I always thought long putters were so queer, especially once Adam Scott started using one. Hopefully this will get rid of some of these no name guys that keep winning the big tourneys. I think it paves the way for Tiger to win some more majors also.
Agree will set the guys anchoring way back and should thin the field at the top.

This is going to rear its head in our match this afternoon!. LOL Can't wait. I know two of my boys who'll be throwing a yip festival.
Thisis an overreation, and they will get sued. I dont use a long putter, but there is no advantage or more people would do it.
there is a huge advantage. look up Ernie Els' quotes on it.
As long as they don't ban the Czervik Putter, I'm good.
Yea, Rule 14-1b is a proposal and if enacted it would take effect in january, 2016.
Interesting how this will play out among the tours.
My man Freddy Couples found new life with the long putter....
We shall see.......
A pga ban won't affect club play.
I think it is a terrible rule. I have never putted with a putter longer than standard length (no homo). I don't think it presents a huge advantage. Out of the top 20 players in the world, 5 of them use a longer putter. Out of the top 5 players in the world, none of them use a longer putter. If golf really wanted to protect the integrity of the game, they would change the golf ball. 20 years ago there wasn't a player on tour that hit it longer than 285 on average. 12 years ago, John Daly was the only player that averaged over 300 yards. Last year, 22 players averaged drives of over 300 yards. This is making alot of great courses obsolete. If they are actually looking to protect the integrity of the game they will start with the golf ball and the driver. The putter isn't the problem.
Maybe this will be back in vogue for the yippers...
