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:
