GEL Golf have joined forces with top sports biomechanist and putting coach Dr Paul Hurrion to design an impressive new range of putters.
The new GEL Paul Hurrion signature putter range incorporates the groove and insert technology of the standard GEL Groove Putter range along with 10 years of research and development by Hurrion into the art and science of putting.
Hurrion’s biomechanical analysis of putting has shown that the performance of a golf ball during the start of its roll is the most crucial part to send the golf ball accurately towards the hole. He explains:
“All the testing that has been undertaken on putters proves that grooved putter faces produce greater grip with the golf ball at the moment of impact, therefore enhancing a putter’s ability to produce the desired topspin roll on the golf ball,”
Despite the serious science behind these new wands, these are really cool looking putters with bright coloured inserts and funky grips and we can’t wait to put them to the test in our magazine putter special this summer!
There are four different models in the new Paul Hurrion Signature Range as follows:
SEDO putter (Smooth)
A heel-toe, weighted blade with a goose neck and slight offset. Loft 3.0 degrees. Lie 73 degrees. Standard shaft length: 32″ to 35″. 431 stainless steel material. (370gm head weight)
