There's a new controversy on the PGA Tour ahead of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson, and it involves AimPoint putting.
After Wyndham Clark claimed his maiden victory last Sunday at the Wells Fargo Championship, the PGA Tour has made the trip down to Texas for the AT&T Byron Nelson.
The tournament, hosted at TPC Craig Ranch, is the last event on the PGA Tour schedule before the PGA Championship next week.
The PGA Championship is being hosted at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
And, it appears there could be a new controversy brewing as the countdown to the PGA Championship begins.
On Monday, Michael Kim, who finished seventh last week at Quail Hollow Club, took to Twitter to express concern over something he's noticed on the practice greens lately.
It appears that someone has been writing percentages on the practice greens to be used for the AimPoint putting technique.
However, Kim noticed something quite wrong with the percentages.
He added a photo for proof as well:
There has been a mystery player or caddy that has been writing 1% 2% 3% on the practice green for aimpoint… BUT they’re all OFF by about .5% which is a big deal if you’re trying to get a feel before a tournament round. Is it purposeful SABOTAGE??? #Controversy pic.twitter.com/wluDkN5MTT— Michael S. Kim (@Mike_kim714) May 8, 2023
For players who use the technique, the percentages aid them in how to set up their putts. The wrong percentages could throw off their feel ahead of the round.
Kim, 29, is in the field this week for the AT&T Bryon Nelson which begins Thursday in McKinney, Texas.
