Scrambler: Marksaeng

We all know the importance of getting up and down when misfiring an approach shot into the green. Not only to keep the card tidy, but to keep morale high heading to the next.

The scrambling statistic records how often a player scores par or better on holes where the player misses the green in regulation.

Take a bow Prayad Marksaeng, who recorded a 66.3% strike rate of getting his ball out of the rough stuff and into the cup, finishing the year ahead of a resurgent Sergio Garcia, who relied heavily on his short game when landing his second title in succession at the Andalucia Masters.
