rate on 3'-4' putts, but LOTS of guys have missed just one.

I think Rory's putting is just fine, he's streaky yes, that putt on 18 was brutally hard, the one on 16 is the costly one. I think his obvious biggest strength is driving the ball, however, I am not sure that swing translates to good iron play and I think that putts too much pressure on having to putt great when the premium in the majors is more on iron play, proximity and GIRs. He also has a lot of scar tissue having to essentially win a major again for the first time.

 

I'd like to see him get it done, and the more he puts himself there he'll breakthrough again, and likely go on a tear and nab a few in a short span. Overall though I think he putts better with the Spider. If he hit his irons like Scottie, his putter is a none issue and he probably wins this by 8.

Petition for Rory to stop getting divorced and un-divorced during major season.

I think calling off the divorce has done him well. He was swinging it so well. Just a little unlucky that Bryson hat some luck and obviously the skillset to not get punished too much for missing that many fairways. While he made Bogey everytime he missed the fairway it seemed.

And of course, the nerves did not help his short putts I guess.

I do like Bryson and would love to see him more on a weekly basis, but I was wanting Rory to win this really badly. This week he would have deserved it.

Let's not forget Bryson missed a 4 footer too...

 

These guys all miss. But I agree...it was painful to watch and he had no confidence...I mean why would he, he knew he was going to blow it. 

 

I think he just needs a mental adjustment or some way mentally to free his mind.

The spider wasn’t the issue here, that bit between his ears was the issue.

The only thing that is holding Rory back from more majors (aside from unbelievable pressure and expectations, marital stress, a changing golfing landscape that involved him becoming the sacrificial lamb, 10 years of major scar tissue, and an increasingly competitive, young field of competitors headlined by the most dominant player since Tiger) is putter torque.

 

Another vote for LAB!!  Someone get him a Link.1.

Rory was not great with the Cameron near the end.  There's a reason that he moved on from it and improved his strokes gained.  Camerons rarely win a major these days.  Also look how much better Scottie got when he dropped his Cameron blade.

 

Last Cameron Major win was 2022 Open by Cam Smith.
