Els hopeful of no ban on belly putters



With only a few weeks left before a decision on long putters, Open champion Ernie Els hopes golf officials change their minds.

Els used a belly putter when he won at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. That made him the third champion in the last five majors to use a putter anchored to the body.

The US Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf Club have proposed a new rule that would outlaw clubs being anchored to the body. The 90-day comment period on the new rule is over at the end of this month.

Els says he hasn't seen any data that would lead to a ban on the putting stroke. He also doesn't think it was an issue until he and Webb Simpson won consecutive majors.
