    In the end the bombers bombed. As expected It was a lot of steady eddies left at the end, none more so than Webb and his anchored forearm putter.

    Not to be a hater, but again, it is harder to value those big putts as much when guys use the Kuch method.

    Chamblee made a whole argument against this anchored method earlier in the week. And it’s no surprise a guy using the Method came out of what ended up being a putting challenge.

    The usga must be cringing knowing someday they may have to tell all the former belly anchored guys they cannot forearm anchor anymore either. What’s clear is anchors, including the forearm, makes becoming a world class putter easier. No better example than Webb doing it in no time, really.

    Also, all week everyone celebrated Love3s team shaving this great course like a poodle. It is hard to notice with so many trees around still but they cut a lot of critical branches, making it a lot easier for bombers and for players to score low all the way thru Sunday. It’s unfortunate but between over eager trimmers and forearm anchors Harbor Town got Sampsoned this week.

        Yea…for now.
        They may want to wait to fix this until Webb Simpson turns 50.

        Maybe Add Keegan but we haven’t seen or heard of Bradley Regardless of putting style.
