Heavy Putter by Boccieri Golf is slimming down
If you aren’t familiar with Heavy Putter, the moniker is accurate: It is truly heavy. The philosophy is that by increasing the weight of the putter, you need to use your “big” muscles to make a stroke. Consequently, your hands and wrists—your “little” muscles—stay out of the way.
And when it comes to putting, big muscles are good, little muscles are bad.
Now, though, Heavy Putter is introducing a series of slimmed-down models, the aptly-named Mid-Weight Series (MSRP $169). The Mid-Weights tip the scales at 750 grams, compared to 900 grams for the original models and a measly 500 grams for your typical putter.
So it’s still got some heft behind it, but perhaps not enough to fatigue your forearms and wrists during those extended practice sessions.
The new design might just make golf’s “Biggest Loser"* into its biggest winner this year.
[*For those of you fortunate enough to have missed the awful, terrible, horrible TV reality show by this name, where obese people compete to lose weight, now you may consider yourselves enlightened, or tainted, depanding on how you look at it.]
