Rory McIlroy shot a 6-under 65 on Labor Day to win the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. McIlroy, who made news last week when he showed up at The Barclays with a new Scotty Cameron putter, credited his new stick for the win.
McIlroy stated that his Scotty Cameron Concept M1 mallet putter allows the face to remain square at impact.
“I feel like with the putter change to a mallet, it doesn’t encourage that face to close that much, which is the bad putt I was getting,” McIlroy said. “So just sort of encourages the face to stay a little more square through impact.”
You can’t argue with the results. McIlroy led the field in putts per green in regulation (1.604). He also led the field in driving distance (312.9 yards) using a Nike Vapor Fly Pro driver.
