ACCULOCK COULD BE ANSWER TO ANCHORING
Golfers seeking something to substitute their long putter when the new anchoring rule takes effect on January 1, should look closely at the unusual BioMech putter which is now available in South Africa at a price of R4 000. The shaft of the blue square-shape mallet connects to the putter at the rear of the head. The putter, launched at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show, combines biology and mechanics through the AccuLock Ace system, and is being used on the PGA Tour by South African Tim Clark, Heath Slocum, Kevin Stadler and Bo van Pelt, who were all looking for a long putter replacement. To use it, you set up close to the ball, and look straight down at a ball-shaped hole in the middle of the putter head. The shaft is angled so that it easily locks against the forearm, stabilising the hands, arms and shoulders, because it promotes a core-driven stroke rather than one controlled by the hands and arms. This method will remain legal.
