Could the anchoring debate overshadow the year's first major? If Adam Scott, who's in the field this week at the Tampa Bay Championship, were to win at Augusta, the ramifications could grow exponentially, writes ESPN.com's Farrell Evans.
Could the PGA Tour go against a long-standing tradition of following the Rules of Golf when it comes to the anchor ban? Growing sentiment seems to point toward a possible rift, ESPN.com's Bob Harig writes.
When the United States Golf Association and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club proposed banning the anchoring of strokes on Nov. 28, they said there would be a 90-day comment period. At least one PGA Tour player is taking them up on their offer.
Carl Pettersson says the proposed rule to ban the anchored stroke for long putters feels like a "witch hunt," and that golf's governing bodies were only reacting to three of the last five major champions using a belly putter.
