You can use any club, anywhere. You could hit a putter off the tee or out of a bunker even though you probably wouldn't. Likewise you can use any club on the green, some players even pitch the difficult pin positions.

Can a conventionsl putter anchored against any part of body like a Belly putter?

Although it's controversial at the moment, the rules of golf do not prohibit anchoring your putter against any part of your body. Keegan Bradley was the first winner of a Major championship with a belly putter, and although a long putter (anchored in either the sternum or under the chin) has not yet won a Major, they have come close. Adam Scott finished tied second for the 2011 Masters with his sternum-anchored putter. You ask about a conventional putter and anchoring that to a part of your body and you may be interested to look at Bernhard Langer who won the 1993 Masters anchoring and cured his yips by anchoring the top of the putter shaft onto his left arm with his right hand. So, in summary, anchoring the putter to any part of your body is for the moment legal under the R & A and USGA rules.

You had gay sex and your only 13?

What you did was illegal, as 13 yr olds are minors, and, therefore, are not old enough to consent to anything legally. If either of you were 18 or older, the oldest one would be liable for rape, as, though you might have consented to that, you are not old enough to consent legally, which is illegal. Answer: It don't matter if you're gay or not. You had SEX. That's illegal. It would also be a statuory rape if the person was 18, or in some cases, 17. A: Underage sex by itself is not illegal, as long as both people are close enough in age and there was no force used. But depending on the difference in ages or if one is over a certain age (it all varies by state) then it could be illegal, and the older one could be prosecuted. IF it ever ended up in court. But if its consentual and you are close to each other in age, then the law should never be involved. Just don't be stupid enough to do something in a public place or get caught by your parents.
