A friendlier ghost

TaylorMade Ghost Manta Putter

As a general trend to more forgiving putter options for weekend warriors seemed to validate the putter’s size and complexity, last year’s TaylorMade Ghost Spider putter was an instant hit. But many golfers weren’t sold. Some felt the Ghost Spider was too massive or simply too hard on the eyes. Never being one to miss…

Length matters

The next iteration of belly putter enhancement comes to us from PING in the Nome 405 Adjustable Belly Putter ($300). Our review continues after the…

For once, it's good to be two-faced

Odyssey Flip Face Putter

The one true constant of playing various courses — outside of being scoffed at by the regulars — is that the greens will be totally different. Fast or slow, firm or soft, mowed tight or recently aerated. Finding consistent putting surfaces can drive you mad. Owning two putters seems ludicrous, but given the variability in…

Nike Method Concept Putter

This is not the first, uh how should we put this, uniquely shaped putter we’ve reviewed from Nike Golf. And, while others may scoff at Nike for some truly bizarre shapes, we commend their commitment to pushing the proverbial performance envelope. The Method Concept Putter ($240) was born from an exercise of turning the club…

Because You Can't Hit What You Can't See

Odyssey White Ice 2-Ball Putter

When one thinks about innovation in golf design, it’s hard not to conjure the infamous shape of the Odyssey 2-Ball. When it was first released back in 2001, the 2-Ball’s aesthetics seemed decidedly funky. However, it didn’t take golfers long to figure out the most important thing about the putter and its revolutionary alignment-friendly design…

Less Is Not Necessarily More

Heavy Putter Mid-Weight Series | Boccieri Golf

A putter is an infinitely personal thing. That’s why you see such a disparity in the equipment used by even the best players in the world; some wield mallets, others blades, and some prefer scoop-backs. Some putters are set up as standard-length, others belly putters, and some (crazy) as long putters. This all serves as…

Professionally Designed, Personally Customized, Perfectly Fitted

Slighter Golf

I poured my first putt in from ten feet. Fluke? Perhaps. That is, until I buried the next one from two feet further out. So it would be a bit of an understatement to say I was totally sold on the putter making abilities of Slighter Golf. Putters are as individual as a man’s golf…

TaylorMade Monza Rossa Spider Putter

[click on image to enlarge] 4-time Open winner Bobby Locke famously, and rightly, stated that you, “drive for show, putt for dough.” Nothing ruins a good round or my patience more than dismal putting. Blowing a two-footer or three putting for a bogey will crush your score, and your will to live for that matter….

Musty Putter | Custom Wood Putter

A custom putter is what we like to call a compulsory luxury. It costs a lot and you need it. One could argue the same qualifies for an Aston Martin DB7, but we prefer skipping the semantics. Musty Putters are unique, and by unique we mean that no one you currently know has one in…

The new putter from TaylorMade basically breaks down putting to this… it’s all about the launch.
