Golf’s Governing Bodies Drop Anchor On Long Putters

The governing bodies (USGA & R&A) have proposed a rule on anchoring clubs to the body, to be effective in January of 2016.  Just as I predicted in my post a few weeks ago, they did not ban any equipment or make any equipment rulings.  The act of anchoring a club to any part of one’s body is what will be become illegal.  You can keep your belly putter, so long as it isn’t anchored against your belly or any part of your body.

“As the governing body we are doing what we think is best for the game of golf, and this is our responsibility.”

You can keep your belly putter, so long as it isn’t anchored against your belly or any part of your body.

Below is the official press release from the USGA & R&A:

Personally I’m still suffering from Ryder Cup hangover.  But the Tour rolls on and is in Vegas this week.  I could drive to Vegas in about 5 hours.  Maybe one of these years I’ll head to this event.  It would be hard to resist golfing somewhere else though, rather than watching golf.

This week is the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open at TPC Summerlin.  I’ve played TPC Summerlin.  Fun track.  I still have my “TPC” plastic beer cups from there.  Ah the memories.

The Champions Tour is playing the SAS Championship in Cary, North Carolina.  Most of the big names are playing this week.  TV is Golf Channel Friday-Sunday, 7:30-9:30PM ET.

The European Tour is contesting the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews.  Here’s a good chance to watch some great players play on the greatest golf course in the world.  Unfortunately, this tournament does not appear to be available in the USA.  If you find it on TV here, comment in and I’ll post the time and channel.

The ladies are off this week, back on next week.
