So I went to my nephew's HS golf match Tuesday.  4 schools competing.  One of the kids in my nephew's group was using a belly putter that he was anchoring.  Is this legal?  Nobody said anything during the match.  Im just wondering.

Like davep said, anchoring is not allowed.  However, I would stay out of it and not bring it up as it's up to the field to bring infractions to the attention of the tournament directors.  Now, if you research and understand the nuances of anchoring versus holding close to the body (like Adam Scott) and teach that to your nephew so that he can identify the proper ruling then you have done your due diligence.

Oh I wont be saying anything regarding this - I was just wondering.  I did tell my brother in law so he can talk to his son (my nephew) about spotting such things and asking about it during matches.
