Player name: Chris | Occupation: Registered Nurse | Age: 34 | Handicap: 10 | Current Putter: Mizuno MP T-105
Looks: “Fairly large, it’s almost the size of my palm. The face is pretty interesting… it’s just a bunch of grooves.”
Feel: “Pretty good putter, I usually use a mallet myself. [the ball] came off the face pretty soft, probably because of the insert and the material. Ping went with a thicker grip… it helped it a little bit. The thing I didn’t like, was more so, the weight.”
Alignment: “Three alignment lines… one long one, and two shorter ones. It was pretty easy to align.”
Control: “Nothing to worry about if you actually hit off-centre. It was easy to gauge the distance. The grooves were all the same depth. I found my strokes were just straight back and forth”

Looks: “Matte black finish. Ping have added a new grip… last year’s was a cord, this one has a flat contour.”
Feel: “I found this putter a bit light. The ball comes off very soft on the stroke.”
Alignment: “Alignment is quite the strong point for this putter.”
Control: “It’s forgiveness is good because of the true-roll technology on the insert.”
