Personally, I like the ban on anchoring. I almost never see anyone using a belly putter or a long putter when I am playing. Whether it helps or not, it's not in the spirit of the game. They should have done this long ago, but better late than never. Change is good up to a point, but you have to be very careful. It very easy to go too far and change things for the worst, permanently. Slots in clubs is in the same vein, shouldn't happen. Drivers should have been capped at about 360cc, that was big enough. But that's another story.
I say this with knowledge learned from my years of bowling. When I bowled in the 70's and 80's it took skill to be a high lever player that could hook the ball and score well. Then with changes to lane conditions and the introduction of reactive resin bowling balls, you could buy a hook and couldn't miss the pocket. Scores skyrocketed and took the challenge out of the game. 300 games and ridiculously high scores were the norm, completely ruining the history and legend of the game. Participation has plummeted at the high level of the sport along with casual play as well. This could easily happen to the game of golf as well, I am happy that the USGA and the R&A are at least trying. If you keep making the game too easy, no one is going to care anymore. And that is trouble!
