@ArronOberholser: "I know belly and long putters will never be banned, but if they were there would be some dudes looking for work." -- PGA Tour player Arron Oerholser

Tim Beckwith, PGA
@TimBeckwithPGA   Victories with belly & long putters seem to be adding up. They make that part of game easier, yet still one of the hardest things in sports.

Arron Oberholser
@ArronOberholser   No offense, but for me, the only thing a belly putter is good for is beating rabid animals.

@ArronOberholser   I know belly and long putters will never be banned, but if they were there would be some dudes looking for work.

Jesse Struebing, PGA
@Jstruebs   Really bothers me that club companies push awful performing SW's that are the same design as other irons. wedges are tools not 5 irons!

@Jstruebs   Wedges like that are not versatile. Can't be open up, leading edge is to high of ground. Bounce is aweful, can't get height on a tight lie.

John Graham, PGA
@JohnGrahamGolf   Why all the whining about belly and long putters? Where's the mechanical advantage? Because it is anchored in? Still takes great skill.
