What we say...

TaylorMade’s TP Red Collection Ardmore Putter made our top 10 mallet putters for 2018 in our biggest ever equipment test – Top Gear. Find out what our testers made of it below. 


TaylorMade TP Red Collection Ardmore Putter Review: You should know

Jason Day was the first to use a red putter and the ideas now taken the tour by storm. Red heightens contrast against a greens surface which TaylorMade say helps align the putter squarely. A skim milled 304 stainless steel head gives a sharp edged premium look. The Pure Roll aluminium face insert optimises forward roll and a wide body increases stability.

TaylorMade TP Red Collection Ardmore Putter Review: We say

Red putters are spreading like wild fire, and to make sure there’s a model for everyone TaylorMade have introduced a whole family of TP Red models for 2018. The Ardmore’s a wide stretched mallet but without the MOI enhancing fangs you get on the Ardmore 2. Our test pro loved how naturally the Ardmore’s lie got him into a position (with high hands) where he could rock his shoulders and putt really consistently.

Two long white sightlines make a ‘T’ shape with the putters face, which keeps setting up really simple and straight forward. The Ardmore’s big, bold and brash, and it’s painted finish may lack the class of a traditional milled head but boy does it have an air of confidence sat behind the ball. Two testers holed some serious putts with it.

Do putter face grooves really make a difference?

TaylorMade TP Red Collection Ardmore Putter Review: Verdict

A really good choice if you’re in the market for a red putter, but don’t want a wacky shaped MOI model. The aluminium insert gives decent feedback and roll, and because it’s slightly firmer than some we reckon it would at home year-round on UK greens.
