At all of the courses in this area -18 is very possible and although difficult, wouldn't require any shots that all the touring pros couldn't make. So you could just take 10 of the top guys and have...

At BG I threw a Tomahawk with an Orc. One round it stuck near the basket, the other round it rolled away.

Doss, Emac and Anthon (spin putters) don't have to step through their putts to keep them on-line and straight at the chains from 30'. It's Shultz, Brinster and Wysocki (straddle putters) who have to...

This is a fun side discussion, and so I will continue it:

I think those that might see the most benefit are straddle putters. It seems to me to be the hardest popular style to get to the basket without falling forward in that 25'-35' range.

Any straddle...

I have to disagree with you on the "CLEARLY".

Many of the best jump putters (i.e. nikko) use a loft putt as is, so I don't see that changing. There are positives and negatives to all putting...

You are probably right, but I still do not understand why this is a bad thing.

Brad Harris,

In an effort to make putting near the basket harder, can you think of any other rules we could add?

Right now I agree with Chuck that the limitation of showing balance isn't really...

Mashnut,

I'm interested if you are in favor of the 10m circle rule? If so, what are the main benefits of it?

I'm not saying these are the best reasons, just some bonus reasons.

If you were writing up the 10m circle rule today and wanting to get it passed, what are the best reasons for it?

It won't bother me if people decide to jump, or stand still. They may choose whatever they find more accurate. I'm just saying that in basketball, players have proven over time that they would rather...

I very much see your point.

I just think that after an initial "break-in" period of people wondering why there is no 10m circle anymore, and a period of people "testing" how many inches they can...

A shot like that is already easier at 35', why not allow it at 28', or 14', or 4'?

I guess I just don't see a good enough reason to eliminate people's options arbitrarily at 10 meters.

Simplify the rule book if you can.

I bet you already reach out and drop in 4' putts, so we're talking about 4' of difference here.
