CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Padraig Harrington thinks the belly putter is good for his game, even though he thinks it's bad for the game of golf.

Despite his opposition to anchoring the putter, Harrington switched to the belly putter Thursday in the Wells Fargo Championship and plans to stick with it. The belly putter didn't do him much good at Quail Hollow, where he made only one birdie in his round of 80.

Harrington is an ambassador for the Royal & Ancient, which has proposed a new rule that would ban anchored strokes. A decision by the R&A and U.S. Golf Association is expected by the end of the month.

But the three-time major winner says as long as it's within the rules, he'll do what he can to help his game.
