Companies like Odyssey Ping Scotty Cameron and TaylorMade produce fantastic flatsticks But it’s also true that there are some smaller lesser-known manufacturers who also make some really terrific putters.
The Mini Driver which TaylorMade offered in SLDR and AeroBurner models was a very cool product. It nicely bridged the gap between a driver and fairway wood. For a lot of players that was a perfect fit as the added loft and shorter shaft of the Mini gave them exactly what they needed.
Aimed at low-handicappers and pros the 919 Tour model replaces the 900 Tour a.k.a. the Brooks Koepka model and features an improved shape with a bit thinner topline that the many Tour players who game the iron prefer. A new more durable Pearl Brush finish reduces glare while providing a bit more refined look than the previous matte finish.
A slightly rounded toe shape and wider area in the front of the shoe improve traction and comfort while foam sockliners mold to your feet for improved fit. The Sport BOOST 3 is also built with an “Energy Sling” design that helps direct energy transfer more efficiently.
Available in both white and yellow the new and improved Q-Star Tour ($30/dozen) golf balls are aimed at players with moderate clubhead speeds that desire Tour-like performance with a soft feel and lower price.
