Examples of PUTT in a Sentence
It was stressful, i was ecstatic to make it out of the playoff. I was one putt away from not being in match play and then I got through and it started from scratch.
It was a tough putt coming into the hill over on 18, i misread it slightly and hit it to about 5 feet and missed it. But fortunately in the playoff, I hit it to the exact same spot. I knew the line and it was a nice straight putt for the win.
Im shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday, finishing at 6 under to match the second-highest winning score since the Honda moved to PGA National in 2007. He was the tours rookie of the year last season, plus has played more tournaments and more rounds than anyone since the 2018-19 season began nearly a year and a half ago. And now, hes a winner, picking up $ 1.26 million this week and becoming the Hondas 10th international champion in the last 16 seasons. Im birdied four of his first five holes, then birdied two of the final four after sticking tee shots on the tough par-3 15 and 17th holes within 8 feet both times to finish off the victory. Mackenzie Hughes, a Canadian who made the cut on the number Friday, shot Mackenzie Hughes second consecutive 66. Playing alongside Im, Mackenzie Hughes was part of some serious fireworks on the last two holes and missed a birdie putt at the par-5 finishing hole that would have gotten Mackenzie Hughes into a tie for the top spot. I love being in the mix.
Eddie hit his shots to the green, then came over to tell us he had run out of balls, then he walked off. I thought he lost four or five. We are about 80 percentsure it was five, 20 percentfour. He was quick, so it was hard to keep track. He did not ask if he could borrow one from me or George. It did not look like he wanted to play. He did not putt with his putter on the third hole; he putted with a wedge. So there was a lot happening.
One of the things the things that helped change my putting around was if I had a 10-foot putt to win on the 18th green... I wouldn't want anybody else to putt it, so as much as I was struggling, I still would choose Padraig Harrington to read that putt and hit that putt.
