TaylorMade releases new Ghost Series putters
The R11 and Burner SuperFast 2.0 drivers were not TaylorMade's first forays into the world of white golf clubs. The Rossa Corza Ghost putter, a mallet that featured a triangular head and a hole in the back to aid in alignment, was available last season. Today, TaylorMade is adding three more putters to the Ghost family, two more mallets and a blade.
The Ghost putters stand out sharply at address against greens, which the company says helps with alignment. The three black lines on the top of each putter should also help to ensure that your aim is true.
But it's the face of the Ghost putters that might make the biggest impact on golfers. Whereas the original Ghost Corza featured TaylorMade's red AGSI+ face insert, these Ghost putters come with a new Pure Roll insert that is designed to get its grooves in contact with the ball to reduce skidding and help the ball start rolling even faster. TaylorMade says the grooves also help to soften the feel of the insert. The photo below shows the insert in detail.
In addition to an updated Corza Ghost, golfers can now also try the Ghost TM-Tour 110. This heel-toe weighted blade is the putter that Paula Creamer used to win the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, and it has adjustable weight ports in the back to customize feel.
The Ghost TM-Tour 770 is the mid-size mallet Rory Sabbatini used to win the 2011 Honda Classic in March. It features a single-bend neck and small weight ports in the heel area. The TM-Tour 880, a small mallet design, has the same weights but a slightly different hosel and neck shape.
