Rory McIlroy is trying to fix his flatstick.
For now, that means a new coach and a new putter. McIlroy is using a Scotty Cameron M1 prototype and referenced his new coach Phil Kenyon Thursday, according to a report from Mike McAllister of PGATour.com.
“We’ll see how it goes and work hard at it and hopefully I start to see little improvements each and every week,” McIlroy said.
Kenyon is the owner of the Harold Swash Putting School of Excellence and has worked with a long list of Tour pros. Prior to the Deutsche Bank this weekend, McIlroy’s strokes gained putting average of -.135 stood as his worst output since 2011. Through 36 holes in Boston, McIlroy sits at 4-under and is currently top 10 in the field in putting.
