The TP Red Put­ter Col­lec­tion Ex­pe­ri­ence Eas­ier Dis­tance

Golf Asia - - CONTENTS -

An ex­pan­sion of Taylormade‘s TP Col­lec­tion of put­ters, the in­tro­duc­tion of TP Red com­prises six per­for­mance mal­let mod­els de­signed for the dis­cern­ing player who seeks the per­for­mance of Taylormade’s renowned Pure Roll tech­nol­ogy in an aes­thet­i­cally ap­peal­ing Tour Red colour­way that the com­pany be­came the first to roll out in 2016. Since then, the Tour Red colour­way has seen its de­mand grow ex­po­nen­tially on global tours fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Taylormade staffers Ja­son Day, Jon Rahm and Ser­gio Gar­cia.

The TP Red Col­lec­tion is com­prised of five new vari­a­tions of the Ard­more put­ter as well as the Chaska model. Each of the six new mod­els fea­ture milled 304 stain­less steel heads with Tour Red fin­ish for a pre­mium look and feel with high-con­trast colour­ing and a va­ri­ety of sight­line op­tions to pro­mote im­proved align­ment.

Justin Rose, who first saw the put­ter at a com­pany pho­to­shoot, put the Chaska into play the fol­low­ing week at the BMW Cham­pi­onship, where he fin­ished T2 and recorded a re­mark­able strokes gained: putting of 2.393.

Each put­ter in the TP Red Col­lec­tion has a head weight of 355g, a 3.5° loft, 70° of lie an­gle and comes avail­able in 34” & 35’’ lengths. Each model in the col­lec­tion also fea­tures in­ter­change­able sole weights to en­able the ad­just­ment of mass for op­ti­mal per­for­mance. Sim­i­lar to the orig­i­nal TP Col­lec­tion, each new model uti­lizes a new milling process along with Taylormade’s pro­pri­etary Pure Roll insert to de­liver op­ti­mal for­ward roll with a de­sired firm feel.

The 6061 alu­minium Pure Roll insert com­bines 45° grooves with a softer poly­mer be­tween the grooves to pro­mote bet­ter for­ward roll and re­duce 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 ball dur­ing

im­pact, even on short putts. The grooves in the face also serve in part to strate­gi­cally soften the insert’s struc­ture. To­gether, these fac­tors make the insert per­form at a very high level. Cur­rently, Taylormade Tour staffers Jon Rahm, Ja­son Day, Rory Mcil­roy and Justin Rose all play put­ters in­cor­po­rat­ing Pure Roll tech­nol­ogy.
