At Cleveland Golf, we acknowledge and respect the right of the USGA and the R&A to prohibit the anchored putting stroke. It is vital to the future of golf that players of all skill levels can enjoy the game; that includes the ability to use equipment that helps them play to the best of their abilities.
In wake of this ruling, we feel that it is the perfect time to bring attention to our “Almost Belly” putter, which has shown great success over the past 2 years. “Almost Belly” putters promote similar benefits to that of the “Belly” putter: they add stability and control to the stroke through a counter-balanced design. However, they are made in a shorter 39-inch length to eliminate the need for anchoring to the body.
We understand all of our current products can be used in line with the USGA ruling by just modifying the stroke and removing contact with the body. Although this will mean change for the players wishing to comply within the rules, there are some simple adjustments a player can make so the putter isn’t anchored. We have proven this with the Almost Belly putter, and we expect to see continued success in this category.
