Yes! Golf C-Groove putters named after significant others, and others
A Mr. Richard Fader from Fort Lee, New Jersey, writes:
“It is my understanding that the Yes putters models are named for the Tour Players wifes [sic]. Can you confirm this and provide a list? Your help is most appreciated.”
Well Mr. Fader, according to Dave Richardson of Yes! Golf, some of the models are indeed named after Tour wives (some of whom are also models themselves). Richardson writes:
“[A]ctually it all started with Retief Goosen’s wife Tracy. After that the names came from various children or wives of employees or players.”
We haven’t been able to track down a definitive list yet (but stay tuned).
If you haven’t seen the Yes! C-Groove putters, then you’re missing what is arguably the fastest-growing putter on the market. I’ve talked to three different pro shop managers in the past month, all of whom say they can’t keep these various odd-looking flatsticks on the shelves.
The “C” in C-Groove stands for concentric grooves, and refers to the upside-down semi-circle of grooves on the sweet-spot of the putter face. The company claims that this creates six times more forward roll at impact than other putters.
I’ll be reviewing the newest model soon (the putter, not the Tour wife – although I’m open to suggestive suggestions…), so we’ll see if it performs as billed for us.
