I just dont see it making a huge comeback but I could be wrong. Phil is the 2nd most popular American golfer.
I agree about the Kuchar-style putters. I think quite a few guys will use them. I just saw that Callaway has a new version of one of them. I expect all companies to start rolling them out.
With Phil's success with the claw, and Sergio for that matter, I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few guys go that route. To me, it's much easier than the Kuchar-style putting action.
