The crying began because you started beating people you previously could not beat. These people realize that you, with the proper equipment, are a better golfer than they are. If they can take away your ability to putt then they won't have to work to improve their own game.....much easier to bring you down than improve themselves.
Since the only thing golf commentators could talk about week after week is the long and belly putters, the USGA felt they had to do something. And since TW has said he doesn't like them the proposed rule will become law.
The proposed rule change is not based on stacks of data showing that our method is easier or in any way is advantageous, because they don't have data showing it is easier or gives an unfair advantage, most likely they have data showing that anchored putting is harder than the conventional method. So they based the proposed rule change simply on the fact that they don't like how it looks.
Basically you have put in the effort to learn a more difficult method of putting and it works for you........why?
Problems putting come down to your inability to control the putter head.
Manufacturers accidentally found the cure, but they didn't know why. They had the idea of anchoring the putter, which required a longer shaft, WHICH REQUIRED A HEAVIER PUTTER HEAD.
If you have problems controlling the head thru the stroke then a heavier head will help you have the control.
Long putters, that thing is about 500g, cut down to 35in I found it is great on super fast greens, hard to hit the ball hard enough on slower greens. Lie angle is a little too much upright for me.
Belly putters, you don't have to make any physical changes to the putter, just grip it as a conventional putter and go. You will have about 6in of shaft sticking out behind your hand, no big deal. This seems to be a better weight for me than the long putter cut down to 35in.
With a little practice you will find the conventional stroke is much easier with the heavier putter head, and next season come out and put a whoopin on them cry babies and watch them go wee wee wee all the way home.
