Garrigus On USGA: "Amateurs making rules for the professional game."

Michael Collins talked to Robert Garrigus about the anchoring ban and last weeks players meeting.

The PGA Tour player who has used every length putter imaginable says he asked USGA Executive Director Mike Davis about the make up of the current Executive Committee and how many have played tournament golf.

"Zero," Garrigus said Davis told him.

The 35-year-old winner of the 2010 Children's Miracle Network Classic didn't stop there.

"They are amateurs who are making rules for a professional game," Garrigus said.

"It's unfortunate that they are trying to ban it because the guys that are using the putter are good dudes. They're not cheating. It's within the rules right now. And it's never an advantage."
In his career, Garrigus has used a long putter anchored against his body.

"It's just unfortunate they've got to try to say that it's overwhelming the game. And I think that's ridiculous."
