Since there has been a lot of buzz after Hunter's win I wanted to give the Nome it's own thread
I've never been able to find success with a mallet, but I really like that they're going to build this with different strokes in mind. I would definitely be interested in trying this out in the strong arc design based on my feedback on the iPing app. Heck, I'd like to test all three out and see if my results match what they "should".
Also, good work by GPPGolf.com to spring into action and make them available. Not seeing it on Ping's website, let alone any retail sites.
Can anyone remember a putter getting this much attention during a big event? The announcers were talking about Mahan's putter all weekend. Amazing exposure.
Jack Nicklaus using a Mcgregor Response putter to win the 1986 Masters!
Putters seem like the clubs that can get the most attention. Matt Every's putter got some attention at the Sony and obviously Keegan Bradley when he won the PGA. But it's rare for the media to identify the putter by name like they have with the Nome imo. When the 2-ball came out it was huge.
Similar idea to the PING Sydney, but much more toned down. I got to hit some putts with it at the PGA Show, for a big mallet, I think it works, that white line really sticks out, more than maybe the pics illustrates
The white line on black is great for alignment, but I am not sure why the black aluminum part has is so complicated looking. The curves and cutouts are distracting. This could be a great looking putter if they took away the styling and simplified the shapes. Ping has someone on their design team that is a stylist, and is making their putters look a little Craz-E.
