The belly putter

I have been listening to people like Gary Player and other notables and most of them think that it should be outlawed. They feel anchoring it to your body takes out the nerves and nerves are one of the biggest factors in golf. Comment golfers..

1. I agree with Player

And I am glad he brought it up. It seems to be a taboo subject on golf telecasts. Player did good, they shoud be banned and an asterisk be placed by the name of any Major winners who used one.

2. I'm not a golfer

but I agree. Though I don't think they should retroactively add asterisks if they do ban belly putters. It is about what is against the rules at the time.

Though there will always be a mental asterisk to belly putters who won in my mind.

3. I'm not sure.

When I have an attack of "nerves" it generally manifests first in my belly. Maybe they should take away porta-potties instead.

4. I think if they were such an advantage everyone would use them

Nerves? Those are an issue on every shot.

Putting comes from practice. No club ever invented helps you read a green or gives you a feel for distance.

Except, maybe, this one:

8. I think they should allow belly putters... but only if they have square grooves. n/t
