Fisher (67) puts new putter to good use

MEXICO CITY – Ross Fisher was pleased with the way he’d been hitting the ball this season, but his putting just hadn’t been what he’d hoped for to start the year.

So after watching Dustin Johnson win two weeks ago in Los Angeles and take over the No. 1 spot in the world ranking, not to mention Jason Day’s play last season, Fisher decided to follow their example and try the same putter (the TaylorMade Spider Limited Red) used by the world Nos. 1 and 2.

“I put a new putter in this week, Monday mid-morning and kind of liked the feel of it,” Fisher said. “I took it out to practice on Tuesday and Wednesday and I thought I might as well stick with it, I’d be foolish to go with something else.”

The result was one of the Englishman’s best putting rounds in some time on his way to a 4-under 67 and a share of the Day 1 lead at the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Fisher needed just 27 putts on Thursday, including seven one-putts, and was third in the field in strokes gained: putting, which is dramatic improvement over his putting in 2016 on the PGA Tour.

Fisher is among the group of Nike athletes who had to find new equipment this year after the company stopped producing clubs.
