Golf research has shown that golf participation is dwindling, mainly in the United States and Europe through cost and time it takes to play. Davis does not believe outlawing the anchored putting stroke will further decrease the number of golfers.
“We really feel strongly that it’s a false premise,” he said. “The game has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years. For 570 years, people figured out how to play without anchoring. Now they can’t do without it?
“It’s not, ‘How can we make it harder?’ or ‘How can we make it easier?’ By doing this, we feel this clarifies the game,” he said. “This is about the future of the game.”
