As previously stated, putting is the single most important aspect of any players’ golf game (See ARTICLE Link here). So if we focus on putting like the pros, then we should look at what equipment the Tour players are using.
Here you will find a select list of some of the most popular Tour players and their putter of choice
[**Disclaimer: This list is obviously subject to change at any moment based on the player’s endorsement deals or how well they are playing the greens 😉].
Jon Rahm – Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie S
Rahm’s Rossie S is a toe hang mallet. These toe hang clubs are suited for strokes with face rotation and arc. White Hot is considered by Odyssey to be the most iconic, most played, and most decorated putter insert of all time.
Phil Mickelson – Odyssey Milled Blade (PM)
Lefty sticks with a good old-fashioned blade putter. Opposite of Phil’s short-game, his putter is pretty straightforward and without frills.
Dustin Johnson & Jason Day – TaylorMade Spider Tour
This putter has perimeter weighting for added stability and a removed sightline to zero in the player’s focus. The Spider Tour Red is meant to give confidence to all levels of golfers to allow them to drain putts all over the green..
“The Spider consistently started the ball on the line that I wanted it to, which is something I struggled with in my other putter. I have never made so many putts over 10 feet than I did at the BMW Championship and I ended up winning the tournament because of the putts I made.” — Dustin Johnson
Collin Morikawa – TyalorMade TP Juno
Juno is also a blade-style putter designed to give exceptional feel. Juno’s simple appearance reflects its precise construction with a short, single sightline on top to give very easy alignment, while two 10g weights in the sole aid in the putter’s overall stability. Juno also features a slight toe hang and a full shaft offset to fit the stroke of golfers who prefer to release the toe through impact.
Justin Thomas – Scotty Cameron X 5.5
The 5.5 is designed to promote a blade-like feel with the stability of a mallet. The sight line provides alignment, while the aesthetic is meant to give the feeling of high-end luxury and pristine craftsmanship.
Brooks Koepka – Scotty Cameron Newport 2
One of our favorites:
“Arguably the most famous putter head shape in the world, with scores of professional titles won.” The Newport 2 blade features a flatter, narrower topline, a redesigned plumbing neck, performance balanced tungsten sole weights for a larger sweet spot and enhanced stability, as well as a soft tri-sole design for effortless setup
Tony Finau – Ping PLD Anser 2
The Answer 2 gives a slightly longer and narrower profile with sharper corners than its predecessor, but shares its clean geometries. A center alignment line makes aiming easy with a stable and forgiving stroke.
Patrick Cantlay – Scotty Cameron Phantom X5
The Phantom X 5 is a complete redesign from the prior Scotty C. stock. The X5 is configured to be face balanced for stability through the stroke, with a milled 303 stainless steel face is carried through to the body and wings, integrated with an aluminum sole plate and stainless steel sole weights. This is the gold-standard of the newer ‘mid-mallet’ category.
Rory McIlroy – TaylorMade Spider X Hydro Blast
When you combine the Fluted Feel shaft with the all-new Pure Roll insert and True Path with three dot alignment, the result is confidence you can feel. Introducing the new Spider EX, designed for easy aim, better feel and enhanced stability.
Bryson DeChambeau – Sik Pro C Armlock
The Pro C-Series Armlock is the putter that Bryson used to win 5 times on the PGA Tour, 1 on the European Tour from 2017-2019. The head weighs 370 grams with the Armlock-Plumber’s Neck. The advantage of the armlock is multifaceted but the main benefit is increased face control. We orientate our JMX/SIK grip parallel to the putter face for maximum contact points, ensuring a stable and square setup from address through impact.
