Hardly A Shocker: Tom Watson Reiterates His Longheld Views On Putter Anchoring

Brent Read, reporting on a Tom Watson conference call to promote his appearance in the Australian Open next month, repeated his longheld views that anchoring provides a distinct advantage and that he supports the governing bodies.

"There are definite advantages with it because you take it back and basically the pendulum and weight of the putter will take it through the impact area," Watson said.

"There is really no chance to jerk it too much if you keep it pretty still."
