Scottie Scheffler's caddie Ted Scott believes other people 'created a weakness in his putting'. 

Scheffler cantered to his second Masters title last Sunday. 

In truth, many predicted the first major of the year was a foregone conclusion given his stellar form this season. 

Scheffler's Masters title added to wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and his defence of the 2024 Players Championship

A common criticism of Scheffler has been that his putting has let him down. 

There was no such worry for Scheffler on the greens last week at Augusta National. 


Across the week, only two players used their putter less than Scheffler.

Scheffler didn't use his TaylorMade Spider Tour X more than 30 times in each of his four rounds.  

The aforementioned Scott believes the 27-year-old does not have a weakness. 

He told reporters: "What is he not good at? I don't know. 

"I think his super power is people that are super powerful are good at everything. 

"And he seems to be good at everything. He doesn't really have a weakness. 

"I think people created a weakness in his putting. He's not a weak putter. He's a good putter. He's a very good putter."

Scheffler has been working with renowned putting coach Phil Kenyon for several months now.

GolfMagic's Johnny Percival caught up with Kenyon last December. 

"I remember the first time I went to see him I had to drag him off the green," Kenyon said. 

"I think he could have stayed there all day until it was dark."

Scheffler's peers have been waxing lyrical on the world number one as the dust settles on his Masters title. 

Matthew Fitzpatrick spoke of Kenyon's impact before his title defence at the RBC Heritage on the PGA Tour

"He's the best putting coach in the world in my opinion," Fitzpatrick said, who has worked with Kenyon since he was 15.

"I think one of the biggest things is I know for a fact that a certain player was being asked by another coach recently to see if he could have a look at his putting and Phil just... he just didn't care because he knew that Phil was doing the best job and he knew what he was doing and he's not like, doesn't feel threatened or anything like that. 

"I think that's what makes him such a good coach. He believes in what he does and he works hard to be as good as he can. I think that's why I've always had so much faith in him over the years to help me improve."

Scheffler opened up on the exact moment he decided to hire Kenyon before the Masters. 

Kenyon flew to see Scheffler in Texas and the pair looked at his stroke for two days. 

The rest, as they say, is history. 

"As I watched Phil, I could tell that he was open-minded, and that's the type of people I like to work with," Scheffler said.

"And we kind of hit the ground running in the fall."
