CLEVELAND TFI MEZZO
www.clevelandgolf.com Headweight: 360g
Grip: Lamkin Cleveland TFI Toe hang: Face Balanced
TECH: Cleveland says 80% of golfers don’t have their eyes directly over the ball when putting. They reckon that by raising the alignment aid to exactly half the size of a golf ball they’ve created the most accurate aid ever.
WE SAY: Centre-shafted putters were on the up and up a few years ago. Yet this year the trend seems to have slowed as there was a distinct lack of models for us to test. Our feeling hasn’t changed about them, though, as we think they offer a fantastically simple way to putt, particularly if you like to see your putting stroke work in straight lines. Our pro was the only tester to put up a protest over the Mezzo’s head shape, but then proceeded to hole putt after putt with it!
VERDICT: If your putting could benefit from some simplification then you won’t find a simpler model to set up and aim than the Mezzo. Feel and feedback off the face is firm, a good match for greens that aren’t at their summer best.
