Golf Australia Express : Issue 7
WHAT TM SAYS: Five per rcent of all golfers are not square to the hole from 12 feet. Ghost Spider’s white finish and unrivalled technology make this putter unlike any other. Its white finish stands out against green grass for perfect aim, and you can customise feel with Movable Weight Technology. Perimeter weighting boosts MOI for consistent distance control and a PURE ROLL insert gets the ball rolling smooth with forward spin. This putter is Tour proven, with Jason Day posting the lowest total score ever by Augusta first-timer. About the Ghost Spider: After the huge popularity of its white R11 driver, TaylorMade cleverly decided to try it with its popular Spider putter. And with white clearly becoming the new black in golf, there’s no reason this fashionable addition won’t work. While the striking white does stand out against the green background when putting, to say it’ll help your alignment might be a bit of a stretch. But hey, it looks slick, the ball pops off the face nicely at impact, and if you’re a mallet-lover the latest version in the Spider series will please you no end. Just don’t be afraid to give it a try.
