Prediction: PGA Tour Will Wind Up Implementing Anchoring Ban

By February 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Last week on Twitter I wrote that I expected the PGA Tour will ultimately implement the anchoring ban, even though right now the tour says it opposes proposed Rule 14-1b.

Two days ago, writing about PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem's announcement of the tour's opposition, I added: "My guess today is that the governing bodies will move ahead and implement the rule and that, ultimately, the PGA Tour will go along with it."

But in neither case did I explain why I felt that way. And, it turns out, today I feel even more strongly that the PGA Tour will ultimately go along with the USGA and R&A ban on anchoring, because we now know the European Tour won't support the PGA Tour's position.

So it's time to explain my prediction. Just why do I believe the PGA Tour will wind up giving in? I explain in this commentary.
