Bloodline Golf Partners with Els for Autism Foundation to Produce a Limited-Edition Putter to Support World Autism Month
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., April 8, 2022 – Bloodline Golf is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Els for Autism Foundation to produce a limited-edition putter to support World Autism Month during the month of April. The limited-edition Vale putter features blue sight lines and accent colors to match the blue color associated with autism awareness.
There are several ways for golfers to support the Els for Autism Foundation through this new partnership. The limited-edition Vale putter is listed at the special price of $279. For every limited-edition putter purchased, Bloodline will donate $30.00 to the Els for Autism Foundation. For every purchase of the limited-edition Els for Autism headcover, Bloodline will donate $25.00 to the foundation. And, lastly, when someone purchases any Bloodline putter during the month of April, the company will donate 5% of the sale to Els for Autism.
“Ernie has been a supporter of Bloodline since he first played the original R1-J blade putter in mid-2017 and became our first ambassador and high-profile investor in 2018,” said Brad Adams, Bloodline CEO. “We are pleased to be able to support a cause that’s near and dear to his heart.”
In addition to being passionate about golf, Els is passionate about helping people and families affected by autism spectrum disorder through the Els for Autism Foundation which he and his wife, Liezl established in 2009. The Els’ son, Ben, is impacted by autism spectrum disorder, which affects 1 in 54 children in the United States.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that is caused by differences in how the brain functions. People with ASD may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in different ways. Signs of ASD begin during early childhood and usually last throughout a person’s life.
World Autism Month, which was first held in 1972, emphasizes the need for public awareness to promote acceptance, celebrate the differences, and be more inclusive towards autistic individuals around us.
Bloodline has developed a putter line which includes a high-performance carbon fiber shaft that contributes to the putter’s unique capability to stand up by itself on the green. In designing its putters, the company created an ultralight shaft that does not compromise on feel or flex characteristics and also includes an oversized gripping section built directly into the shaft. This pioneering construction enables Bloodline putters to have an extremely low balance point that helps give more feel and release during the stroke.
The Vale putter features:
- High-Performance Polymer (HPP) head shape and construction
- Tungsten-infused face insert
- Ultra-light carbon fiber shaft and EVA grip with an ultra-sensitive feeling wrap
- Patented head, sole, and balance point design features
All Bloodline putters feature interchangeable/adjustable components. The ability to interchange a variety of shaft/hosel combinations and lengths and lies enables golfers of all levels and putting styles to easily get the proper fit.
