PGA Championship: 32 percent of the field used belly or long putters

As the debate rages on about the belly and long putter, as well as the legality of the anchored stroke, the popularity of the putters continue to grow.

Of the 156 players in the field at the PGA Championship, 50 of them had a belly or long putter, according to Golf Digest. That's 32.1 percent of the field.

By comparison, 29.7 percent of the field used them at the Open Championship.

Not convinced? Perhaps a tweet sent by Aron Price could be entered into evidence as Exhibit A for those who want the stroke banned.

Price used a belly putter for the first time this week on the Web.com Tour's Price Cutter Charity Championship.
