The Australian struggled for consistency on both the PGA and European Tour this year and the 35-year-old failed to pick up a single title on either circuit.
He did manage to produce some good performances this season, with a tie for fourth at the US Open and the same result in the WGC-Cadillac Championship the most notable highlights.
The displays on the green have been one of the major talking points for the 2013 Masters champion, who has had to switch from a belly putter to a short-handle due to the ban that comes into effect on January 1.
However, Scott has been downplaying the change in equipment and instead believes he is not making good enough contact with the ball on the fairways.
“I think the focus on putting is probably the least impactful thing,” he said. “I haven’t had the consistency with my striking this year because it’s one of those things where when you’re putting suffers, eventually it catches up with your ball striking.”
Scott has made a good start to the new American campaign and the Adelaide-born managed to finish second in the CIMB Classic, narrowly losing out to Justin Thomas by one stroke.
