Hand crafted French excellence just for the elite...
How many of us have forgotten we’re fairly highly handicapped and imagined we are on the greens of Augusta putting with Adam Scott or a back-in-time Greg Norman. I know I have. In fact, I’d like to swing like anybody other than myself. I’m a terrible golfer. It doesn’t stop me from tearing up the green … literally, but I’d like to be able to play better, or at least feel like I’m playing better.
So I was interested to see what playing Valgrine-style would be like: would it make me putt better, or would it make me feel like I belong on the golf course? Most definitely the latter.
This French brand is known for its exclusivity, its exquisite feel and if you’re a decent player its fine shot making.
For those who can afford the clubs at a sale price 18.265€ (a little over $27,000 aud), it is well worth the purchase.
ValGrine is a club that offers no limits to performance and is created using the most innovative technologies.
Designing a putter that offers technical characteristics previously unimagined was the challenge that creator Grégory Moreau set. The result? A stunning object showing that technical perfection is possible. The power, precision, touch, sound, balance, swing and handling are impeccable.
Each putter is manufactured and assembled carefully by hand with more than 20 master craftsmen involved in the process in France.
A traditional approach is usually full of compromises. However, Moreau did not take this approach. And it shows. Maison ValGrine makes putters a luxury, full of refinement and capable of extreme performance. Both this philosophy and this brand universe are unique.
The clubs are entirely customised and under a guarantee of 100% French manufacturing.
ValGrine has accurately mastered the mass of the putter. This know-how is unique and permits adaptation to the morphology and swing of the player (line and arc). This science optimises performance, tolerance, efficiency and precision.
Line of sight
These lines of sight ameliorate precision at address. The morphological position improves the kinematics of swing by placing the legs, spine, arms and eyes in line with the ball. There is just one objective with Valgrine: reinforce your performance and confidence.
