It was noted on the sports pages this morning that the PGA Tour became the last major governing body in the world of golf to agree to ban the "belly putter", or more accurately the "anchored putting stroke", as a part of the formal Rules of Golf. The ban will take effect on January 1, 2016.
While the PGA Tour was not as enthusiastic about this rule change as was the USGA and the Royal and Ancient, they agreed to go along because, and this is from Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press, "the common ground by all sides was the importance of golf being played under one fundamental set of rules, as has been the case for hundreds of years."
Hey, National (Baseball) League, are you listening out there????? The importance of the game being played under one fundamental set of rules. Take note, please.
