In-hand look: Justin Rose’s Axis1 prototype putter

Published

on

Fresh from becoming a member of Team Honma, Justin Rose is set to kick off his 2019, as it was reported in our WITB piece yesterday, with a custom Axis1 prototype putter in the bag.

Our guys have been on hand at this week’s Desert Classic to check out the Englishman’s new flat-stick, which Rose will hope will be a crucial weapon in defense of his World Number 1 ranking, and secured plenty of photos of the new addition.

The Englishman, who ranked 21st for strokes gained putting last season, used the TaylorMade TP Ardmore 2 putter during his ascent to the summit of the game in 2018. After the FedEx Cup champ’s equipment change, Rose will now look to continue his excellent form on the greens with the Axis 1 prototype.

While the putter move will surprise many, Rose is no stranger to Axis1 putters and has been spotted on our forums in the past both testing a flat-stick from the company back at the 2016 Players Championship, and gaming one at the Dell Technologies Championship in 2017.

For more photos and discussion of Justin Rose’s new Axis 1 Prototype putter, make sure to check out the forum thread here.

    you cannot keep blaming the eqpt but to buy something this expensive is just marketing not going to put any more putts away

    I just tried one of these as the founder is local here near Boston and a golfer too. I’ve never felt a putter that delivers it’s strike in such a solid, confident way. This is a game changer folks. I’m a convert and I’ve got one on order.

    It’s designed to be a zero MOI, square-to-square stroke motion putter. I’m sure it works or it wouldn’t be in JR’s hands. Some of you are too young to remember the MacGregor Response putter Nicklaus won his last Masters (’86) with. When Jack first saw it at the MacGregor HQ, he thought it was the ugliest thing he had ever seen. Then he hit a few putts and the rest is history.

    If you check out axis1golf.com this thing is actually a very mild version of some of the contraptions they make. Some of those things are just TERRIBLE.

    That has got to be on of the ugliest putters ever made. And there have been some real doozies in the past. Just looks awkward and i cant imagine trying to use it with a tournament on the line.

    Shankapotomus would be an appropriate name for it, catch it a little too far inside….and Shankaroo!!!

    Oooh. That neck and hosel alignment looks eerily similar to what I see when I look down at my putter — when I’ve had too many beers!

    It’s over for JR. He’s become the next Adam Scott, desperate to get rid of the yips.
    With great coaches you should be able to fix the problem. Otherwise, why do we need coaches? Just buy a contraption like this to fix it. Yeah.

      2, 2, T4, 8, 3, 1, 3, T17. Ranked #1 in the world. If that dude has the “yips” then every golfer in the world should want them. SMH.

        Well said. Rose is a stud. Did you know he lead the PGA last year in only allowing 7x… 7x doubles of worse? Thats nuts man.
        He may have a stumble out of the gates with new gear but he will never leave top 10.

        He should’ve won the Tour Championship but his putting let him down and he gave it away to the most hated dude in golf in Eldrick

        Don’t SYH Scott – you’re doing a great job of proving that there are a lot of empty-headed ignoramuses out there who call themselves golfers.

          I’m more impressed that you spelt ignoramus right ????????

    That putter has a very odd look to it. I dont like the neck and hosel at all.
