USGA is a joke. Imposing the anchoring rule on amateurs at a time when golf needs participation makes no sense.
They flubbed this as badly as they did the incorrect ruling regarding Dustin Johnson in the US Open

I too have resigned my USGA Membership and will never spend one penny in support of this misguided / mismanaged group.

Applying rules like this to pros playing for big money is fine—applying it to old duffers like me is total B.S.  I resigned my USGA membership when the new rule was announced and will not use a long putter in any “official competition” but I think the new rule is one of the many reasons why golf and golf courses are dying out.  Total insanity after allowing the long putters for so many years—5 or 6 of them now reside in my garage and will remain there until I am dead and gone.
