You can't be serious thinking that the anchoring rule is about helping Tiger beat Jack's record ?
Adjust your sarcasm meter, it's off. :-) Turtleback doesn't think that, but the poster he was responding to does. Take it up with him:
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.
...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?
