A “stroke’’ is the forward movement of the club made with the intention of striking at and moving the ball,
It seems to me:
The decision has already been made (I believe it was made this past winter)
It is all about anchoring, it will be declared to not be consistent with the definition of "a stroke"
It will be announced after the US PGA at Kiawah that anchoring is forbidden
The only question is date of institution of the change? For elite competition? For All golfers.
Start of 2013?
Before Masters 2013?
Start of 2014?
Still congrats to Els despite the early inaccurate coronation by someone at the theopen.com website's coronation of Scott as posted yesterday. Condolences to all in OZ staying up all night just to be gutted, I feel for you.
Els is specifically working to get away from the anchored putter, hopefully he can look back soon and say he was literally using a crutch. Here's to Els and a career Grand Slam.
