TaylorMade Golf introduces TP Putter Collection
TaylorMade Golf has today announced the forthcoming release of its new line of putters – the TP Collection – which is set to land in March/April 2017.
Comprised of 6 distinct models (five of which feature a 303 stainless steel construction for solid feel and skim-milled machining for exacting contours), the TP Collection utilises new materials and new milling processes which enhance the aesthetics of each putter and improve their performances.
Inspired by the insert played by the No.1 & No.2 golfers in the world Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, each TP putter employs TaylorMade’s new Pure Roll insert for improved roll. The insert combines 45° grooves with a softer polymer to promote better forward roll and reduced skidding across varying surfaces.
The composition and construction of the Pure Roll insert is specially engineered to bring the grooves into direct and active contact with the golf ball during impact. This even includes short putts. The grooves in the face also serve to strategically soften the insert’s structure, and together these factors make the insert perform at a very high level.
The new putter names may raise some eyebrows, however the TP Collection draws inspiration from areas, regions, and landmarks of some of the world’s greatest golf destinations and historic courses.
Juno & Soto
Juno and Soto are classically designed blade putters with heel-toe weighting for optimized balance, control and feel. The Juno, which was played by Sergio Garcia in Hazeltine at the Ryder Cup, features longer squared off contours with a single sightline on top. The pads have fine linear machine lines and the Soto 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 10 gram weights in the sole.
Mullen & Berwick
Mullen and Berwick make up the classic mallet Tour-proven models of the TP Collection. Mullen 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 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 5 gram weights in the sole.
Ardmore & Chaska
Arriving in 2017, Ardmore and Chaska add a little mid-size modern mallet to the TP Collection. Ardmore features a deep cavity with dual sightlines to improve upon balance and alignment. The Ardmore is 355 grams 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 TP Collection of putters.
The new TaylorMade Golf TP Putter Collection will be available soon from American Golf, so keep checking back for updates.
