Colin Montgomerie: PGA Tour's decision is "very dangerous"
By mustang6560 on 2/25/13
In response to the PGA Tour's response to the USGA and R&A proposed ban on anchoring, Colin Montgomerie voiced a very real, very legitimate concern.
Montgomerie told Sky Sports: "The R&A and USGA have served the game of golf for a long, long time and long may that continue. But this has opened up a whole new can of worms.

"It's a very dangerous situation we are getting ourselves into and I do hope they can sort this out very, very quickly. I thought, as we all did, that the rules of golf were set by the R&A and the USGA.

"Tim Finchem has obviously thought otherwise. Whether the European Tour think that or not has to be debated too."
As I said earlier, I hope the USGA and R&A aren't quick to act with their response to the response. We don't need to get into a situation where the professional tours are the judge, jury, and executioner. We need checks and balances. There should be a group who creates the rules and a group who enforces the rules.

PGAT decided nothing. They simply announced they are opposed to it. Lots of people of oppose lots of things, it doesn't necessarily amount to anything.

I think that haircut is very dangerous... who cares? If they go ahead with the ban, people will just find another loop hole, another stroke, another grip... anything to get themselves more comfortable on the green. If they don't, well then I think maybe they will have finally started listening to the masses.

Now about those wedge grooves...
joe jones says:
In the body of his interview he said it was his opinion that they should ban the long putter not the anchoring aspect. So as I interpret it he disagrees with the ruling bodies. His comments have no merit and should be ignored.
