Anyone who watched Rory McIlroy winning at Bay Hill will doubtless have been amazed and excited by the complete turnaround in his putting.

Rors accumulated 10.027 Strokes Gained putting over the week. He averaged exactly 25 putts per round and took an incredible 100 putts total for the week.

So how does a man, who metaphorically couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo become the best putter in the world within a few days?

The transformation began last Monday when Rory met with Brad Faxon on the putting green at the Bear Club in Florida.  According to my sources, the pair spent several hours working together with Faxon, a legendary putter in his own right, trying to impart some of his style on McIlroy's stroke.

That lesson then prompted Rory to change from the 33 inch shaft he had been using all year in his TP Mullen into a 34.25 inch shaft with a TaylorMade TP Collection Black Copper Soto head.

Interestingly that 34.25 inch shaft is they same length Rory used to win all four of his Majors.
