Bettinardi Golf Unveils Matt Kuchar Signature Putters

Gareth Gay, Getty ImagesPremium putter manufacturer, Bettinardi Golf, today announced its new collaboration with PGA professional, Matt Kuchar.

A 5-time PGA Tour winner, Kuchar is currently ranked 5th in consecutive cuts made, 10th in 3-putt avoidance, and inside the top-20 in putts made inside 25 feet thanks to his unique putting style where he rests the end of the club against his left forearm and clasps it tight with his right hand.

Though unique, the grip is USGA conforming and not considered an anchored stroke. More so, the untraditional grip seems to be extremely effective, allowing Kuchar to win most recently at the 2013 WGC-Accenture Match Play with a Bettinardi putter.

Kuchar in partnership with Bettinardi will launch two models:

Kuchar Model 1

  • Designed as a heel-toe weighted, face balanced putter with a wider profile that maximizes the sweet spot
  • Showcases patented F.I.T. (Feel Impact Technology), which removes 55% of material from face resulting in a softer feel at impact.
  • Optional Arm Lock style that features a double bend shaft with 2.5 shaft offset
  • Milled from solid block of proprietary Soft Carbon steel and boasts non-corrosive Pewter P.V.D. finish

  • Showcases patented F.I.T. (Feel Impact Technology), which removes 55% of material from face resulting in a softer feel at impact.
  • Optional Arm Lock style that features a double bend shaft with 2.5 shaft offset
  • Milled from solid block of proprietary Soft Carbon steel and boasts non-corrosive Pewter P.V.D. finish

These new putters look awesome! My brother-in-law has an old-school Bettinardi Ben Hogan mallet putter, which in my opinion, is the softest and most accurate putter I’ve ever tried. If this new Kuchar line is anything like the Hogan putters, I’m positive they’ll sellout real quick.

For those who are not familiar with the brand, Bettinard is proud to be one of the few manufacturers to design, craft, mill and fit One-Piece putters for its players all in the United States. Like me, I’m pretty sure you’ll want one after watching the video below:

I’m told the putters will be available in the Philippines in both styles (Standard and Kuchar Arm Lock) starting June 2013. Can’t wait to tryout the Arm Lock style to see if it fixes my crappy putting stroke.

Let me know what you think of the new collaboration! Cheers!
