Scottie Scheffler has tried a few different putters this year in an attempt to fix his putting woes, and he was recently spotted with a new short stick at this week's Hero World Challenge.

Scheffler, 27, has really struggled on the greens this year, finishing the PGA Tour season ranked 162nd in strokes gained putting. Thankfully, the rest of his game was imperious, and he still finds himself sitting at the top of the official world golf rankings despite looking very suspect with the flat stick.

What putter is Scottie Scheffler using?

In an attempt to solve his issues, Scheffler appears to be trialling a Logan Olson blade putter. Logan Olson is a relatively small brand that specialises in handmade putters. Logan, the company's founder, makes each putter by hand, and he recently revealed that he has been working on a project over the past few months, collaborating with some of the world's top 10 players.

This could well be the fruits of his labour, and if this new putter gets Scheffler back on track, it could be a huge year for both the current world number one and Logan Olson putters. 

Scheffler has switched between various Scotty Cameron putters this year and a TaylorMade Spider, so to see him opting to use a putter from a more boutique brand is a big statement.

He has also put TaylorMade's new Qi10 LS driver in play, joining fellow TaylorMade staffers Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, who both have the new driver in the bag. 

Justin Rose has also opted to use the Qi10 LS this week, while Taylor Montgomery is using the Qi10.

Another player who appears to have made a significant equipment change is Will Zalatoris.

Zalatoris has been out of action with a back injury since April, and his return to competitive golf has seen him adopt a L.A.B. Mezz.1 Max, the same putter that Adam Scott has been using for some time, and Lucas Glover claims cured his putting.

The broomstick-style putter has grown in popularity in recent years and may help Zalatoris achieve a more solid stroke as well as relieve strain from his back. 

It will be fascinating to see if this is a short-term fix to aid his recovery or a long-term solution to one of the more nerve-wracking putting strokes we've seen on Tour in quite some time.
