Oh and I forgot to add long rounds and rate increases. That should get it going.June 12, 2016 at 7:52 am #34845Bob NewmanParticipant
Jason, we could change that to sandbaggers in real life—or on the Senior Tour in the name of Berenard Langer and Scott Mc-Carron–they could be the printed poster for Anchoring. I can not believe that the officials are waiting for them to call it on themselves.June 15, 2016 at 10:01 am #34863James CarterParticipant
Haven’t watched Scott McCarron, but does Langer actually anchor the club? I thought he was holding it away from his chest.June 15, 2016 at 1:28 pm #34872jim mcdanielParticipant
B.L. was a great ball striker who couldn’t putt to save his life. He went to the anchored putter and saved his career.(that is info for all of you who don’t think helps) A pga official said its a game of integrity so they asked B.L. “are you anchoring the putter”….”no” well that’s good enough for them. If he’s not anchoring, then i should be able to come in to the WA as a 20 hdcp, no matter what the evidence shows.

Benard started out the year holding it a comfortable distance from his chest and could not make anything, I then noticed him moving it closer and closer to his chest and then leaning in to it as he hits the putt but I honestly think he has his forearm anchored into his body just past his elbow. I had heard from someone else that the announcers on TV had talked to rules officials and they were waiting on him to call it on himself–well good luck with that approach. The people he is playing with should be saying something to him or getting on the officials. After all is said and done, he is winning $$$ that they should be. JMO And Jim I would be willing to give you 25 shots a day if you split with me. LOLJune 17, 2016 at 8:27 pm #34898Bob TillmonParticipant
The USGA could have solved any of this sort of thing if they have limited the length of the putter, 36 inches would work. I agree with Bob on the Langer thing.
