  1. I know this one has been hacked and re-hacked, but another blow might not be a bad idea. I'm a long putter fan. It started maybe 10 years ago when I three-putted seven times during the finals of a club championship match. Undeniable case of the "yips." This is not a review of a single long putter, because I've got about five of them and the first one I bought, for $9.99, is in a friend's bag and I'll probably never get it back. But I think we need to keep reminding people, even a few in high places, that the long putter is not dead. Sort of like Bernhard Langer, who might have given up and died a couple of times but didn't, thanks to his long putter. This was prompted by comments last week during the U. S. Open. First, by Paul Azinger, one of my favorite commentators when he makes one of his rare appearances, who referred straight out that the long putter had been "outlawed." Someone else, I think maybe Curtis Strange but I'm not sure, also said the long putter had been "outlawed." I know these guys have lots to talk about on air, and maybe that's the way they refer to long putters in private conversations, but they need to be careful and let people know that it's the anchored stroke that has been outlawed, not the putter. If not, they're doing a disservice to people like me, and Bernhard, who have been and could be helped to enjoy the game more. I could go on about how to most effectively use the long putter (in my opinion), but this is probably too long already. So, that makes me feel better. Golfers, don't throw away those old long putters. Manufacturers, keep making them, and make them even better.
