USGA's Davis: Anchoring Decision Still Coming This Spring!

Mike Davis was on Morning Drive Monday and had no update on a specific proposed anchoring ban announcement following the 90-day "great process" comment period. Instead, he's sticking with the original "spring" assessment.

Ryan Lavner points out that the last day of spring is June 20.

But as he mentioned in November and reiterated again Monday on Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive,” Davis said the governing bodies (USGA and R&A) hope to make an official announcement sometime this spring, though no specific date was mentioned.

I watched the appearance and Davis suggested that both the R&A and USGA are still assimilating all of the comments. He didn't seem particularly thrilled about the question either.

By the way, love the coordination between the USGA and R&A to have Open media days on the same day. Or maybe it was on purpose to talk about an anchoring ban that was to have been announced already?
