That is a likely outcome Deege.
Would be ridiculous if it ends up effectively being banned for amateurs (for whom there is a good argument that anything that makes the game more fun for people should be okay) but permitted for professionals.

Yeah i thought the wrist condition a strange argument... There's nearly no wrists involved with a putting stroke and if it's to do with his grip then as mentioned there are countless alternatives to try.
I hope the USGA and R&A tell the prima donnas to get on and learn to putt without anchoring.
There are plenty of alternative ways to hold a putter (claw grip, cross handed etc). I’m sure Tim Clark can find a way that doesn’t impede his “wrist condition”. A condition that seems to have no affect on the rest of his game.
Nine out of ten people believe that out of ten people, one person will always disagree with the other nine!

Well worded argument that. Saying it is no advantage is correct for those who are good putters. Why would someone use an anchored putter if it didn't improve their performance? It is clearly obvious that anchoring significantly assists some people but not others. Now TTR, please, just once, give me a reason why anchoring should remain? What positive influence does it have on the game?
How dumb did Johnny Miller sound when sitting next to Tim Finchem today? There is still NO evidence that anchoring makes the putting stroke easier or provides an advantage. The USGA / R & A made it clear that that is the case when announcing the 2016 changes.
I like what Finchem is saying. A voice of common sense in a sea of extreme arguments. Go the Finch!! Stick it to em mate.
