The usga is rapidly losing touch with average golfers, course owners, and equipment manufacturers. Officious bullies imo. I don't really care what they say. I will buy whatever putter, wedge, driver I want and swing it however I want. Just ban whatever type equipment Tiger doesn't play and mess with everyone who isn't Tiger already so he can beat Jack's record. That's what they want.
No. They aren't. Just as with the groove rule, 6 months after this rule is implemented no one will give it a second thought.
But yes, you are right, the root of this rule change is an international conspiracy to make sure Tiger breaks Jack's major record. I wonder what they will do to make sure Tiger breaks Sam Snead's total wins record?
BTW, David Fay just came out and said that edits to the proposed rule change on anchoring are unlikely.
Oh no, the humanity!!
