David Whitlam is one of the best putter designers working today. Ask just about anybody who loves putters, and chance are they know Whitlam (founder of Gauge Design Golf) and his designs, which blend art and performance.
Whitlam’s latest creation is the Code M Mallet putter featuring Gauge Design’s patented brick sole design. The Code M putter, according to Whitlam, is precision milled from a solid piece of 11L17 mild carbon steel and then electroplated and finished in satin black PVD. The heel-toe weighted design of the Code M is face-balanced, which helps reduce twisting and adds greater head stability resulting in improved consistency on every putt.
“At Gauge Design Golf, we take pride in producing the best possible milled putters we can,” Whitlam said. “This beauty is milled out of a very soft carbon for amazing feel. It also features our unique brick sole mill pattern which gives it a fantastic look. With a combination of looks, feel, and performance, golfers can’t go wrong with this putter.”
The Code M Putter (suggested retail price $350) is available in center shafted or double-bend heel shafted versions. It includes a Gauge Design Black Ion grip and the company’s standard head cover and comes standard with a 71-degree lie, 3.5-degree loft, and 355-gram head weight. It is available in lengths from 34 to 36 inches.
