Masters’ Golf Tradition Renews Woods’s Scrutiny of Long Putters

Bubba Watson, who plays golf with a pink driver, is a traditionalist when it comes to his putter.

Watson opposes so-called belly putters, such as the 43-inch-long Callaway Golf Co. club Keegan Bradley jammed into his stomach in winning the PGA Championship in August. It was the first time one of golf’s four major titles was won with a putting method in which the top of the shaft is anchored to a player’s body.
