PING Vault Bergen

PING Vault Bergen

Inspired by the renowned Gold Putter Vault, PING has gone back to the future to offer the new Vault series. Players will experience improved touch and speed control with the patented True Roll face technology. This technology offers individually milled face patterns that vary in depth and pitch across the face, which speeds up off-centre impacts.

The body of the Bergen putter is milled from 6061 T-6 aluminium on-site in PING’s machine shop, where craftsmen oversee every precise detail, including the milling of the TR face technology. This putter also offers improved stability and roll characteristics through the stainless steel bottom weighting, which boosts MOI and lowers the CG. This putter also features a double-bend shaft that can be adjusted to match either a slight arc or straight stroke type. Available in a Platinum or Slate finish.

TaylorMade TP – Mullen and Berwick

TaylorMade Mullen

The new TaylorMade TP collection is inspired by the likes of Jason Day and Dustin Johnson and features a new Pure Roll insert to improve roll. The insert combines 45° grooves with a soft polymer to promote a superior forward roll and reduce skidding across varying surfaces. The Pure Roll insert has been engineered to bring the grooves into direct and active contact with the ball during impact.

The Mullen and Berwick putters in this series make up the classic mallet tour proven models of the TP Collection. The Mullen boasts and more compact mallet design with two sightlines on the back cavity and a short “S” hosel that allows for a slight toe hang of 38 degrees. The Berwick model is your more traditional rounded mallet shape with a thicker topline and a single sightline on the back cavity. This putter also features a slight step-down cavity and a single bend ¾ shaft offset to create a face-balanced hang. Finally, both mallets feature two 5 gram weights in the sole.
