Tiger-belly_300The golf you play may bear little resemblance to that played by Tiger Woods, but he'd like to remind you that it is, in fact, the same game.
That's why Woods advocated for an "across the board" ban on anchored putters -- rather than a pro-only ban -- during a press conference Wednesday.
"I believe it should be the game across the board," said Woods, who has already been on record as being against belly putters. "I think it should be a global rules change."
Woods didn't only talk anchoring at the press conference, which was held to announce a new sponsor and this year's field for Woods's tournament, the World Challenge.
Eighteen players, including Woods and very nearly the entire U.S. Ryder Cup team, will take to Sherwood Country Club at the end of November. We say very nearly the entire team because of one notable exception: Phil Mickelson won't be in the field. When asked why, Tiger was terse: "It was his decision," Woods said on Mickelson's decision not to play.

Right now I'm really focused on playing in Malaysia and playing in the World Challenge. After that I'm going to sit down over my off‑season and before the new year for sure and plan out everything and see how many events I'm going to play in and whether this year was a good amount, I can play more, I can play less, travel more, travel less, and really get a good balance and really analyze what I need to do or what I want to do.
