• Six new putter models released in TaylorMade TP range
• Each putter has TaylorMade’s new Pure Roll insert
• All models will be available in either March/April 2017
Landing in March/April 2017, there are six new models, five of which feature a 303 stainless steel construction for solid feel and skim-milled machining for a great look and an improved performance.
Each TP putter has TaylorMade’s new Pure Roll insert
Inspired by world top two Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, each TaylorMade TP putter has the brand’s new Pure Roll insert for an improved roll and reduced skidding across various surfaces.
With 45-degree grooves, the inserts make direct and active contact with the ball during impact and serve, in part, to soften the insert’s structure – hugely benefitting performance.
The first two of the six TaylorMade TP models are Juno (above) and Soto, classically designed blade putters with heel-toe weighting for optimized balance, control and feel.
Those eagle-eyed viewers at the Ryder Cup would have noticed that Sergio Garcia was using a Juno model, which features longer squared off contours with a single sightline on top. The pads also have fine linear machine lines.
The Soto (above), meanwhile, retains short, rounded and soft edges with a single sightline in the back cavity. Each blade-style model comes stock with a plumber’s neck hosel. The Soto hosel has a classic scalloped hosel for a slightly lighter weight. Both heads feature two 10g weights in the sole.
Mullen and Berwick make up the classic mallet tour proven models of the TaylorMade TP Collection.
Mullen (above) boasts a more compact mallet design with two sightlines on the back cavity and a short “S” hosel that allows for a slight toe hang of 38 degrees.
Berwick (above) is the more traditional rounded mallet shape with a thicker topline and single sightline on the back cavity. Berwick also includes a slight step-down cavity and a single bend ¾ shaft offset to create a face-balanced hang.
Both mallets feature two 5g weights in the sole.
There are no pictures of the Ardmore and Chaska TaylorMade TP models yet, but they will also be arriving in 2017.
Both mid-size mallets, Ardmore features a deep cavity with dual sightlines to improve balance and alignment. The Ardmore is 355g and cast from 303 stainless steel for a larger MOI. The shaft is a double bend with ¾ offset, face balanced with 3.5 degrees loft.
The Tour proven Chaska revisits the design of the original TaylorMade Corza Ghost with the familiar circular alignment aid in the back of the putter and three sightlines on top.
The Chaska is also face balanced and has ¾ shaft offset. Both mid-size mallets include the precise milling and Pure Roll insert associated with the TaylorMade TP Collection of putters.
