– The USGA must be confused. Most of us would think that “For the good of the game™” means to get people playing it, not excluding them! Today’s ban of golfers putting creatively with long and belly putters will exclude a large portion of those who truly enjoy the game. What a shame. In fact, this type of exclusion has been the norm for golf since it somehow became enclosed behind the golden gates of private country clubs. But all is not lost. The ban is a calling card for change in the sport.
RecGolf welcomes all types of recreational golf play, including the just-banned ‘anchored golf stroke.’ For the millions around the world who have invested time and money into the art of putting ‘unconventionally’
, RecGolf can be their new home. RecGolf invites anyone who wants a friendlier, less complicated, easier to understand and more fun game of golf to try their new model for the game. The focus is to Play Like A Pro!™, using scoring clubs for approach shots on every hole – just like the Pros. The USGA method of adhering to one set of tee markers, along with their arcane and arbitrary rules, will be a thing of the past.
In order to encourage and allow RecGolfers to Play Like A Pro, RecGolf offers new Rules. Simple and easy to understand; only 6 pages instead of the 208 page USGA booklet that will soon legally exclude millions of long and belly putting players. As the final piece in simplifying and upgrading the fun in golf, RecGolf provides a new handicapping method that is fairer across all levels of ability.
RecGolf: A new way to play golf with new rules and new handicaps; anchored strokes welcome!
