WILSON STAFF GRANT PARK
www.wilson.com Headweight: 356g Grip: Wilson Staff Infinite Toe hang: Strong
TECH: A flanged mallet with extra weight in both the head and grip to create a counterbalanced model. A double milled face ensures precision, while parallel and perpendicular sight lines simplify alignment.
WE SAY: Wilson can lay claim to making the legendary TPA putter that Nick Faldo used to win a couple of Majors. We can’t say the Grant Park is exactly the same shape, but it is very close. A huge amount of toe hang means the Grant Park is much more suited to a putting stroke with rotation than a straight-back-and-through motion. We liked the white toe-to-heel alignment line on the top edge which clearly shows where the blade is pointing, and we also felt the positive crisp feel off the solid milled face was spot on.
VERDICT: Wilson Staff says the Grant Park is counterbalanced; after testing a stack of putters we’d say it’s a more gentle introduction to the concept. The oversized grip fits nicely in the hands and will go some way to helping eliminate wrist break from your stroke, too.
