‘Rookie’ Austin Ekrot (24, USA, photo)’s biggest concern was putting. Debuting on the PGA Tour this season, he participated in 18 tournaments and was eliminated from the cut in 10. He only made the top 10 once. It was all because of the putt. His putting ability was 105th on the PGA Tour this season.

Ekrot changed the number of putters, and it worked. Ekrot recorded 10 birdies and 1 double bogey in the 3rd round of the PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson (total prize money: $9.5 million) held at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, Texas on the 14th (Korean time). On this day, he reduced 8 strokes in one day alone and put his name at the top of the leaderboard with a median total of 16 under par 197 strokes. He tied for the lead with Ryan Farmer (USA) and Dou Zecheng (China) and came close to winning the first regular tour of his career.먹튀검증

His secret weapon was the putter he used in high school. Having struggled with putting all season long, he recently found this putter in his garage. He said, “The putter I used in the past looked good, so I put it in my bag for now.”

In fact, the number one contributor to reducing the number of at-bats that day was the putt. He reduced 6.7 strokes only on the green that day. It was also Putt who saved him from a crisis situation. He faced a crisis by making mistakes on the tee shot and second shot in a row on the 11th hole (par 4), but succeeded in putting about 10m and recorded a par save. On the 12th hole that followed, he putt for a birdie about 7m away and increased his momentum. He said, “I gained confidence as the long putt went in.” Afterwards, Ekrot reduced two more strokes and wrote the daily best score for the day.

In this game, Kim Si-woo (28) cut 3 strokes and took the second win of the season with a mid-total 14 under par 199 strokes. Since Si-Woo Kim reached the top of his career with 4 wins at the Sony Open in January, he has been struggling with no top 10 prizes other than a tie for 7th at the Zurich Classic, a two-man team game. However, in this tournament, he showed stable performance by recording 60 at bats for three consecutive days, and booked his best performance after winning the Sony Open.
