TaylorMade will be launching its newest Daddy Long Legs Putter on April 15th to hopefully combat the hype surrounding Nike’s Method Putter.

According to Brian Bazzel, director of product creation at TaylorMade, “We designed the putter to provide the feel, stability, and performance of an anchored putter but for players who putt with the traditional method. So far we’ve had players who use both methods try the Daddy Long Legs and give us very positive feedback regarding the ultra-stable feel.”

Golf.com published that design features of the putter include a 16-piece clubhead made from 8 different materials, a Pure Roll face insert, and a 15” grip that tips the scales at 130g, which is approximately twice the weight of a standard grip.

Bazzel goes on to say that “The goal of the heavy grip is to provide counterbalancing, which moves the balance point of the club closer to the player’s hands. This weighting technique makes it easier to control the clubhead and square it at impact on a more consistent basis.”

The new putter, which Bazzel claims a wide variety of players have already gravitated to, retails for USD199 (probably PhP8,000 – 12,000 in the Philippines depending on what they peg the exchange rate at).

Will try to find out when it’ll be available in Manila. Let me know your thoughts on the new putter and design. -WH
