Spotted: Two new Toulon prototypes, PDX and Memphis

Published

on

On Monday at the 2017 Wyndham Championship, we spotted a new Toulon “PDX Proto” putter on the putting green at Sedgefield CC. Then, on Tuesday, the company unveiled a Memphis prototype that displayed a flow neck, which differs from the hosel design featured in the stock model.

Will these putters make it to the market, or are they Tour-only prototypes? Here’s what Toulon has to say:

“Toulon Design has been a popular choice on Tour this year, and we’re constantly testing prototype models with Tour Pros to get their feedback,” said the company in a statement. “These are prototype putters, and working with them will help give us insight from a player’s perspective.”

GolfWRX Spotted: 2021 New Ping putter series at WCG Workday

Published

on

This week, the PGA Tour is at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton Florida, and we were on-site Tuesday to spy some interesting things from the grounds and on the putting green where players were prepping for the first round of the WGC – Workday Championship where the purse is 10.5 million dollars!

It’s on the putting green where we spotted a whole line of new putters from Ping, and although we don’t have all the details about the new line there is enough visual technology to draw come conclusions including:

  • Dual-durometer inserts like the current Sigma 2 ( red accent )
  • Grooved insert technology
  • Heavy perimeter weighting on the heel and toe to increase MOI – assumed to be tungsten

Don’t forget that you can check out the full image galleries in the GolfWRX Tour Equipment forum.

Bettinardi Golf has announced the official signing of former World Number 2 amateur and LPGA Tour rising player Patty Tavatanakit.

Entering her sophomore season on the LPGA Tour, Tavatanakit will play her DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel) Studio Stock 3 putter, with the 21-year-olds first tournament this week at the Gainbridge Championship in Orlando, Florida.

Patty attended the University of California Los Angeles, where she became a 7-time winner and two-time WGCA First Team All-American. With her success at UCLA, Patty qualified and became the Low Amateur at the 2018 U.S. Women’s Open, where she finished T5. Turning pro shortly after, she earned the Gaelle Truet Rookie of the Year award in 2019 on the Symetra Tour.

Putter Specs:

Model: Studio Stock 3

Weight: 360 grams

Material: DASS (Double Aged Stainless Steel)

Face Milling: Micro-honeycomb

Finish: Black PVD

Speaking on joining Team Bettnardi, Tavatanakit said

“I was always a big fan of Bettinardi Golf during my collegiate days, and now I couldn’t be more excited to be part of their official Tour staff. Being able to visit their shop, see the technology, and try all their face millings to find my perfect putter was truly awesome.

The confidence I now have in my putting is the best it has been, and I’m really looking forward to this season and seeing it pay off on the greens.”

Tavatanakit joins a young lineup of LPGA Bettinardi Staffers, including Annie Park, Muni He, and PGA Tour stars, such as Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sam Horsfield Jason Kokrak, and long-time staffers Matt Kuchar and Fred Couples.
