Arnold Palmer is stating his case to ban the method used for long putters. And he says golf would be making a mistake to have two sets of rules. In a wide-ranging press conference Wednesday, Palmer referred to anchoring the club against the body as a ''contraption.'' He says his hope is that golf would continue to be unified under one set of rules, and those rules would ban a long putter that is ''hooked'' to the body. The PGA Tour and PGA of America are against the proposed rule that would outlaw anchored strokes. Golf's ruling bodies are expected to announce soon whether they will go ahead with it. Palmer also says he was surprised Rory McIlroy is not playing the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.
