I've at times previously given the later groups the benefit of doubt on pace with big galleries moving about and contributing to pauses. But the pandemic golf has taken that away.

Am I alone in thinking that the so called claw grip for putting is flawed when it comes to short putts -around 6 ft or so.
Look at how Garcia struggled, and how often Fleetwood and Rose miss.
Now the same with Zalatoris.
It's as if the small swing back and thru is affected by the sparse grip afforded by the claw method.
They would do well to consider a more conventional grip.

I thought the point of was the opposite, that it's better for short putts as it takes the right hand out of it, stops you turning the club, straight back and through etc. Claw grippers normally struggle more with long putts when they need to add a bit of pace to it.
