The 2017 PGA Show in a Nutshell

Published

on

The conclusion of the 2017 PGA Show brings about a new chapter in the golf equipment world. The fresh crop of products GolfWRXers have anticipated for months are finally starting to hit shelves at golf retailers, and as they do discussions shift from speculation to sophistication in our community.

Which new products will live up to the hype? Which trends will stick… and which will fade? We’ll find out in the weeks and months to come.

Before we officially close the door on the 2017 PGA Show, however, we wanted to revisit the wealth of content we captured in Orlando for our readers who may have missed our live coverage.

If you haven’t already, make sure to check out our three “Show Stoppers” features, in which we highlighted our favorite new products from Demo Day and the Orange County Convention Center.

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.
