Bettinardi’s Hawaii-inspired BB1 Tiki putter

Published

on

The PGA Tour kicks off the year 2016 with the Hawaiian-swing — consisting of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on the island of Maui this week, and the Sony Open in Honolulu next week. To celebrate and commemorate the island lifestyle, Bettinardi made 100 BB1 Tiki putters, dripping in Hawaiian influence.

Notice the portion of the putter behind the face has no “pocket.”

The BB1 Tiki is milled from mild carbon steel with a Texas Tea finish and Bettinardi’s signature honeycomb face milling. The premium-made putter is “complemented by the gentle blue waves of the Aloha State, and intricate engraving of the Tiki men,” according to Bettinardi

The prototype putters will be available on Jan. 15, and will sell for $450 each with the following specs:

  • Weight: 350 grams
  • Lie angle: 71 degrees
  • Loft: 3 degrees
  • Toe Hang: 3/4

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the Tiki belongs to the Maori race from New Zealand. Unless of course they have stolen the Tiki from their cousins in Hawaai

      It’s from New Zealand. Bobby B doesn’t Google things. We learned that from the 2nd amendment headcover.

      Well kinda wrong. The entire South Pacific had their Tiki icons and each different region’s vary. It’s presumed that the men of the South Pacific were prolific water travellers judging by the similarities of iconography between regions.

    “Texas Tea Finish”
    Is this a standard Bettinardi finish? Does anyone know what goes into this?

    Stunning, not even too bad of a price for something limited like that.
