TaylorMade has released a new putter range called the TP Patina Collection.
It gets its name from the new patina finish that combines black nickel and copper properties to create a rich look that oxidises over time.
There are seven models in the range – three of which are the more blade-like Soto, Juno and brand new for 2019, the Del Monte wide blade. The other four models – Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3 and Dupage – are mallet designs.
There are some other slight visual differences between this new range of putters and the TP Black Copper collection, which it replaces. For example, there is no longer a white sight line on the top of the putters, instead this has been replaced by black lines. Other design upgrades include a new aluminium Pure Roll TP insert. Slightly thicker than previous TaylorMade putter inserts, this new design has been manufactured to offer improved sound and feel off the face while also optimising roll.
There are also new TP screws in the cavity, which fasten the new insert securely in place. This creates a more solid feel, especially at impact thanks to minimising the voids and air pockets. For the first time in Europe, the two sole weights are adjustable so golfers can fine tune feel.
The putters come with a Superstroke Pistol GTR 1.0 grip as standard, as well as a KBS CT-Taper Stepless Chrome shaft, which is designed to offer a stiff structure that ensures there is less twisting at impact.
The TP Patina Collection is available in 34- and 35-inch shaft lengths in both RH and LH models, with an RRP of £239.
