TaylorMade Spider GT putter guide

You’ll undoubtedly see some horror moments and some hero moments on the Augusta greens next week. Even the easiest-looking putts are tough there! But, with the right putter, you can make sure that you create more hero moments than horror moments in 2022.

When you think of that iconic shot of Tiger throwing his arms in the air after the final putt of his 2019 Masters victory, his putter went up too. Without that putter, we wouldn’t have one of golf’s greatest moments. But what putter will you be holding aloft when you create your own great golf moment?

We’d say that something from the TaylorMade Spider GT range is a pretty good shout. You might not have all the cameras that Tiger had when your big moment comes, but it’s still nice to have such a sleek-looking putter in the bag. More importantly, though, every model comes with a PureRoll insert to create topspin that emulates the sort of roll you see in a ‘Tour highlights’ video. So, both your putter and your putts have Tour-like looks, but what about the scorecard?

The four different options – Spider GT, Notchback, Rollback & Splitback – all have unique shapes and features, but the theme of stability runs through them all. Every putter has a ‘Fluted Feel’ shaft that gives you enhanced stability and feel. Pairing that with perimeter weighting gives you tight dispersion on longer putts and precision on shorter putts, so you can give yourself opportunities and make sure you take them.

You might already know which one you think will look coolest when you celebrate, but you’ll need to get to that point first by choosing the putter that will help you most. We can help you with that, so feel free to swing by our pro shop any time and speak to a member of the team.
