Golf's rulesmakers have scheduled a morning teleconference in which the U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf Club are expected to restrict the practice of anchoring a club to a part of the body other than the hands.
It's a practice that goes back nearly a century, but was considered a novelty until players began regularly winning tournaments – and majors – with a longer wand they stuck into their belly or chest.
