TaylorMade’s New Combo Ghost Spider Putter
TaylorMade has finally followed up their putter line with the new Ghost Spider. In 2008 they introduced the Monza Spider putter. This succession putter is a unique all white design that combines forgiveness and alignment. If you think this putter already looks familiar you were probably watching last weekends U.S. Open. Runner up Jason Day used a Tour prototype version of this putter. Developed by another well known Tour professional and TaylorMade staffer, Dave Stockton.
Jason Day said, “The Ghost Spider I'm using has given me a whole new level of confidence. The white color makes it so easy to aim and the shape makes it so stable. I've never had this much control or made so many putts.”
The Ghost Spider has two adjustable weights in the back corners of the head.
These moveable weights contribute to the highest MOI of any TaylorMade putter to date. Another added benefit of this high MOI is that this putter is more resistant to off-center hits.
Distinctive to the Spider line the steel frame head has more weight in the back to increase MOI. The adjustability of the putter allows you to make the head heavier or lighter by changing the weight.
The face of the putter includes TaylorMade’s Pure Roll insert, which is found in most of their putters. Proven to help promote a forward spin and enhanced, feel and sound.
Why did TaylorMade produce another white club? The white clubhead allows players to see a sharp distinction between the club and the putting surface permitting a golfer to square up the face at address. As long as we are talking about alignment the Ghost Spider uses that as one of their crowning product features. Two golf ball-sized ovals and alignment line are found running along the face to the back of the putter.
TaylorMade created two versions one with a single-bend shaft and the other with a straight shaft that goes directly into the center of the face. The Ghost Spider putter will be available in golf stores this summer with a release date of: 7/5.
