JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The PGA Tour is going along with the new rule that will make it illegal in 2016 to use a long putter that is anchored to the body.

The tour made the announcement after its policy board met Monday. Commissioner Tim Finchem says while several players oppose the new rule, it was important that golf be played under one set of rules. The U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf Club are in charge of setting the rules for golf.

It will take effect when the next Rules of Golf is published on Jan. 1, 2016.
