Speaking of putting (previous post), someone who really struggled on the greens this year was Davis Love. I read the other day that Love was ranked 195th out of 196 on Tour in putting. That’s dismal.
It was just the beginning of Davis’s problems. He had quite an off year that saw him drop to 51st in the world rankings. To add injury to insult, in late September Love tore tendons in his left ankle when he stepped in a hole. Not good.
At age 43, I wonder how competitive Love will be until he’s eligible for the Champions Tour in 2014. Davis has always been a fine ball-striker, so it’s hard to dismiss him.
But that ankle will have to heal well and he’ll need some semblance of a touch on the greens.
