Bettinardi releases 1-of-274 custom “BB1Fitz” US Open putters commemorating Matt Fitzpatrick’s 2022 win

Published

on

Matt Fitzpatrick won his first ever major championship at the recent 2022 U.S. Open at The Country in Brookline, Mass., with a score of 6-under-par 274, using an ultra custom Bettinardi putter.

In 2020, Fitzpatrick switched into a Bettinardi prototype that was inspired by his previous Yes! Tracy II putter, which featured iconic C-grooves (concentric) on the face.

Speaking with GolfWRX in 2020, Sam Bettinardi, current Vice President of Bettinardi Golf, had this to say about Fitzpatrick’s switch:

“When we work with PGA Tour players, who are the most discriminate minds in the game of golf, they have extremely specific requests. Due to our ability to craft everything in house with exacting tolerances/specifications, we honored Matt Fitzpatrick’s request by duplicating his current gamer…Matt was struggling to find backups for his putter he has been using since high school because his old company is not in business anymore. He wanted to work with us, because he knew we could make this request happen. To have a player like Matt, 24th in the world and a very solid putter overall, feel comfortable to switch from a putter he’s used since he’s been 16, is a testament to our craft and we feel privileged to have his trust to get it done.” 

Since then, Fitzpatrick has been using the one-off custom Bettinardi, and it finally got its first U.S. Open win.

To commemorate the unique putter and historic win, Bettinardi is releasing a limited run of 274 putters, called the 2022 BB1Fitz.

Fitzpatrick spoke on the putter and sent a message to his fans in a recent Instagram post on Bettinardi’s account:

Hey fans of Bettinardi, Matthew Fitzpatrick here. Just wanted to send a short message out to everyone. Using my Bettinardi for my U.S. Open win was fantastic. They’ve been a great help to me when I was in between putters, they managed to make this beautiful thing. And it’s worked a treat so far. In honor of my U.S. Open win, Bettinardi will be releasing a limited run of 274 putters, in honor of the score that I won on. They’re currently in production, and they’ll be available to preorder on Bettinardi.com very soon. So thanks for all your support and see you soon.”

    Not quite!

    It’s not the same as Fitz’s Yes!

    Different feel and roll than the Yes!
    I have both. 7 Yes! CNC milled putters. And Garsen Grips.

    I don’t putt with the Bettinardi. It’s nice but…
    It’s Sitting in my office since last year.

Bettinardi unveils new 2023-2024 Queen B line of putters

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today introduced its new Queen B Series of putters that includes four timeless models.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.

Bettinardi adds BB28 putter to brand’s BB series

Published

on

Bettinardi has today unveiled the addition of the BB28 to its BB series line.

The BB28 features Aggressive Flymill face milling designed to give the putter a responsive, yet soft feel off the putter head, and offers a full-flange design, which provides greater perimeter weighting and higher M.O.I.characteristics.

This latest addition uses a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishing technology, which is a thin, yet resilient coating that shows off the mill marks in an artisan way.

Each BB Series putter is one-piece milled from 303 Stainless Steel, which is the same blend of material preferred by all Bettinardi Tour staffers, with the metal offering a more durable, responsive, and solid feeling putter for optimal performance.

Bettinardi have also launched the center shaft BB28 putter featuring a 1/4 toe-hang wide-body blade, as well as a BB28 Armlock containing a near-face-balanced wide-body blade.

The BB28 model is available for pre-order at Bettinardi.com ($430) from November 22nd and at retail on January 22nd.
