"Hey, Tiger, the boys want to see you use this," Bradley said mischievously, pointing to his belly putter. "Pfft!" said Woods, "You need to cut that thing down." It was a good-natured exchange, reflecting the ribbing Bradley's been getting from his peers since golf's ruling bodies announced on Wednesday that anchoring a putter -- as he does -- likely will be outlawed in 2016.

A ban on anchors, a long way to go

The putt was meaningless because it was the final hole of a pro-am in what amounts to an 18-man exhibition at the end of the year, even though ranking points are available at the World Challenge.
