It’s hard enough to play the No. 2 player in the world. Making it tougher on former Baylor golfer Luke List is that he’s putting with a wedge in the Dell Technologies Match Play.
List’s putter somehow became damaged, so he is using the blade of his wedge to putt. It’s not helping the cause, as Justin Thomas has raced out to a 3-up lead through 12 holes.
Oddly enough, List would be able to keep using his putter under the modernized rules that take effect next year.
Just not on Wednesday.
List had to putt with his wedge over his last eleven holes, but he still managed to take the match to the 18th hole before Thomas won 2-up.
List says he damaged the putter after swinging at a bush and not realizing a brick wall was behind the bush.
