Bettinardi, an industry leader in high-quality, milled putters, has announced the introduction of 10 beautiful new flatsticks that will be available January 15, 2015.
Each putter includes head shapes inspired by tour players and completely new finishes. All of Bettinardi’s putters are manufactured in the company’s 40,000 square foot facility in Tinley Park south of Chicago.
Among the 10 new models is the Studio Stock 2 (shown above), a traditionally shaped blade putter that features the tour preferred BB-8 style head. The putter boasts improved weighting to aid stability through the stroke. The face-balanced Studio Stock 16 is a mallet putter built with a custom radius tool for perimeter weighting. Both Studio Stock models ($399) are coated in an attractive bronze finish.
The new line of Bettinardi Queen B putters features what the company calls “micro honeycomb face milling” and a unique blue finish that president and CEO Rob Bettinardi admits “turned out better than we thought.” The Queen B 6 is a wide-bodied blade, while the mallet-style Queen B 7 (shown below) includes a ridge-milled neck. The Queen B models will be $375.
Inspired by seven-time PGA Tour winner and Bettinardi tour staffer Matt Kuchar, the Kuchar Model 2 Halfmoon is designed to entice more golfers to try the arm-lock style of putting ahead of the 2016 ban on anchoring. Sam Bettinardi, VP of sales and marketing, says Kuchar’s suggestion to eliminate offset gave the uniquely designed putter a more traditional appearance. The Kuchar Model 2 HM (below) will be available in both arm-lock and standard lengths for $375.
For the high-MOI market Bettinardi has an entirely new design in the Inovai, the most forgiving putter in the company’s 2015 lineup. The Inovai ($299) is made from 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and features a steel weight low and deep in the head to boost forgiveness.
