Adam Scott was known as a mediocre putter until he went to the long putter.
And to be honest, it did offend my sense of tradition some to see an anchored putter win the Masters.
But this completes the Grand Slam for anchored putters, that's why I think the ban will happen next year.
2016 and it only affects US and Brittish open as long as PGA tour opposes it which they have said they do oppose. It's stupid really since long putters have been around for 30 plus years.
