Glad I never tried to use one and became reliant on it

Just made the same post. We must have been in the process of making the post at the same time. I just took a little longer to make mine.

I can't putt but found it even harder to putt with an anchored putter

They can, just can't anchor them.

The January 1, 2016, timetable for implementation also provides an extended period in which golfers may, if necessary, adapt their method of stroke to the requirements of the new Rule.

I don't get it...If it is available to EVERYONE, how is it an advantage? Golfers using anchored putters still miss putts...Golfers are well known to grab any advantage that is there...IF it were a real edge, I think EVERY TOUR would be nothing but anchored putters.

Some golfers have a little more respect for the traditions of the game as well as some dignity. They understand that while the putters are indeed legal, they are still controversial and refrain from using them.

I don't think it's undignified to anchor a putter or anything, it's just another advancement in golf I guess

I wonder if there was any backlash when they started using graphite shafts, or adjustable drivers, or fatso grips

I guess you are still using a persimmon head and balata? Balata too new for you? Maybe a gutta percha ball?

Those are all more traditional and certainly the sound of a well struck drive with a 'wood' is more dignified.

If Tiger was using a belly putter they wouldn't even talk about banning them.

new drivers, irons, shafts, and balls have done much more damage to the game then the anchored putter has.
