According to PGA Tour data, PGA Championship co-leader Hideki Matsuyama has made 258 feet of putts through 36 holes -- the largest number of his career through a tournament's midway point. For years, Matsuyama was labeled as an elite ball-striker but inefficient putter. Thanks to a weakened grip in his putting stroke, he now has all aspects of his game working -- and it could translate into his first career major championship this weekend.
