Title: PGA Tour adopts anchored putting ban Controversial strokes are out in 2016

Description: Barring something dramatic, such as a legal challenge or a change of heart from golf’s governing bodies, anybody who plays the sport starting in 2016, from beginners to PGA Tour professionals, won’t be permitted to use an anchored stroke. That was guaranteed on Monday, when the PGA Tour’s policy board voted to accept the anchor ban approved in May by the US Golf Association and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club. The PGA of America followed suit Monday, announcing that it also will abide by the new rule, which is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2016.
