MFAWG: What's 'unfair' about it? Please be as specific as possible.


Putting is a pendulum motion.  With traditional puttters the only control a player has is their wrists, allowing for the possibility of more lateral and horizontal movement during the swing. With chest or belly putter, you have an anchor to one end that provides considerably more stability. It's like training wheels on a bike.

MugzyBrown: WTF Indeed: Good. Chest and belly putters gave players an unfair advantage. Also they looked stupid.

I wouldn't say it was an unfair advantage since everbody could use it if they wanted.

I think them looking stupid was reason enough to ban them.


Agreed. The whole practice had the appearance of somebody finding a loophole in the rules to cheat through. And it looked really stupid.
