I can't really call it cheating because these putters are currently legal under both the R&A rules and the USGA rules. However, I do agree that I absolutely do not like seeing anyone win a major championship or any tournament using this style of putter, i.e., Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson. Frankly, I feel these putters have no place in professional golf. I always ask myself how many more tournaments Johnny Miller could have won had he had this type of putter when he developed the yips. I feel these putters carry an unfair advantage and I sincerely hope the R&A and the USGA see fit to ban them.
I never wish for a choke for anyone. I just wish for Tiger to outplay everyone. I thought it was terribly inappropriate that Bubba Watson stated to a reporter that he hoped it was really calm Sunday when he played early and then the wind and rain would start for all the leaders. Does this sound like good sportsmanship to you guys?? The idea is to outplay the other guys not win by weather default, or so I would think.
Its not cheating if the rules allow you to use it. Heck, imagine if the players 50 years ago could use the clubs that players today use...technology advances and everyone has a chance to take advantage of it.
If you dont wnat to, then that is your choice but you cant speak for everyone.
So agree, Shenlee!!! The long putters need to go...... and regards Bubba: not the first time his mouth has run loosely. Not the first time.....
Tomorrow is a new day and lots can happen. I admired Adam Scott's comment stating exactly that. He's not ready to claim the trophy after 54 holes! At 5 shots back, Tiger still has a chance. IMHO though he's got to be a little more aggressive off the tee. But then....Tiger knows best :-))
