The 39-year-old has eight top-25s from his 16 starts on the PGA Tour this season and ranks 67th in the FedExCup standings, but of late has been playing some of his best golf.
“I did a little reassessment of my putting and made some adjustments and I’ve made leaps and bounds of improvements in the last two weeks. So I think I’ve kind of found something that’s working very consistently and very well for me. And I’m excited for the rest of the year,” he said,
Over the weekend at TPC Sawgrass Sabbatini recorded his statistics in strokes gain through putting of the 2015 season and he avoided bogeys throughout the final round. That led to consecutive 69s over the latter 36 holes of the tournament.
“I just managed to grind out a couple times where I got myself in trouble and take opportunities that came in stride. To go through the last round without making a bogey, I was extremely proud of myself, because that’s not often accomplished out here, especially on a Sunday,” he said.
The Durbanite heads to Quail Hollow Club this week, where he tied for eighth place last year on the back of a Sunday 67, finishing the week six shots back from winner JB Holmes.
It appears that Sabbatini is coming into a rich vein of form, and his six wins on the PGA Tour indicate what that could mean. It’s been four years since he last picked up a trophy, so it’s high time for another victory.
