TaylorMade’s TP Collection putters have an insert made for better feel
Inspired by the insert used by Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, TaylorMade Golf has released a TP Collection line of putters consisting of models that feature 303 stainless steel construction for solid feel and skim-milled machining for exacting contours.
The collection utilizes new materials and milling processes to enhance aesthetics and improve performance, in addition to employing TaylorMade’s new Pure Roll insert that combines 45-degree grooves with a softer polymer to promote better forward roll and reduce skidding across varying surfaces. The composition and construction of the insert is engineered to bring the grooves into direct and active contact with the ball during impact, even on short putts. The grooves in the face also serve in part to strategically soften the insert’s structure.
The naming convention for TP Collection putters draws inspiration from areas, regions and landmarks of some of the world’s greatest golf destinations and historic courses:
Juno and Soto are blade putters with heel-toe weighting for optimized balance, control and feel. The Juno (first played by Sergio Garcia at the Ryder Cup) features longer squared off contours, a single sightline on top and pads with fine linear machine lines. The Soto retains short, rounded and soft edges with a single sightline in the back cavity. Each blade-style model comes stock with a plumber’s neck hosel, with the Soto’s scalloped hosel being slightly lighter. Both heads feature two 10-gram moveable weights in the sole for swing weight customization.
The Mullen and Berwick putters are mallet models of the TP Collection. Mullen has a 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. Berwick has a more traditional rounded mallet shape with a thicker topline and single sightline on the back cavity. Berwick also includes a slight step-down cavity and a single bend three-quarter shaft offset to create a face-balanced hang. Both mallets feature two 5-gram moveable weights in the sole for swing weight customization.
