177653031 The USGA and R&A have banned anchored putting -- effective Jan. 1, 2016 -- but Bubba Watson said that golf's ruling bodies still need to address the biggest problem in the game: slow play.

"Slow play is a problem on the PGA Tour, and I think that's our biggest concern."
"We are worried about putters and golf balls and all these things, but I think we should be more concerned about slow play and speeding the game up, not just for pros but for amateur golfers, as well," Watson said. "Nobody wants to play a game that takes five and a half hours to play. We want everybody to be able to play and go a lot faster."
According to Reuters

"Nobody wants to see a young kid, a young player get that penalty. That penalty is not a fun penalty to get... happened to be Asian players, but I think the youngsters can learn from that."
"I am happy with my game. Obviously you want to produce better scores. You want to win," he said. "I haven't won yet, but I'm playing well. I feel like I'm playing good."
