Equipment: TaylorMade Ghost Spider S putter
TaylorMade says it's new Ghost Spider S putter is a revolution in mallet performance when it comes to control and feel.
Ghost Spider S delivers an off-the-charts MOI measurement of 6,030, dramatically higher than previous TaylorMade mallets like the Ghost Manta (4,900) and Corza Ghost (3,830). The exceptionally high MOI makes Ghost Spider S extremely stable on off-center hits, and it also makes it easier to control the head and square the face to the ball at impact, a key benefit that has been consistently called out by the Tour pros who have put it in play.
Ghost Spider S's multi-material head (aluminum and steel) combines a white-colored steel-frame perimeter and top-line with a new, tour-inspired, non-transition black crown. The contrast between the white leading edge and black crown makes it easier to focus your eyes on the topline, making it easier to aim accurately.
In addition to the standard hosel, the Ghost Spider S will also be available in a Tour-inspired "short slant" hosel designed for the player who swings on an arc. Unlike the standard hosel, which promotes a straight back-straight thru swing path, the short-slant is toe-weighted to broaden the scope of players who can benefit from the performance characteristics of the Ghost Spider S.
The Ghost Spider S standard model is available for a suggested retail price of US$179 in standard length and US$199 in a belly model. The Ghost Spider S featuring the "short slant" hosel will be available in December.
