METHOD ORIGIN PUTTERS
RZN material adds off-centre performance AIMED AT Players who want feel and forgiveness HOW MUCH £229.99 (B1-01 and B2-01 models) KEY TECH
The Nike putter used by Rory McIlroy since September is finally available.
The Method Origin range – featuring two blades – makes the most of a RZN layer and polymetal grooves for improved feel and roll.
The putters have a unique three-piece construction where an integrated RZN layer sits between the face and a mass on the back.
Nike claims that the more off-centre the hit, the more the RZN compresses and the more energy is returned to the ball.
You’ll also find tungsten weights in the heel and toe to further improve forgiveness, and new full-length polymetal grooves that are designed to provide a more consistent, efficient and faster forward roll.
Speaking about his putter, McIlroy said: “When I first tested it I realised the long putts kept rolling just a little bit more. It just kept rolling and rolling, which was awesome.”
The newly designed face features twice the number of polymetal grooves found in previous Method putters. More grooves mean increased friction on the ball’s cover, creating earlier forward roll and a smoother, softer feel.
The Method Origin B1-01 and B2-01 are both available now with a pistolstyle grip that is slightly wider at the top. They each cost £229.99.
