A lot of people are making a big deal about Rory McIlroy's putting problems and while in the past he would go to Dave Stockton for a lesson and emerge holing everything, it seems that's not an option now according to my Dad Tim Rosaforte.

Missing putts (while Jordan Spieth and Jason Day seemed to be making everything) has been McIlroy’s misery since the PGA at Whistling Straits. Even before rupturing an ankle ligament playing soccer in July, his only hot round with the putter since winning the Wells Fargo by seven strokes in May came on Sunday at the U.S. Open, when he shot 66 after a phone lesson from Dave Stockton.
Coincidentally, Stockton was at the Frys.com Open as a tournament honoree. The two said hello after dinner one night, and Stockton followed him during the pro-am. But other than Stockton giving McIlroy a thumbs-up, they did little communicating on the subject of putting.
“I think it’s more mental than anything else,” McIlroy said. “Whenever you don’t see anything go in, it makes it harder and harder each and every hole that goes by.”

I just hope that relationship hasn't soured. Rors and Stockton worked great and with Jason Day and Jordan Spieth canning everything, its going to be key going forward.
