Very interesting. I have mixed feelings about this. Deep down, I'm happy they're enforcing this rule because, in my opinion and many others, anchoring a golf club goes against the integrity of the game.
On the flip side, as a PGA Professional and Golf 2.0 proponant for growing the game of golf, this is definitely a blow towards making the game more fun and enjoyable for the recreational golfer. Golf is very difficult, too difficult for many, so it's tough for me to see them take anything that makes the game tougher for the average folk.
Long-term, this will help the game. The real problem is it took too long to enforce. This should've been taken care of years ago before it became the animal it is today.
