Anchors away as PGA Tour players adapt to change
Yahoo News - about 1 year
By Mark Lamport-Stokes LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Just two weeks remain before PGA Tour players have to adapt to a ban by golf's rulemakers on long putters being anchored to the body and Tim Clark is among those who expect "some challenges along the way". South African Clark, one of the leading critics of the rule change along with former major winners Adam Scott, Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson, has been using the anchored technique for 18 years and the same putter for more than a decade. Clark was publicly vocal in his opposition to the proposal when it was first suggested in December 2012 but says he "will be just fine" with a revamped putting method when the 2015-16 PGA Tour resumes early next month.
