The putter which propelled Rory McIlory’s sensational start to the season, including his win at The Players, is now available in the UK. TaylorMade’s new Spider X line, the 10th generation of the Spider putter, features a new True Path alignment system along with a new weighting system, which includes aluminium (2g), steel (6g) and tungsten (12g) options. The new alignment system has been developed using 10,000 pieces of data from a series of 12ft putts. Results showed that golfers strike the ball toward the toe of the putter 66% of the time. As a result, the putter head has been re-engineered while introducing a new alignment system – True Path – for easier alignment, leading to more putts struck on the centre of the face.
