The anchoring debate is an interesting topic.  It seems people are either all for the ban or 100% against the ban.  Webb Simpson tweeted out earlier today this: '2 guys in the top 45 in strokes gained putting category (PGA Tour's most accurate putting stat) use a belly putter or long putter.'

He made some interesting comments on the state of golf. He thinks the game is in terrible shape. I have to admit I share the same views.
