In the end, the recently concluded US Open staged at Merion Golf Club resembled the Opens of yesteryear during which brutal rough and nasty greens eliminated pretenders first, then contenders, until there was just one guy left. What’s remarkable is that the “one guy” who conquered the treacherous Merion greens and the USGA’s diabolical hole placements was Justin Rose, a guy who just weeks ago ranked 158th in putting on the PGA Tour. What changed? Well, Justin Rose switched to a 34” TaylorMade Spider Blade Putter at the Player’s Championship in May, and then switched again at the Memorial, opting for a 37” version of the same model. The results were that he ranked 13th in putting at the US Open. That huge leap in the putting stats, arguably, made the difference between winning a Major title and, well, not winning one.

 

The TaylorMade Spider Blade is the highest MOI blade putter ever produced by TaylorMade, delivering twist-resistance comparable to high-MOI mallet putters. TaylorMade also incorporated “counterbalancing” properties first introduced with their Daddy Long Legs mallet putter. The idea behind counterbalancing is to offer increased stability through additional weight in the shaft and butt end of the putter. You’re going to see a lot of counterbalancing in putter design in the near future because it is said to offer stability similar to an “anchored” putting stroke, which the USGA has banned effective 2016. Consequently, those who struggle a bit on the greens are looking for a new method, and the major club manufacturers will most assuredly accommodate through innovation. Even if you don’t struggle, you can always improve on the greens.

 

So, if you are looking for a way to make more putts, take a page from the playbook of Justin Rose, the number 3 player in the world and newly-minted Major Champion, and give the TaylorMade Spider Blade a try.  You may just win your own version of the US Open.
