Retief Goosen goes back to a standard-length putter

Posted at 9:45 AM by David Dusek | Categories: Putters, Retief Goosen, Yes!

Retief_goosen Well, that experiment didn't last long.

Retief Goosen, who had been unhappy with his putting, switched to a belly putter before the start of the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines in January. He used the Yes! Tracy belly putter at Pebble Beach, and at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship as well.

But this week, the two-time U.S. Open champ has gone back to the putter he used during his victories at Southern Hills and Shinnecock Hills, a standard-length Yes! Tracy.

"I did use that head with the belly putter early in the year," Goosen said Thursday after needing only 23 putts over 18 holes en route to his 65. "But last week I decided to go back to the short putter. Maybe putting with that long putter helped me a little bit because my stroke felt very good. My tempo is good. With the belly putter, you need to have good rhythm in your stroke because it's that long."
