  • Bettinardi Releases New ArmLock Putter

    Award Winning Studio Stock Lineup gets Mallet Armlock

     

    Bettinardi Golf, known for their world class putters, which are precision milled in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility just outside of Chicago, IL, has extended their Studio Stock line to include the Studio Stock 38 Armlock. The SS38 Armlock, milled from a solid block of 303 stainless steel, will now offer amateur golfers alike a high performing, compact mallet in an Armlock style putter. The SS38 joins the SS28 Slotback as the 2nd Armlock option in the Golf Digest Gold winning 2019 Studio Stock Series.

    Bettinardi Golf pioneered the Armlock technology in 2013 with Robert J. Bettinardi and his work alongside brand advocate Matt Kuchar, a 9-time PGA Tour winner. Kuchar, who was looking for ways to become a more consistent putter after winning the PGA Tour money title in 2010, turned to Robert to become his go-to source for his most trusted club in the bag. Over the last 9 months on the PGA Tour, the Armlock technique of putting has won eight times including two by Matt Kuchar, creating a surge in demand and interest in the unique style.

    “The Beauty of the Armlock style of putting is that it takes out any unwanted wrist and hand motion in the putting stroke, and putts an emphasis on the upper body in order to swing it more consistently under pressure when it matters most”, said Sam Bettinardi, Vice President of Bettinardi Golf. “We are very proud to have been the first company in golf to introduce the Armlock method of putting 6 years ago with Bettinardi Brand Advocate Matt Kuchar, and will continue promoting and investing in this method by adding the SS38 as a new mallet option”.

     

    The Studio Stock 38 Armlock mallet putter was crafted from the finest 303 Stainless Steel, and precision milled to a 400-gram head weight with Bettinardi’s patented Major winning F.I.T. Face Milling. The SS38 was engineered to be a more rounded, compact, cavity-back mallet to offer players high MOI, forgiveness, and easy alignment. Completed in a stunning hand-polished platinum finish, the SS38 is extremely durable and offers a clean appearance with its single-bend look with one shaft of offset, and minimal toe hang. The SS38 Armlock will be paired with a 15” Deep Etched Cord Grip by Lamkin and a premium matching headcover.

  • Another Victory for Kuchar and Bettinardi Golf at The Sony Open

    Clutch Putting Down the Stretch Lifts Kuchar to Second Win of The 2019 PGA Season

    Using his custom Tour Dept. KM-1 (Kuchar Model 1) Armlock model from the specialist milled putter manufacturer based in Tinley Park, Illinois, Matt Kuchar poured in clutch putt after clutch putt on the back 9 of Wai’alae Country for a final round 66, and lifting him to win the 2019 Sony Open. The Sony Open was Kuchar’s second win in three starts to open the 2018-2019 PGA Tour season, 9th overall PGA Tour victory, and his 100th top 10 finish of his career.

    “Matt played terrific golf all week, and really came through in the clutch on the back 9 of Wai’alae Country Club, to secure his 2nd PGA win in only three starts”, said Sam Bettinardi, Vice President of Bettinardi Golf. “Matt’s putting only got better with added pressure, as he continues to prove why he is one of the best American players in the game of golf.”
    The 40-year-old carded 24-birdies for the tournament and had a 7.038 strokes gained putting, which was fourth best in the field this week. With the win, Kuchar jumped to 22nd in the Official World Golf Rankings and second in the Fedex Cup standings. Matt is the first two-time winner of the season.

    “My putter remained hot all week and having made so many birdies, I knew it wouldn’t let me down at the end,” said Kuchar, who before we won in Mexico, saw his last victory come at the 2014 RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina. “To win again, two out of three starts is crazy to comprehend,” said Kuchar.

    Kuchar designed his 40.5” Soft Carbon Steel KM-1 putter with F.I.T. Face Technology together with master craftsman Bob Bettinardi. It features a 19” long custom Lamkin Armlock grip that he locks parallel to his left forearm for a more stable putting stroke – known as the Armlock. The pair have worked together since 2011 and Bettinardi is the only equipment manufacturer to offer an Armlock model to all golfers.

    “It was Matt’s idea to try the Armlock method,” said Bob Bettinardi. “He wanted something to take the small muscles out of his putting stroke and after testing, he settled on the Model 1, because he wanted a blade-style putter with a wider body to give him a better view of the sightline when pressing forward,” he added.

    The win is Bettinardi’s 1st of 2019, following an impressive 2018 season that included a company record 10 professional victories, including their third Major Championship title at The Open at Carnoustie in July 2018. Bettinardi’s growing Tour Staff includes Matt Kuchar, Eddie Pepperell, Haotong Li, Ben Silverman, Jim Herman, and Fred Couples. Bettinardi Golf is one of the fastest-growing equipment brands in golf, and has become increasingly popular for its hand-crafted putters made in the USA from a single piece of high-quality steel.

    EP

    British Masters champion no longer has to buy his Bettinardi putters!

    Bettinardi Golf has signed Eddie Pepperell, one of Europe’s brightest Tour stars, who 20 months ago purchased a Studio Stock 8 putter from his local stockist in Thame, Oxfordshire.

    Since putting the putter into play in April 2017, Eddie has moved from 513 to 38 in the world rankings and captured two European Tour titles, winning in style at the Qatar Masters and British Masters events this year. He has also achieved an impressive 14 top 10 finishes after switching to a Bettinardi putter. “I've tried a number of putters and time and time again, it's the one model I keep coming back to" said Eddie. “Positively I wont have to buy a Bettinardi putter again, but having bought four putters from Core Golf, I'm just hoping I haven't put them out of business as a result!" he added.

    The popular Englishman with a large social media following, contributed to a total of 10 victories for Bettinardi Tour players last season, including Open champion and Europe’s No.1 player Francesco Molinari. Other standout performances with Bettinardi putters last season came from China’s top-ranked player Haotong Li and long-term brand ambassador Matt Kuchar.

    “We’re really excited to welcome Eddie to the Bettinardi Tour staff, especially given his obvious love of the putters and willingness as a Tour professional to invest in what he saw as the best premium product to improve his game,” said Executive Vice President, Sam Bettinardi.

    “Once Eddie stayed ahead of a strong field at the British Masters to win his second Tour title of the year with a Bettinardi putter, we decided to reopen negotiations and we’re delighted with the outcome. It means that we now have another top 50 player in the world playing Bettinardi putters and can look forward to the 2019 season with a great line up of star players, each using a different model,” added Sam.

    Francesco Molinari won his first Major, first PGA Tour event and the BWM PGA Championship with a Double-Aged Stainless Steel (DASS) BBZero Tour model with FIT Face Milling. Haotong Li used a custom Studio Stock 3 Tour Edition putter to win Omega Dubai Desert Classic in January, before switching to a custom Tour Soft Carbon BBZero, while Matt Kuchar used his ever-reliable ArmLock method (Tour Dept. DASS KM-Model) to win in Mexico recently.

    Since the brand was established in 1998, Bettinardi putters have secured more than 80 victories around the world across all professional Tours. As well as BB-Series and Studio Stock lines, the new Bettinardi line-up of putters for 2019 also includes the eye-catching Queen B #6 putter, used to win the LPGA Season Finale just three weeks ago. It is designed for the player seeking an elegant crossover between a blade and mallet.
