Golf Monthly Verdict

This putter's face is huge. The black polymer insert has an unusual feel which made me wonder initially if I'd made solid contact. But I had and it rolled the ball beautifully. The titanium insert didn't feel quite as different as I'd expected but better suited my home club's greens right now. Will be experimenting further. Where next?

This large-headed MacGregor putter boasts a system that lets you switch between soft polymer and crisp titanium face plates according to course conditions and player preference. Its ingenious Distance Corrective Technology (DCT) is designed to minimise the damaging effects of off-centre contact by ensuring mis-hits travel the same distance as central strikes.
