Statement from LPGA Chief Communications Officer Kraig Kann regarding proposed anchoring rule

“The LPGA has consistently conducted our official events in accordance with the Rules of Golf as defined by the USGA and the R&A.  We certainly respect golf’s governing bodies and their long standing desire to protect and promote the best interests of the game.

“The proposed new Rule 14-1b prohibiting ‘anchoring the club’ in making a stroke is not yet final and the LPGA will wait with interest while the USGA and R&A consider further comments and suggestions from the golf community.

“In the meantime, we will continue to discuss this proposed change with our players and provide our input and thoughts directly to the USGA and R&A.”
