Cabrera inches away from taking the outright lead at the 17th

Scott birdies the 18th. Cabrera playing the 18th now all pressure is on.

And he just pulled off an amazing pressure shot to leave himself with a straightforward putt for the birdie at the 18th.

Adam Scott is the winner. Cabrera really unlucky.

Can't take anyone using that putter seriously... :(

It's a shame cos Scott seems like a decent bloke - even if his caddy isn't...

Know what you're saying. Caddy is too big for his boots and those putters should be banned.

I've never understood the long putter should be banned argument. Everyone could choose to use them if they really thought it gave their competitors a benefit.

Aren't they getting banned next season?? Maybe not the long putters but at the anchoring the putter to your body will be

2016 from what I've read. Ban isn't official though there is discussions going on.

Changes the game too much, like over-sized heads. Golf is what it is, if you make it easier by allowing huge driver heads or putters you can stabilise on your torso, it diminishes the challenge.

As James said, it is the stabilising thing that is the issue.

I only noticed the long putter say 2 yrs ago but from what it's been around for 40+ yrs.

EDIT: A quick google of it says it was first use professionally in '86 "Johnny Miller was the first professional to use the long putter, even for a limited time to help with his less than good putting stroke. Jim Ferree first used the long putter in 1986 and he says it "saved my golf life". With a bad case of the yips he was ready to quit golf."

Some long putters you don't rest on your chest. The stabilisation thing is the key issue.

The putter certainly did the business for him last night he must have thought he'd won in with that putt on the 18th but the shot from Cabrera to land it within 6ft was amazing.

I will say that the putter is within the rules of golf so you until the changes come into force you can't really have a go about it and to be fair to Scott he seems like a decent bloke even if his caddy is a complete tool.

As for the bigger club heads and all that the courses they're able to make now are getting tougher all the time and people want to see big hitters so the game has evolved with the times it's scary how much R&D goes into finding that 1% extra on a golf club even if most of it is probably bullsh*t to convince people with too much money to spend £300 on a new driver.

With my football career likely to come to and end this summer I'm thinking of getting into golf just not sure I have the temperament for it as I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to sport.

So why did you keep with the footie for so long? :p

If you're a perfectionist, then golf is the game for you. You need to do everything right or you won't get anywhere. It really is the case that you are playing against yourself every time you play. Love it!

I get massively frustrated when I don't get things right I've been told to cheer up after scoring a goal because it was a bit of a scuff.

I've played a bit of golf but not for about 2 years now so decided best thing to do is get a few lessons before I start playing so I'm at least practising the right things when I do play.

Lessons are a must, imo. No point trying to improve if you're building upon a dodgy swing.

The first shot of the round will require players to hit more than 300 yards on a slight right dogleg if they are to clear a deep fairway bunker. The undulating green is crowned and difficult to hold.

Anyone had a wee bet?

Got a massive £2.50 on Phil Mickelson to win, think he was +5 over night, so needs to have a (very) good day today.

Also got £1.25 E/W on Stenson, think he went in +1 or Par.. not sure.

Will have it on throughout today, but no where near as good as the run in on Sunday.
