Scott announced his intentions to the Australian Associated Press on Wednesday, saying it was "maybe the smarter thing to do."
The world's sixth-ranked golfer knows his time with the anchored putter is growing short -- golf will ban the long stick beginning in 2016. Scott used a shorter, traditional putter in his first three PGA Tour events this year.
But a missed cut at the Valspar Championship and a tie for 35th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational may have persuaded him to return to more-familiar equipment.
Scott used an anchored putter to win his first green jacket at the Masters in 2013.
"I am going back as a previous champion for the rest of my life and I have played the course really well over the last five years now," he said.
