Title: Strauss: Putter ruling could create split in golf
Description: The rules-making powers that be in professional golf formally announced Tuesday morning they will spend the next 2½ years attempting to shove toothpaste back into the tube. Of course, the United States Golf Association and the Royal & Ancient put it a bit differently. For the “betterment of golf,” players no longer will be able to employ an anchored putter as of January 2016. This means that players such as two-time Masters winner Bernhard Langer who “anchor” the butt of the club against their chin, sternum, belly or other body part in between are out of luck.
