Well golf fans it looks like the PGA Tour is finally going to break its silence concerning the proposed ban on anchored putters. With the clock running down on giving input to the USGA on the subject, the Tour is talking, and it doesn’t sound like the USGA and R&A are going to like what they have to say. This should be real interesting as it plays out over the next few years.
In this edition of HtL we start off investigating what the PGA Tour’s stance is on anchoring, then turn our attention to Obama and Tiger, and find out who doesn’t belong in the WGHOF. Also, we look at Spencer Levin’s year off, find out what Keegan sent out on Twitter, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
