just want to throw it out there that if putter anchoring is such an illegally good way to put.  shouldn't graphite shafts for all clubs be banned too, based on the same logic, since these shafts really make the game easier for almost  all of us?  

your thoughts please

Wah Bro Hara, if that's the case with graphite shafts, than shouldn't balls that go extra long or spin more come under scrutiny as well..... scratch

It does not necessarily help. For instance, try giving rory a piece of 30g L flex shaft meant for kids.

It would have made a difference if Rory had the choice between an X flex steel shaft and X flex graphite shaft........Suspect

C'mon guys, the PGA ruling only applies to tour pro and amateurs ... We are only social golfers ... And of course we can still continue to use non-conforming anchor putters, driver or wedge, etc. for our social games ... No one give a damn about this when it comes to social game ... Most importantly, we enjoy our game and companionship ...

In this case anything that makes the game easier should be ban?

Two handed swing is easier than one handed swing 

Maybe ban two hand swing?

Eh. if it does not affect our social game, I am sure we can let it go. Social golfers are still allowed to use whatever putters available in the market, even if it's banned. Sp there's no need to kick a fuss over it. There's no end to it.Cool

If graphite is banned, we might as well ban all 460cc driver heads. We might as well ban oversize iron heads, and the list goes on.Shocked

 Ozik Programs?

Yup. Quite impressed with graphite shafts. I always assumed that graphite shafts would be weak and wouldn't give me as much feel as steel shafts but these are pretty good!

Oh, the SFs are also just as nice but I can't afford 'em.

Mine came shafted with my irons. So, I'd need to buy SFs separately.
