“As long as it’s legal, I’ll keep cheating like the rest of them.”

That's Ernie Els talking about the belly putter, as quoted by Doug Ferguson in this week's AP notes column.

It's fascinating that the belly putter is perceived as cheating that should be outlawed by some who use them (like Els) or potential future converts (Joe Ogilvie).

Doesn't that almost require the governing bodies to take another look if that is the perception of some who use the putters?
