By the year 2016 new golf rules will prohibit the use of anchoring a putter to your body for a shot.

 

Lewis Bennett,  Golf Pro at Broken Top says while the U.S. Golf Association and the Royal and Ancient are firm on the change, many other golf organizations including the PGA are protesting.  "PGA of America, as a whole, you know there's 28,000 PGA professionals in the world. I think if that body, that association of PGA professionals, has a big enough push back, that maybe, we might be able to at least make them reconsider, but I think that the folks at USG and R and A are stubborn enough that there probably won't be any kind of a change."

 

Bennett says the talk of the new rule has been dominating conversations in the clubhouse, and most don't want the change and enjoy using their long putters.

 

He also thinks that by eliminating the popular putting technique could hurt the efforts of trying to bring new golfers to the game.
