The Belly Putter: Here to Stay?
Golf's Burning Question

KEEGAN BRADLEY WON A MAJOR WITH AN ANCHORED PUTTER. WAS IT THE START OF A TREND?
It could be D-day for long putters. Are they legal or illegal? A weapon or crutch? A trend or fad?
The United States Golf Association could be ready to speak out on the matter. The USGA and the R&A — golf’s two governing bodies — met at the U.S. Open to talk about the long and belly putters anchored into the body. Results of those discussions will be addressed publicly at the Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.
The putters continue to stir up plenty of debate in golf circles. Either you're for them, or against them, with little area for compromise.
