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.

Then there is left hand low, which is obviously left hand below your right. There is also the interlocking grip which is basically how you hold your irons. (well how the majority do)

What is wrong with belly dancing?

absolutely nothing :] although it is not for me --- I think the majority of the stigma against belly dancing, particularly in the United States, is the overt display of the human body. Belly dancers are usually wearing very little clothing as the art of the dance involves showing isolated muscle movements. Because of this lack of garb, Americans seem to automatically categorize belly dancing as lewd and sexual and, therefore, against true Christian morals.
