    Looks like he just might pick up a hat sponsor soon. He gets paid for putting a Cally driver in his bag.

    Get the yardage and hit it . Great guy but really needs to speed it up just a tad. The talk between himself and his caddie is priceless .

    Congrats on the win Kevin, one of the nice guys on Tour. But for Gods sake get an alarm on your watch and speed up, it is tiring to see you on the clock every Tournament.

    Love seeing the sponsor-less mixed bag guys winning. It is very surprising that one of the top Korean male golfers doesn’t have more sponsors. Definitely seems like a good guy too. Love the banter with his caddy.

      Me too. The banter is funny. Every amateur golfer can relate with it.

    Is it just me or is his GBB Epic driver actually smaller than the retail version?

      There was a 440cc version of the Epic that was available to the pros but never put out in retail. Phil used it for a while last year as did Alex Noren. I’m sure there were others.

      Most of the pros use clubs that are different to retail. I’ve used some tour issue Taylor gear in the past that was unrecognisable besides the logos paint job etc.

    When did Kevin Na stop playing his 917 Driver & switch to Callaway Epic ?

    • Man

      That’s why he won, obviously. And his 3 wood change

      Switched right before the AT&T. Got it done at Aloha Golf in Vegas. I was in the shop watching him get fit for it on Trackman and he was moving it compared to his 917.

    54* and 60*, nothing between the 54 and PW. I’ve noticed this with a few pros, any thoughts?

    • Fingers

      Jul 9, 2018 at 12:25 am

      And i thought i was the only weirdo that had just a 54 and 60. For me it works perfectly.
      Full swing yardages are PW=125, 54*=110 and 60*=85.
      50-60 yards (which i rarely leave myself) is around 1/2 54* or 3/4 60*
      30-40 yards is around 1/2 60*
      And if i want to get real technical with distance ill hit them up or down
      Since im good at random boneheaded moves at times i try to K.I.S.S.

      For those who feel they need a bit more length and better gapping in the longer clubs, this is what they’ll do, and compensate on the short end with working harder to knock down shots and gripping down, etc.

    More great face shots …way to go

WRX Spotlight: Argolf Mordred putter

Published

on

Product: Argolf Mordred putter

Pitch: From Argolf: “…each ARGOLF putter is named after an Arthurian legend.”

“Mordred was known as a notorious traitor who fought King Arthur at the Battle of Camlann, where he was killed, and Arthur was fatally wounded. The images depicting Mordred are reflected in the winged design of the putter which aids in stabilization and alignment, as well as its coloring.”

“With a lower center of gravity that surpasses all mallet putters in the ARGOLF collection, Mordred boasts one of the highest MOIs available on the market. Precisely milled from a solid block of aeronautical-grade 7175 Aluminum, Mordred appeals to the eye with its clean and sophisticated look. Using the most advanced technology, Mordred is shaped through a 5-axis milling process that differentiates itself from its competitors in design and performance due to its aerodynamic features.”

Our take on the Argolf Mordred putter

When you are dreaming of your next high-end milled putter, Argolf might not be the first name that pops into your head. Argolf is a French company founded in 2010 by a couple of aeronautical industrialists and a golf professional. By combining the expertise from both sites, Argolf has created a line of milled putters that not only look like art but with performance that rivals more well-known brands.

Mordred is a large mallet that boasts a very low center of gravity and super high MOI. Milled out of a solid block of aerospace-grade 7175 aluminum, the design is influenced by the aerodynamic lines from F1 race cars. The face features Argolf’s C-Claw technology that produces a more consistent forward roll without skidding. The Mordred is finished off with a single orange site line, a black PVD shaft, and a Pure midsize grip.

When you open the box, you are greeted with a nice grey and orange head cover that feels high quality and durable. Headcover removed, you will say hello to one of the larger mallet putters you have ever tried. The finish is a matte dark gray that eliminates glare and contrasts well with the orange paint fill. Traditionally high end milled putters have milling lines on most of the head and ARGOLF hid most of those in this head. The milling lines and marks are still visible on the rounded sections, but any flat surface is perfectly smooth. From what I have been told by machinists, it is more expensive to remove those lines and marks.

Any mallet putter that boasts high MOI, the style is going to be love or hate. At first, I was taken back by how busy the Mordred is, but out on the course, those flowing lines melt away. Not once was I distracted by them while lining up a putt. Size is going to take some getting used to as it just frames the ball different than any other mallet I have tried.

Feel and sound is where Mordred really shines. I have putted with aluminum putters before, and depending on the design they can have a different sound or feel. The C-Claw face really offers a softer feel and sound with just a slight click at impact. Not as crisp as carbon steel, just a little more muted and I enjoyed the sounds and feel with the Titleist AVX.

ARGOLF’s C-Claw technology does what it says and gets the ball rolling with zero skidding, even on long uphill putts. Putting side-by-side with a standard faced putter you could easily see tell the difference in the first foot of roll. Some face technologies can cause issues with distance control, but every putt rolled out to the expected distance. Compared to a traditionally milled face the Mordred will roll a fraction farther, but something that is easy to adjust to with a handful of putts on the practice green.

Shots off center go almost exactly where you aimed; the toe miss leaks just a touch right. Putts struck on the heel go straight and lose minimal distance while feeling still very solid. Toe strikes leak a hair right and are met with a small amount of vibration letting you know you missed the center of the putter.

Overall, Argolf’s Mordred putter is a great option for someone who is looking for a super forgiving putter. A minor complaint is no grip options for a putter at this price. I like a standard size, firmer grip and there are no other options to select from. The other thing that could become an issue is how well the finish holds up. I always use the headcover when I am not using my putter and the finish still has a few minor marks on it. If you are anti-headcover you might notice faster wear. Those are pretty small issues, and I think that ARGOLF has a really solid putter here.
