www.tay­lor­made­golf.com Head­weight: 355g

Grip: Winn Medal­list or AVS Mid-Size

Toe hang: Mod­er­ate

TECH: Teams a light, alu­minium body with a heav­ier 304 stain­less steel frame to cre­ate a very high MOI and for­giv­ing put­ter.

WE SAY: If our test team had a pound for ev­ery time we’ve heard a club golfer say they want the same club a tour player uses, we wouldn’t be test­ing golf equip­ment for a liv­ing. For us the Tour Red is a prime ex­am­ple of the grass not be­ing quite so green as you’d ex­pect on the other side. There’s no doubt it is a qual­ity put­ter; it feels great and rolls putts bril­liantly. But the lack of an align­ment line means the Tour Red’s got a look club golfers won’t be ac­cus­tomed to, cer­tainly not in an MOI mal­let. There’s a short flow neck too, which tour pros are fans of as it gives a re­ally clean ap­pear­ance – but its trade-off is a de­cent amount of toe hang which isn’t that com­mon in a MOI mal­let, ei­ther.

VER­DICT: A high-qual­ity MOI put­ter that, in the right hands and matched to the right stroke, re­ally per­forms. But you need to take time get­ting to know it be­fore tak­ing the plunge on one as it is so tai­lored to Ja­son Day’s eye and stroke.
