RIP Belly Putters?

Webb Simpson and his belly putter winning the 2012 US Open

It looks like the R&A and the USGA will announce the fate of the belly or anchored putters in a teleconference tomorrow morning.  The golf purest and Tiger Woods (HATE THEM) have argued that being able to anchor your putter to your belly makes hitting clutch putts easier and have been very vocal in asking for their removal.  There have been belly putters used for years, but since 3 of the last 5 majors have been won by golfers using the blasphemous putting stroke the USGA and R&A have taken notice.  Winner of the 2011 PGA Championship Keegan Bradley has already said he would fight a ban before he would switch to a contemporary putter.
