What we say...
TaylorMade's TP Patina Putter Collection, features seven distinct models each designed to combine the looks of the past with the tech of today.
All seven models – three blades and four mallets – in the TP Patina Collection feature a new Pure Roll insert and a naturally tarnishing “patina” black nickel and copper finish.
The thicker 5mm aluminum Pure Roll insert is engineered to bring the 45° grooves into direct contact with the ball, helping the ball start and stay on its intended line.
New signature TP screws securely fasten the insert to the face, and TaylorMade say voids and air pockets beneath the insert are minimised, creating an improved feel on impact.
The entire TP Patina Collection is available in 34in and 35in lengths in both RH & LH models. Each putter comes equipped stock with a KBS CT Taper Stepless Chrome Putter shaft and a SuperStroke Pistol GT 1.0 grip. RRP £239.
TP Patina Collection
The Blades: Soto, Juno & Del Monte
The three blade-style putters in the TP Patina Putter Collection, Soto, Juno and new Del Monte all feature a clean build with a single sightline on the back cavity. Each blade putter is complete with a Pure Roll insert designed to give golfers optimised stability, control and feel. As with every putter in TaylorMade's TP Collection, the naming convention for the putters within the patina range draw on inspiration from areas, regions and landmarks of some of the world's greatest golf destinations and historic courses
Soto: A smooth appearance at address with 47° of toe hang and a full shaft offset.
Juno: Shaped with squared contours, Juno’s appearance is complete with 36° of toe hang and a full shaft offset.
Del Monte: With a single sightline on the back cavity, the Del Monte features a slight toe hang of 8° and a firm feeling on impact.
The Mallets: Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3 & DuPage
The mallet options for the Patina Collection are equally as impressive with four options including the Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3 and the new DuPage. Each mallet putter is constructed with a Pure Roll insert designed to give golfers optimised stability, control and feel.
Ardmore 1: A face-balanced mallet designed with dual cavity sightlines and one top sightline. A full shaft offset intended to promote a linear stroke.
Ardmore 2: With double cavity sightlines for a straight back, straight through stroke; features a face balanced toe hang and single bend hosel.
Ardmore 3: Incorporating 42° of toe hang on a short slant hosel with a single cavity sightline, the Ardmore 3 completes the Ardmore line up.
DuPage: An all-new take on the traditional mallet design incorporating a single bend, face balanced design.
Verdict: TaylorMade TP Patina Del Monte
We’re big fans of wide body blades as they give a more friendly appearance than narrow models.
The Patina Collection didn’t create too many waves when it launched last year, but the Del Monte is a lovely wide model that offers excellent feel and sound, as well as a beautiful aged finish. It also created more topspin than any blade on test.
