I played golf yesterday and putted terribly. At times, I have poor posture with ball too close and my eye line outside the ball-target line. You get really ugly results with that. It seems that the belly putter woulkd be a real advantage to help set the proper distance to ball and the correct posture.
I remember the discussion on MG sometime back. Eric took the position that it was not an advantage because everyone could use them, blah, blah, talk louder, more blah, blah. Spoken like a true lawyer and non-golfer.
I undertstand one golfer does not gain an advantage against another, since all can legally use them today. I don't dispute that logic. It seems the discussion at USGA and R&A are really addressing the issue - Do the anchored putters provide an aid that decreases the skill involved in putting? I can see they can aid in one area; but they may be more probelmatic on other aspects. Frankly, it is not keeping me up at nights, my aching body does that.
