    Off The Tow got a reaction from excourse in Arm Lock Putting Should Be Illegal   
    Many have been saying using armlock should be illegal because the locking prevents face rotation.
    The last time I checked, my forearms (radius and ulna) can rotate freely from the elbow with or without a putter attached.

    There is a fundamental difference between anchoring to the chest and anchoring to the belly and the armlock method. Anchoring to the chest or belly creates a fixed pivot point on the body. Armlocking does not.

    Okay,  I'll bite.    Everyone has opinions on this and that is fine.   You may not like armlock,  but it isn't cheating and you may want to make it illegal.
    The rules are about anchoring the end of the club to a pivot point (belly, chest).  In those strokes the putter rotated around that anchor point.   In armlock the pivot point is the shoulder.   The end of the clubs isn't anchored using the definition of the tour.    Since anchor means to secure firmly in position we should just make putting one handed.   By using two hands you are anchoring the putter.
