TaylorMade-adidas Golf has debuted the new Ghost Tour Black Series putters, which the company says is inspired by its “four most classic shapes’’ and updated with a new deep-milled aluminum insert.
The Ghost Tour Black series, already in play on various tours worldwide, is comprised of two blade styles: Daytona and Indy, as well as two mallet styles: Maranello and Monte Carlo. The design of each putter was overseen by Clay Long, TMaG’s director of putter product creation and one of the industry’s more respected club designers. Among his most noted design accomplishments, Long designed the oversized (for the time) MacGregor Response putter Jack Nicklaus used to win the 1986 Masters.
TMaG says each Ghost Tour Black putter features a rich, dark glare-resistant PVD coating, designed to deflect the sun’s rays and deliver a visually attractive design to complement the line’s performance features. The contrasting white line on the trailing edge, according to TMaG, forms an alignment and a race-inspired paint schematics add a sleek appearance.
In addition to the new matte black finish, highlighting the Ghost Tour Black series is the introduction of a deep-milled 6061 aluminum insert that TMaG says delivers a “crisp, clean feel’’ off the putter face and a smooth, accurate roll.
Each model carries a suggested retail price of $139.99 USD for the standard version and $159.99 for the upgraded version with Super Stroke grip.
