McGirt reiterated numerous times in his champion’s press conference that he didn’t feel comfortable over the ball during the final round. However, when he got on the greens, the putter felt right in his hands and he was able to erase any ball striking errors he had made with an ironclad short game.
He finished the week 16th in strokes gained: putting, seventh in strokes gained: tee to green and tied for first in strokes gained: total. That usually gets it done.
