The AJGA sent out a statement regarding the USGA and R&A’s adoption of Rule 14-1B. It is as follows:

“The American Junior Golf Association, its Board of Directors, full- and part-time staff and membership of nearly 6,000 of golf’s next generation recognize the Rules-making authority of the USGA to govern the game of golf in America. By recognizing this authority, the AJGA has always, and will continue to, strictly follow any Rule change deemed necessary by the USGA.”

In 2012, the AJGA collected data from June 18 to October 30 from juniors on the anchored putting stroke. The data showed that 98.1% (5,650 players) of players did not use an anchoring stroke, while only 1.9% (111 players) of them did. These numbers were based 5,761 juniors that played during that time, although some players may have been counted twice.
