CHARL’S NEW PUT­TER HAS ‘WINGS’

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

harl Schwartzel ex­pe­ri­enced grief on the greens on the PGA Tour this sea­son, rank­ing 176th in strokes gained/putting – a shock­ing rank con­sid­er­ing he would have led the tour in that stat in 2010 (if he had enough rounds to qual­ify) and was 43rd two years ago.That led the 2011 Mas­ters cham­pion to switch from a blade put­ter to Nike’s Method Con­verge S2-12 (left), a mal­let with a dif­fer­ent look (the put­ter sports “wings” in the back cav­ity area) that Schwartzel felt helped with his align­ment. The put­ter fea­tures a resin ma­te­rial be­tween the face and back of the put­ter to help with per­for­mance on off-cen­tre hits over a wider area of the face.The resin also is used in the grooved in­sert to pro­mote a bet­ter roll.
