We already reviewed the TM Tour Ghost putter on our site but with the release of the TaylorMade Tour Ghost Spider we had to see what this combination putter was all about. A mix between the ’08 Monza Spider and the ’10 Corza Ghost. Resurrecting the spider line after 3 years TaylorMade made some necessary adjustments to their popular putter series. They knew they wanted to go white because of those white ghost putters, demonstrating that it were easier to aim with than black, chrome or metallic putters.
What we liked about the new TaylorMade Tour Ghost Spider Putter was the moveable weights and the alignment features. A little bit about the weights: there are two weights located in the back of the putter which allow players to make the head heavier or lighter depending on how you want to customize it. We really liked the Pure Roll Surlyn Insert, performed great on the green, good, smooth forward roll. Another fun feature of this putter is the option to have a single-bend shaft or with a straight shaft that goes straight to the center of the face.
This putter has already received a warm reception on Tour as well. Jason Day, the Australian golfer making huge plays at this years majors so far finishing T2 and 2nd on the leaderboard. Developed by a Tour staff professional (Dave Stockton) it certainly lives up to their standards. “We’ve never made a putter that combines this kind of forgiveness and ease of use. Putting is all about confidence, and the Ghost Spider promotes confidence, big time,” says Stockton.
