McBeth, on the other hand, has been scrambles and C2 putts, both of which are well outside 100th in the world. It should be noted that this data is from only two events as McBeth missed the Silver Cup, but still, 120 players putting better than the 4X World Champ from C2 is wholly unexpected. Also, McBeth has clearly been struggling when he misses his drive. While his C2 putting is 50% lower than Wysocki’s, his scrambles are the real area of concern, statistically. If Wysocki misfires on his drive, he has an 8 in 10 chance of saving the par. McBeth pars less than 6 in 10.
That is a huge difference and is our UDisc Statistic of the Week: McBeth’s Scramble Percentage: 57%.
If McBeth is going to Fivepeat as World Champion, he needs to recover better than he has done at the first Pro Tour events, and bearing in mind his showing on day one, he has either improved his scrambles, or he is simply not missing on his drives.
