Meanwhile, they continue to ignore the impact of the ball on the game. First the grooves, which have had zero impact on scoring. Next the putters, which will have an impact on a select few.
I just don't understand why or how they let it get this far down the road. You can't putt croquet style between your feet but for the last 25 years or so that this has been growing in popularity it made sense to allow anchoring?
I feel for the guys who may see a significant impact on their ability to make a living. It's been horribly mismanaged and I'm very torn on my opinion based because of that mismanagement.

What standing do professional golfers have to sue the USGA and R&A? These organizations are free to set up rules as they see fit.

In practice it may or may not matter but under pressure taking your wrists out of the equation is a HUGE advantage.
I know everyone can use them right now, but the people that choose not to probably believe they would be breaking the rules of the game, and the people who use it are taking advantage of a rule loophole that was Looked over for the mercy of people with back problems so they could still play in official events, because it helped them not having to practice putting hunched over for long periods.
The competitive nature of our great game has caused some of us to take advantage of a mercy loophole
Sorry for being long winded, I feel strongly about this

Watch what Jackie Burke says around 1:10. Interesting view on anchoring of putters.

This game is hard enough, let players choose the equipment they want to play. If it's such an advantage why isn't everyone using them?

at the hacker level, I have no issue whatsoever with people using them...sort of the 'cat's outta the bag' on that...that's just my opinion...I wouldn't be against a phase out like they did with the grooves...
really, they should put a limit on the tour golf balls and/or the COI on all clubs....hitting 3 woods 320 yards and a 3 iron 295 is destroying the courses...why make all courses lay down to technology is short sighted by the people who govern the game...600 yard par 4s anyone? what is the point?
I am sure I am in the minority....

There are so many much newer innovations and equipment changes that I would prefer to see addressed, way ahead of anchoring a putter.
