When Jason Day started putting with the new TaylorMade Ghost Spider – and climbing up the leaderboard – we were eager to put this new putter to the test.

While it looks like something out of Star Trek, we found the putter to be beautifully balanced, and, surprisingly, not at all distracting at address.  Its large size is perfect for the golfer who prefers a mallet-type putter, and the “basketball court” system of alignment on the crown really help to keep the face square at impact.

One of the more exciting features of the putter is the PURE ROLL insert, which helps reduce skidding and promote forward spin of the ball. We really like this feature, as it helped create a smoother, more accurate roll.  And while the “clicking” sound at impact feels a bit foreign at first – and the distance control takes a bit of practice – once you have it all ‘dialled in’, you will definitely see some improvement in your putting.

We really love this putter, and rate it very highly.

The putter is available in single-bend and center-shafted models in the 33″, 34″ and 35″ stock lengths, left- and right-handed. A mid-length “belly” version is available in 41″ and 43″ stock lengths. RRP: $209 Std / $229 Belly
