10:55 AM ET 07.22 | Adam Scott is ready to become the first Australian to win The Open for 19 years - and suffer all the controversy that will go with it. But it will also re-open the debate about modern technology and what constitutes fairness in the Royal and Ancient game. For Scott will be using a broomhandle putter, which traditionalists would like to see banned, while his caddie, Steve Williams, split acrimoniously from Woods last year following a long-running majorladen partnership. Leading players including Woods, Ernie Els and Colin Montgomerie believe the broomhandle should be illegal because it eliminates the conventional putting stroke. Woods has even had correspondence with R and A chief executive Peter Dawson about how the wording of the Rules of Golf should be changed to prevent them being used in competition. The 14-time major winner believes their length should be limited to the same as the shortest club in the bag to stop players tucking them under their chin and then guiding the putter with one hand.
