PGA Tour against proposed ban on anchoring
MARANA, Ariz. - The PGA Tour has notified golf's governing bodies that it sees no reason to ban anchored putting strokes.
PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem says there is not enough evidence to show a competitive advantage gained by using a long putter or belly putter that is anchored against the body. Three of the last five major champions used a belly putter.
The U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf Club announced the proposed rule Nov. 28. They offered a 90-day comment period.
The next development is whether the USGA and R&A decide to adopt the new rule.
