Keegan Bradley: Fans shouted their support at TPC Scottsdale.
AFTER HIS ROUND at the Waste Manage- ment Phoenix Open Friday, Keegan Bradley suggested the common golfer is opposed to the USGA’s proposed anchoring ban, say-
ing fans at the TPC Scottsdale’s raucous 16th hole were very
supportive. “[They] have been yelling to me about the belly
putter, how much they love it,” he said. “Maybe the USGA
needs to go hang out on the 16th hole.” Perhaps, but a recent
survey of 1,766 “serious golfers” by Golf Datatech paints a
different picture. See the highlights at left. —Mike Stachura
