Rory will be just fine, but changing equipment is a big deal. The driver and the putter are the two most important, obviously. The driver should be a pretty easy switch, but the putter could really hold him back. Tiger is still searching for that perfect putter after putting with the Cameron for so long.
I've gone back and forth on this anchor ban. At heart, you shouldn't be able to anchor a club. But, it's been around for so long and the best putters don't use them. Also, as a PGA Pro, making the game easier for golfers is a good thing. The game is way too difficult for so many.
The Match Play tournament stinks. Watching the first two rounds is really exciting, but the last few rounds are so boring. I'm really not sure how it's fixed, but the drama is gone come Sunday. Playing in match play tournaments is a lot fun, and it's cool that the Tour has an event like this, but watching it is a whole different story. I didn't even watch the final match yesterday.
