WSJ: Anchoring "Decision" To Come Wednesday

John Paul Newport reports that as the R&A jacks around with the Old Course, the belly putter/anchoring "decision" will come Wednesday.

The announcement figures to be anti-climactic considering that, (A) we already have a good sense anchoring will be banned based on various reports this fall, and (B) the entire thing seems rather petty when the shrine to the game is deemed unworthy to handle the technology the same governing bodies tremble in their loafters at the mere thought of regulating, and therefore undergoes historic, unnecessary changes the same week the announcement comes out.

The prioritization of issues and actions by the USGA and R&A remains woefully out of sync with basic common sense.
