I samband med visningen av nya P790 och de nya MG2-wedgarna (samt sanslöst fräcka Hi-Toe Big Foot) fick jag också se lite nya putters. TaylorMade har ju haft stora framgångar med sina många versioner av Spider, men här är det vanliga blad och mallets det handlar om.

De var lite lätta i huvudet för min smak (gillar tunga putters), men relativt välbalanserade ändå och det fanns inget att anmärka på när det gäller känslan. Kanske för att de försetts med en uppdaterad version av TaylorMades utmärkta Pure Roll-insert.

Med viktskruvar i botten finns också möjlighet till specialanpassning och där skulle man gärna labba lite med olika huvuden och vikter om man fick tillgång till en "godispåse". För den som är sugen kostar de 2699 (paket med viktskruvar kanske kan gå att beställa i framtiden, men annars får man köra en custom fitting för att få rätt balans). Från 6 september kan du lägga vantarna på en egen putter i TP Patina Collection.

TaylorMade Golf Company Announces TP Patina Putter Collection
Merging Unrivaled Technology with a Classic Design, TP Patina Putter Collection features a New Pure Roll™ Insert, Premium Patina Finish and New Signature TP Screws

TaylorMade Golf Company announced today the anticipated release of the TP Patina Putter Collection, featuring a refined aesthetic paired with unparalleled craftsmanship. Comprised of seven distinct models, the TP Patina Putter Collection is a modern take on a classic design, built with TaylorMade’s patented Tour-proven Pure Roll insert. All in, TP Patina is a look from the past that plays like the future.

Delivering a rich and classic colourway to the line of TP Putters, the TP Patina Putter Collection features a naturally tarnishing patina finish. Through combining black nickel and copper properties, we created a unique reveal on the edges and sole of the putter. The TP Patina Putter Collection is built for golfers who favor a smooth and traditional putter shape still backed by unrivaled performance and technology. 

Built to optimise roll characteristics in all models of the TP Patina Putter Collection, a new and thicker 5mm aluminum Pure Roll insert is specially engineered to bring the grooves into direct contact with the ball. As compared to a solid face, the Pure Roll insert’s 45° grooves improve forward roll, helping the ball start and stay on its intended line.

This third-generation release of the TP Putter Collection features new signature TP screws that securely fasten the Pure Roll insert to the putter face. Through this process, voids and air pockets beneath the insert are minimised, creating an improved and solid feel on impact.

Soto, Juno & Del Monte
The three blade-style putters in the TP Patina Putter Collection, Soto, Juno and new Del Monte all feature a clean build with a single sightline on the back cavity. Each blade putter is complete with a Pure Roll insert designed to give golfers optimised stability, control and feel. 

As with every putter in TaylorMade’s TP Collection, the naming convention for the putters within the patina range draw on inspiration from areas, regions and landmarks of some of the world’s greatest golf destinations and historic courses. 

  • Soto – The Soto provides a smooth appearance at address with 47° of toe hang and a full shaft offset.
  • Juno – Shaped with squared contours, Juno’s appearance is complete with 36° of toe hang and a full shaft offset.
  • Del Monte – With a single sightline on the back cavity, the Del Monte putter features a slight toe hang of 8°and a firm feeling on impact.

Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3 & DuPage
The mallet options for the Patina Collection are equally as impressive with four options including the Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3 and the new DuPage. Each mallet putter is constructed with a Pure Roll insert designed to give golfers optimised stability, control and feel.

  • Ardmore 1 – A face-balanced mallet designed with dual cavity sightlines and one top sightline. Ardmore 1 features a full shaft offset intended to promote a linear stroke.
  • Ardmore 2 –With double cavity sightlines for a straight back, straight through stroke, Ardmore 2 features a face balanced toe hang and single bend TM hosel.
  • Ardmore 3 – Incorporating a 42° toe hang on a short slant hosel with a single cavity sightline, the Ardmore 3 completes the Ardmore line up.
  • DuPage – The all new DuPage mallet putter completes the TP Patina Putter collection with a new take on the traditional mallet design incorporating a single bend, face balanced design.

Available at retail beginning September 6, entire TP Patina Collection is available in 34” and 35” lengths in both RH & LH models. Each putter comes equipped stock with a KBS CT Taper Stepless Chrome Putter shaft and a Super Stroke Pistol GT 1.0 grip.
