Too hard to tell from that video, but then Mark Allen would know, sitting in his lounge room 10,000 miles away.
 
Was Mark Allen the guy who emailed the LPGA last week about Lexi? :o



At least Mark Allen, who has a common sense approach to most issues in the game,gives an honest opinion on the topic. As many other forum members have said, the technique is dubious at best. I could only see fellow "long putter" players sticking up for this method.

If by honest you mean "his opinion" then you are correct...........

Yeah, his opinion. Most golf media don't bother to comment on such issues in the game, for whatever reason.

And that is why you won't see Marco on TV. I appreciate his opinion but he was way out of line with his comments on the Masters Leading Amateur.
Surprisingly he was less candid about Sergio or Tiger at Augusta explaining they make their own rules there. Which was equally ridiculous.

You can not tell either way on the video.

I am sure the rules offical have looked at his technique and no doubt Langer's.

Mark Allen should stick to looking at himself in the mirror.

I wonder how big Mark's mirrors are to fit his entire head in one?

I don't for second doubt his ability to play the game. Was it off the whites?

I watched Hagestad and Langer....looks like anchoring to me.

Just ban putters over 40"........not hard to do.

Adam Scott has managed to adapt...they're supposed to be professionals ffs

here we go again!BAN BAN.........where do they stop?,over size club heads  super long balls,this place has done this to death in the past,for the record,i have a long putter,have had one for 25 yrs,never helped me much lol

Gives him more "reach" when taking his 2 club lengths

Turns 1 into 1 1/2 and 2 into 3
