Bettinardi back again with 2017 BB1 Tiki Limited-Run putters

Published

on

In honor of the PGA Tour’s Hawaiian-swing of tournaments — the SBS Tournament of Champions at Kapalua on the island of Maui, and the Sony Open at Waialae C.C. on Oahu — Bettinardi is releasing a limited-edition BB1 Tiki putter that captures the island lifestyle of Hawaii.

It’s the second straight year the company is releasing a Hawaii-inspired putter, giving Bettinardi enthusiasts another chance at one if they missed Bettinardi’s 2016 BB1 Tiki putters

2017 BB1 Tiki Limited-Run putters

The putter, which is milled from soft, mild carbon steel, has a “Smoked Bronze” PVD finish. Ocean waves and a Tiki Totem are engraved on the sole, and the face of the putter has a special Polynesian-inspired F.I.T. Face, a milling design that removes material from the putter face for a softer feel.

Bettinardi’s BB1 Tiki putters are available in right-hand only, and in the following specs:

  • Weight: 355 grams
  • Toe Hang: 1/4 toe hang
  • Lie Angle: 70 degrees
  • Loft: 3 degrees

Only 150 putters are available starting on January 11, and can be purchased from select Bettinardi retailers for $500 each.

    “Hawaii-inspired putter” At first these specialty putter manufactures thought we were fools. Now they are just laughing right in our face.

    Ping Anser is a timeless design; great… but haw many oems and for how many years can they continue to retread limited editions. I care Zero about “new releases” of these products. Shank.
