FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Tim Clark considers his future in golf uncertain now that the game's two governing bodies have outlawed the anchored putting stroke.
While the PGA Tour hasn't yet ruled on the change, Clark said Wednesday the expected decision made this week by the U.S. Golf Association and the Royal & Ancient Golf Club means the issue "is getting really serious now."
Clark, who won the 2010 Players Championship, says professionals who use the anchored stroke just want a "fair and just decision" in what will affect their careers and futures in the game.
The PGA Tour says it will now consider if the ban on anchored putting will be implemented in competitions and, if so, how it would be implemented.
The ban begins in 2016.
