SOUTHAMPTON, Bermuda (AP) -- U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson says he isn't worried about a potential rule that would outlaw long putters. He says he already is practicing with a conventional putter when he's at home. The U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf Club are discussing whether to ban putters that are anchored to the belly or the chest. Three of the last five major champions have used long putters - Simpson, British Open champion Ernie Els and PGA champion Keegan Bradley. Simpson and Bradley are in Bermuda for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Simpson says a ban on long putters will make it tough on a lot of golfers, and not just tour professionals. He also says PGA Tour statistics show that the best putters are not using the longer clubs.
