Putting legend Kenny Knox releases line of putters, wedges

Published

on

If there ever were a golfer who knew the importance of good short-game clubs, it was Kenny Knox. The three-time PGA Tour event winner at one point held the record for the fewest number of putts in a tournament. So it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about putters and wedges.

With those credentials, it’s no surprise that Knox would create his own line of putters and wedges.

Knox has a pair of putters for sale, each set at $269.99. The 18 and the 93 have what Knox calls a “4-3-2-1” loft. The lofts on the face decrease from 4 degrees at the top to 1 degree at the bottom. This pattern is promoted to minimize the effects of bad hand positioning by creating early roll.

With the design, the ball always come off the face with 2.5 degree loft, Knox said.

“It doesn’t drive into the ground like these other negative-loft putters,” Knox said. “It does have some loft, so the ball comes off the face softer, lands softer and then has a true roll and as a result. Distance control is more consistent.”

The differences Knox’s two putters are their offsets and finish. The 18 has a half-shaft offset and comes in chrome. The 93 has a full-shaft offset and comes in black chrome and brushed satin.

The name “18” is derived from one of Knox’s putting records, 18 putts for 18 holes, a record that he now shares with Corey Pavin. The name “93” comes from another one of Knox’s old putting records, 93 putts in a 72-hole tournament (the record has since been eclipsed by David Frost, who recorded 92 putts in an event). Another one of Knox’s former putting records, eight putts in nine holes, was overtaken by short-game instructor Stan Utley, who recorded only six putts in nine holes.

Knox also has three wedges for sale, each selling $119.99. There are 52-, 56- and 60-degree models, each weighing 303 grams.

“These were designed in conjunction with my designer and Jose Maria Olazabal,” Knox said. “What Seve taught us was to take the heel and the toe and ground those off, which raises that center of gravity. What that does, is when you hit the ball, it stays on the face longer.”

    18 putts in 18 holes for pavin? Wait does that mean that a 300 dollar putter is useless? Since pavin uses a bullseye and which must mean it is the golfer not the equipment. So if a person spent 300 dollars on putting lessons they should be better off than having bought the new putter. However these clubs look great.

      Looks to me like Kenny Knox hooked up with Bob from Txema. Same wedges, same putter, different stamps. Deceptive?

        Technically EVERYBODY is copying off of Ping, and not just the Anser. Scotty for sure is not the only one in the industry to have ripped off ideas.

    Yawn. If my grandmother came out with a line of wedges and “custom” putters that I’ve seen a million times before I wouldn’t be shocked.

    I had the opportunity to try these wedges and putter two weeks ago. I had to pry them out of the hands of my fellow golf professionals as they were so popular. The are a great product.
