Then last fall, Ernie said, "Guys can have a laugh at me, that's fine. I've done it to them. As long as it's legal, I'll keep cheating like the rest of them." That was upsetting not just to me but probably also to all the players who use alternative putters.
Ernie, of course, is entitled to his opinion. Some of my best friends think anchoring should be banned. Point is, I'm trying to put food on my table just like everyone else, and I'm doing it the best way I know how. Until I'm told that I can't use it anymore, that'll be with a long putter in my bag.
