Is it not widely considered that long putters take some skill out of putting? You are basically leaning the putter against something and going back and forward with your motion.
Im no expert but I think everyone should be made putt with their hands, if that makes sense and the more I hear about it I think they will be banned sooner rather than later.
Edit:- Please correct me if I am wrong of course because I have never once used a long/belly putter due to the embarrassment factor
