Stricker says he can see tour ignoring putter ban
“It wasn’t unanimous, but I would say a vast majority were not in favor of the ban,” Ogilvie said.
Jim Furyk, another player on the board, told Golfweek magazine that he disagrees with the rule, though going away from the USGA would open “a whole new can of worms in the world of golf.”
“Every sport that I can think of has different sets of rules for different abilities and different styles, and I realize that’s not what the USGA wants to do,” Furyk said. “I just really don’t understand why.”
Stricker said information over the last few months has changed his view. He still doesn’t like long putters, but doesn’t like the idea of a rule _ not after the long putters have been allowed for the last 40 years.
“I think the timing of it is poor,” he said. “We’re at a point in time in the game of golf that we’re trying to keep players, lure players into playing the game, and a majority of the players feel that it only puts a negative spin on that, maybe detracts the local guy, the club member, the public player, whoever, from playing at times.
“It’s a tough subject,” he said. “It’s going to be interesting to see how it all plays out. … I guess we’re just going to have to sit back and see what the USGA is going to do.”
