Your PGA Tour Player Meeting Guest Speaker: Mike Davis

Doug Ferguson previews what figures to be a livelier than normal mandatory player meeting at Torrey Pines next week.

The USGA's Mike Davis speaking and PGA Tour brass along with PGA of America president Ted Bishop present to discuss the anchoring ban.

"From what the tour wants, this is just an educational thing and a chance to ask players any questions they have," he said. "I don't think it's designed for players to say how they feel about it."

Davis has been cautious not to speak publicly about the proposed rule during the comment period, which ends after the West Coast swing at the end of February. He even turned down an invitation to speak next week as part of a "State of the Game" panel at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

I'll be at Torrey all next week covering the Farmers Insurance Open and the surrounding hullabaloo. Should be interesting.

"I don't think it's designed for players to say how they feel about it."

Be interesting to know how that goes down....

Who cares what they think about the rule. Tour pros are a small privileged minority of the golfing world.

Yeah! Tour players are spoiled! Who cares what they think! If they decide to allow belly putters despite the USGA's ban, it doesn't matter at all!

Wow, Mike is a little chicken to not show up at the PGA Merchandise show. I guess all the PGA guys and belly and long putter manufactures telling him to jump in that alligator infested swamp would make him feel sad in the happiest place on earth.
