Title favourite Adam Scott will probably stick with his trusty broomstick for the Australian Open, despite trialling a shorter putter during practice.
Scott used a specially-ordered 40-inch putter on the front nine before reverting to his familiar, chest-anchored long putter for the rest of his pro-am round at The Lakes.
He's not 100 percent certain which putter he will use in tomorrow's opening round, but is leaning towards the long wand.
With golf's rule makers announcing they are likely to outlaw putters anchored to the body, Scott is already planning for life after the broomstick.
However he insists he isn't being scared into a hasty change by the potential ban.
