Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Inside The Ropes -

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.
