Colt Knost to donate belly putter to USGA museum

Colt-Knost

Colt Knost realizes his belly putter is about to go the way of the dinosaur, so why not have it preserved preemptively in a museum?

That's what Knost suggested in a tweet on Wednesday when he said he would be donating some artifacts to the USGA museum in New Jersey. You see, Knost won three USGA events in 2007 -- the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Amateur Public Links and was a member of the winning Walker Cup team. In all three of those, he used a belly putter.

With Rule 14-1b and its associated ban of the anchored stroke set to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2016, the USGA might not be happy to see this land at their Far Hills headquarters.

Knost no longer uses a belly putter.
