Adam Scott is hoping he can get his putter going when he returns to action in the Valero Texas Open this week.
Scott is keen to end his two-year drought as soon as possible and could be in with a good chance this week if he can find his touch on the greens.
The Australian has also failed to finish in the top 10 since June of last year, meaning he has now dropped to 59 in the world rankings, and could be in danger of missing out on the US Open in June.
It has prompted Scott to return to the Texas Open for the first time in seven years, and he does have happy memories of the course having won the tournament in 2010.
Scott is happy with the way he is striking the ball and now just needs to get the putter firing.
“I think I need my strength to be my strength, and that’s ball striking. It’s starting to take shape nicely,” Scott said. “But I also need my putting to be at the PGA Tour average or better; it’s not but the signs are there.
“Putting those two together is important, and my intensity and focus during events also needs to lift.”
