An enhanced colour scheme, including a black finish and white tungsten heel/toe weights, which frame the ball at address.
A matte-black shaft and high-polish sole round out the look.
Tomo Bystedt, TaylorMade’s director of iron, wedge and putter creation, is sure the new look will be a hit.
“Each of these putters promote an extremely stable putting stroke.”
“The new tour-inspired cosmetic is visually stunning, while also delivering the ultimate in stability and performance,” said Bystedt.
“Each of these putters promote an extremely stable putting stroke, to help golfers deliver a consistent roll time after time.”
The new Daddy Long Legs
The Daddy Long Legs is the most stable putter in the trio, with an MOI of more than 8,500. The high-MOI design resists twisting at impact to protect ball speed on off-centre hits, promoting a reliable roll regardless of where the ball is struck on the face.
The new Spider Blade
This putter offers the stability of a mallet putter in a blade shape to promote outstanding twist-resistance and distance control on off-centre hits.
TaylorMade research indicates that the Spider Blade is 50% more stable than traditional blade-style putters.
All three models feature a heavy steel frame, and tungsten heel and toe weights, all designed to raise the MOI to deliver increased head stability.
TaylorMade’s Sergio Garcia had some input in the new designs. The Spaniard finished second at The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week using the new counterbalanced Spider Mallet. Other TaylorMade tour stars who had a hand in the design include Jason Day, Boo Weekley, and Troy Matteson.
The new Daddy Long Legs is priced at £189
The Spider Blade and Spider Mallet are priced at £179
Each model is offered in a single bend 35” or 38” shaft.
The ne putters go on sale on August 15 from all good retailers. For more information, log-on to TaylorMade’s website.
