TaylorMade Golf Company Introduces Premium Collection of TP Hydro Blast Putters

With a focus on craftsmanship, the new collection combines classic designs with a new Hydro Blast finish to deliver premium performance and aesthetics

CARLSBAD, Calif. (June 11, 2021) – TaylorMade Golf Company, the industry leader in innovation and technology, today announced the all-new TP Hydro Blast Putter collection – providing golfers a selection of seven traditionally shaped putters that feature a renewed dedication to performance and aesthetics.

Crafted with the purist in mind, each putter speaks to the golfing zealot that lives within us all. From the soft flowing curvatures of Soto and Chaska to the sharp geometric lines of Bandon, the collection offers a variety of fully milled putters to fit the vast spectrum of golfers and putting strokes.

The new Hydro Blast finish provides a rich, premium and cohesive look to the family. This durable yet beautiful surface is achieved by applying a high-pressure stream of water to 303 stainless steel. As an unquestioned industry standard for premium putters, 303 stainless steel was destined for milling. The soft yet strong metal delivers a superior feel and artisan aesthetics.

Each model is equipped with the same White Pure Roll™ Insert that’s helped propel Spider X to more than a dozen Tour victories since 2019. It features grooves at a downward 45° angle, designed to optimize roll characteristics by producing enhanced topspin to help the ball start rolling end over end sooner. 

Putters in the TP Hydro Blast collection are named in honour of iconic golfing regions and destinations around the globe. Further differentiating factors include hosel types, sightlines and toe hang. With such variety, there is a TP Hydro Blast putter for every putting style and stroke.

We relied on precision milling and the new Hydro Blast finish to deliver an artisan look to this family of premium putters. Through clean aesthetics, time-honored shaping and superior feel, we’ve blended the modern with the traditional to create a new class of classic.Bill Price, TaylorMade Product Creation, Putter & Wedge

SOTO & DEL MONTE

Soto is a classically shaped blade that features flowing, rounded edges. A clean build with a single sightline on the back cavity, this time-honored shape is meant to inspire confidence and produce exceptional feel putt after putt. Equipped with an L-Neck hosel, the traditional blade shape produces 40° of toe hang, resulting in a putter that best fits players who create maximum face rotation throughout the putting motion.

With a shorter blade length and a wider area from front to back, the Del Monte has a squattier profile that translates to a more mallet-like feel while maintaining the characteristics of a blade. It comes in two models, one with an L-Neck and the other a Single Bend hosel. With 29° of toe hang, the L-Neck best fits players who create moderate face rotation throughout the swing. The Single Bend hosel delivers a more face-balanced outcome (only 8° of toe hang) that better aligns with golfers who have a straight back and straight through putting motion.

BANDON

This Tour-inspired double wing design helps frame the ball at address and encourages forgiveness via optimized perimeter weighting. With sharp geometric lines that reflect the technical precision of this classically made mallet, the Bandon was the first TP Hydro Blast model to appear on Tour. 

Tommy Fleetwood first put the L-Neck version in the bag at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina, after spending hours with TaylorMade’s Tour team and testing numerous configurations. He ultimately elected to use Bandon 1 because it improved the centeredness of his strikes – with his prior putter, he tended to have heel-ward mis-hits.

Fleetwood has a long history of using blade putters, and because this model features 22° of toe hang, it made the transition to a mallet-style head seamless.

For Tommy, the centeredness of strike was a big reason for his switch to the Bandon. The heel-side miss is something he battled with his blade, and we’ve helped him develop a little more consistency with this one. Beyond that, he’s very comfortable with the shape of the putter and has said that it helps him with alignmentAdrian Rietveld, TaylorMade Senior Tour Representative

The Bandon 3 is the second iteration of this model. It features a short slant hosel with increased toe hang (32°) for even more blade-like performance within a mallet design.

DUPAGE

As a modern take on the traditional mallet design, the DuPage relies on unique visual alignment cues and a dual-slot cavity to help frame the ball at address. This face-balanced putter features a single bend hosel and is better suited for players with a straight back and straight through putting motion.

CHASKA

The Tour-proven Chaska revisits the original TaylorMade Corza Ghost design with the familiar circular alignment aid in the back of the putter and three sightlines on top. With rounded contours, adjustable sole weights, and three forward sightlines, the design provides exceptional stability and simple alignment features. This face-balanced putter features a single bend hosel and is better suited for players with a straight back and straight through putting motion.

PRICING & AVAILABILITY  

TP Hydro Blast Putters are available at retail starting today, 6/11/2021, with each model carrying an MSRP of $269.99 CAD. To learn more about the collection of TP Hydro Blast Putters, visit TaylorMadeGolf.ca.

College Golf’s Top-Ranked Player, John Pak, Signs with TaylorMade Golf Company

With Talent, Poise and Pedigree, Pak is the Latest Addition to an Already Talented Roster of Team TaylorMade Athletes 

CARLSBAD, Calif. (June 10, 2021) – TaylorMade Golf Company, an industry leader in innovation and performance, today announces the signing of John Pak – adding to an already impressive roster of PGA TOUR talent. 

Pak, 22, is scheduled to make his professional debut at this week’s Palmetto Championship at Congaree, with a second invite confirmed for the Travelers Championship. After claiming the top spot on the PGA TOUR University rankings, he will receive immediate membership onto the Korn Ferry Tour.

Pak enters the pros as one of the most celebrated collegiate players in recent history, coming off a clean sweep of the three most prestigious awards in college golf. He won the 2021 Jack Nicklaus Award for the national college player of the year, the 2021 Fred Haskins Award for the outstanding collegiate golfer as voted on by players, coaches and media, as well as the 2021 Ben Hogan Award Presented by PNC Bank, recognizing the most outstanding male amateur and college golfer of the year. 

In addition, Pak was named to the Walker Cup in 2019 and 2021, as well as the Palmer Cup team in 2020. He was the low amateur at the 2020 U.S. Open. 

To this stage, his career has been a model of consistency, evidenced by his eight college wins and finishing in the top spot among the PGA TOUR University rankings. The points-based system rewards players for collegiate and Tour performances. He topped the list by nearly 200 points with only a single Tour start, which is a testament to his ability to perform week after week. 

He has been one of Division I golf’s most accurate drivers and possesses strong ball striking skills, a combination that led to a scoring average of 69.76 his senior year. 

I wouldn’t be shocked if John was a top 10 ball-striker after his first full season on Tour; that’s the type of game he has. The accuracy, his ability to repeat his swing and how solid he hits it, we’re excited to add him to the team. Beyond the course, he has a great personality and is genuine to his core. He’s the kind of person that everyone wants to be around. He’s a perfect fit for the culture of Team TaylorMade.Ryan Ressa, TaylorMade’s Player Development Manager

I chose TaylorMade because I know their commitment to performance and people is second to none. I’m looking forward to being on the team for years to come.John Pak
