Vijay Singh breaks out new Never Compromise X-Ray putter at Masters
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Vijay Singh is competing this week with a new belly putter in his bag, a Never Compromise X-Ray. Singh, the 2000 Masters champion, had been using a Never Compromise GM2 Exchange #7 as recently as last week at the Shell Houston Open.
The X-Ray is a high-MOI mallet, which is designed to help players improve their alignment and remain steady at impact for improved distance control. There are five metallic "ribs" embedded in a soft insert to create a cushioned feel and help the ball start rolling faster.
Unfortunately for Singh, even with his caddie bending down to ground level to get a better look at the greens, he needed 30 putts to complete his first round at Augusta.
You can read more about the X-Ray, and other new mallet putters, in the GOLF Buyer's Guide.
