Pavin's old-school putter

You might have noticed that Corey Pavin, 50, still putts with a 1980s-era Bulls-Eye putter with a narrow shaft, in sharp contrast to Justin Rose's space-age Taylor Made Ghost putter.

Pavin

Pavin has always been one of the best putters on TOUR, and when he was in his prime, he employed a wrap-around grip style that kept his forearms perfectly locked.

Pavin probably lost his shot to win this week when he ran through 30 putts in the third round -- he shot 69 to lose a lot of ground -- but he's still putted well enough to stick around the PGA TOUR even after his 50th birthday.

Pavin just birdied the 13th hole to get to 13 under as he chases his second top-10 in a row against the kids.
