Love seeing Bettinardi Golf continuing to pick up rising stars. The strategy seems to be working very well with Francesco Molinari as living proof. Impressive eye for talent.

I love the caption on that photo - "British masters champion no longer has to buy his Bettinardi putters"...genius!

Unsure of the status of his contracts for the rest of his bag but wonder if he'll move into the Betti wedges?  Are any major Tour players using their wedges?

Thrilled to see Core Golf get a mention. After PXG managed to fit me in to the wrong shafts, Adam & Craig managed to sort me out. Top guys, top fitting, and a really great shop.

Really? I've seen a few guys playing them, they were good amateur players. Also if you ask around at top fitting shops they seem to have a pretty high opinion of Bettinardis and have told me they sell a decent amount of them.

I agree it would be cool to see him hitting some of their wedges. I got my hands on a 52* and a 56*, they're really versatile when you open them up and create shots around the greens. Feels more like a paint brush than a hammer.

Played with one guy who gamed them and he was not doing it justice.

I think they're pretty sweet looking putters, a bit small of a head and a bit flashy for my taste but overall looks like an awesome product.

When Bettinardi teamed up with Mizuno a while back, they managed to produce one of the best feeling putters I have ever hit. I don’t know if it’s because pretty much every other putter manufacturer has gone down the insert route now, but when I last tried a Betti it felt SO hard off the face.

I see them regularly in Las Vegas.  Nothing like the frequency of Scotty's in people's bags but common enough to not be noticeable.

My issue as well, I’m not buying a putter that expensive if it feels the same as something at Goodwill.

Genuinely, not one. Trying to think if I have even seen them in shops. I guess I must have somewhere but nothing specific comes to mind.

A wise move. They make stunning putters. But hard to find outside the South East or American Golf who I veto.
