Like I said before, if a big advantage was there everyone would use it. I don't think players decline to change just because it isn't fair. If you grew up using the traditional style, you wouldn't want to change more than likely b/c it would feel weird and you prefer the traditional style. If you grew up anchoring, then I don't see a problem with it b/c that is what you prefer. I just don't see it as an advantage. You putt for $$ so don't take the $$ away. They should've thought about this issue when anchoring became an option not many years later.
It, without question, should be banned.
What is anchoring? TIA
Holding it against your body.
The PGA has experimented with larger holes and shorter courses Now they want to allow something that has made golf a little easier for over a decade. They are a confused bunch of idiots, imo.
I can see their point that its against the spirit of the game, since its not a true swing or stroke if you're "holding" the club with more than your hands. Matter of opinion though, obviously.
I have no problem with anchoring, no problem if they outlaw it either. Then again we can putt however we want anyway, unless we're planning to enter sanctioned tourneys. They won't stop making or selling the long putters.
Agree 100% with Seabreeze2. When it became recognized as sound and introduced to all the kids it was too much. Most average once a week Ams don't have the time to practice and get properly fitted with the belly or longer putter. Logically it should work, especially on faster greens.....with the proper fitting and practice.
