it would be interesting to see the ultimate reasons for the ban .. but then it is the red indian that matter regardless the equipment as in long or short Razz

it should not ban on those senior players who have bad problem ..

To me its getting back to the way golf has always been played. It was never anchored to any parts of the body. In terms of whether it gives any advantage... Stats doesnt show that. However i feel that it should be a uniform standard for everyone. Some hv tried like Phil and failed so its not a magical solution to yips. I dont see its mainstream anyway with the mass - dont think i want to carry the boom stick in my bag. But again probably nobody tot they will carry huge drivers anyway... But it catch up.

For me, should remove from tour due to anchoring and personally i hate looking at the broom!

it still doesn't say which rule is being abused.

just because Ernie feels that anchoring the putter is cheating, doesn't mean it's abusing the rules.

Errr...they didn't really ban the belly or long putter did they? Neither did they say that a rule is being abused.

What they have done is that now (in 2016) you cannot anchor any club directly to your body. This means you cannot even anchor a 5 wood to your body and chip/putt

So, until then it's still not cheating or abuse of rules as the current rules allows for anchoring clubs to your body. Therefore your statement that it's abused is not valid. That was my point.


Quote:
"This morning, together with The R&A, the USGA is proposing a change to the Rules of Golf for players at all levels of the game that would disallow direct or indirect anchoring of the club in making a stroke with any club from any location on the golf course.

The proposed Rule 14-1b would prohibit strokes made with the club or a hand gripping the club intentionally held directly against the player’s body, or with a forearm intentionally held against the body to establish an anchor point that indirectly anchors the club.

The proposed Rule would not alter current equipment standards and would allow the continued use of all conforming golf clubs, including belly-length and long putters, provided such clubs are used in a non-anchored manner. The Rule would target only a few types of strokes in which the club is anchored, while preserving the golfer’s ability to play a wide variety of strokes in his or her individual style.

Throughout the game’s 600-year history, the essence of the golf stroke has been to grip the club with the hands and swing it freely at the ball. This Rule change is being proposed to preserve the fundamental challenge that makes golf a unique competitive sport.

The proposed Rule change would take effect on January 1, 2016, at the start of the next four-year cycle for revisions to the Rules of Golf. This timetable provides an extended period during which golfers currently using an anchored stroke may adapt their method of stroke, if necessary, to conform to the requirements of the new Rule."
