Grooves in the Putter Face.

dragon logo dark

There has been some discussion recently about milled grooves in the face of putters. I have read that these grooves can actually impart small amounts of back-spin on the ball, which could prevent the ball from reaching the hole. Especially with 3 or 4 degree loft putter which initially lift the ball as well. The resulting check could also take the ball off-line when it lands back onto the putting surface.

At White Dragon Golf we have produced a putter that imparts top spin on the ball, this keeps the ball rolling on it’s intended path. Top spin will also assist in keeping the speed of the ball, enabling it to reach the cup. There is nothing worse than a short putt, never up, never in, is the saying.

A ball with top spin, that starts the ball rolling earlier has a better chance of staying on line, this is physics.  The forward momentum created by starting a golf ball rolling earlier will keep it rolling smoothly, unless acted upon by some outside force. If the ball starts by skidding, as it will from back-spin, there is no momentum until the ball contacts the ground, checks first then  starts to rotate forward.

There are varying degree’s of loft available in putters, but White Dragon Golf is the only manufacturer with a negative loft of minus 3 degrees. This allows the putter face to strike the ball at of above the center line of the ball, creating top spin, ensuring the ball rolls smoothly on it’s intended path. A negative loft for a positive putt.

Balance is another factor to take into consideration, White Dragon Putters are fitted with graphite shafts, to custom lengths. These lightweight shafts allow the user to feel the weight of the putter head, which helps maintain your balance through-out the pendulum swing of a good putting stroke.

White Dragon also fit Winn Grips, to their putters, these are the best grips, which relaxing your hands and relieving tension in your arms. Click here to go to the website, be the first golfer in your club to buy a White Dragon. Act now and get free shipping.

Now you can buy your own version of Bubba Watson’s Ping G20 driver, complete with pink artwork. Demand for the pink G20 has been building since Bubba first used the club.

The money will be donated  to the “Bubba & Friends Drive to a Million.’ Ping will also donate 5 percent of the proceeds from the driver sales as well.

When announcing his charity initiative, which includes both his equipment sponsor Ping and his apparel sponsor Travis Mathew, Watson even referred to a Masters victory.

“This is not just about me trying to win golf tournaments or win a major.” But if I won Augusta this year it would be great, but how many drives did I hit over 300. How many outfits did we sell. That’s really the big thing. That’s what I want to be about. That’s what I’ve been trying to be about.”

Technologically the driver is the same as the regular G20 but boasts a pink clubhead ,that comes with a matching pink headcover and a bright pink shaft. The shaft is a high-balance-point Ping TFC 169D labeled, “Bubba Long in Pink. Driven by PING. Special Edition 2012.” The pink G20 will be available in regular, stiff and ladies flexes and in lofts of 9.5, 10.5 and 12 degrees. A 10.5-degree model is available for lefties and a 12-degree version in women’s. The MSRP on the club is $430. The actual pink shaft on Watson’s driver is a Grafalloy BiMatrx, and his loft is 8.5 degrees.

Golf World Cup China

According to reports the two golf powerhouses of golf in China are to arrange a meeting to try and stop a prize money contest in China. Tenniel Chu a golf tycoon is worried about upsetting the worlds golfing authorities by staging non sanctioned events and attracting top golfers with high dollar appearance money offers, let alone the massive total prize money.

TENNIEL Chu has called for a cap on prizemoney in China to safeguard the sport’s traditions after a sudden surge in rich tournaments threatened to spark a purse war.

The golf tycoon was speaking after an extraordinary month, when players visiting China took home $US19.5 million ($19.55m) in prizemoney, including golf’s biggest winner’s cheque, along with millions of dollars in appearance fees.

“The last thing we want is to blow up expectations, given the (recent) appearance fees and purses,” Chu, whose family owns China’s Mission Hills golf resorts, said during last week’s World Cup at Hainan Island, won by the US team of Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland. “China has deep pockets but the last thing we want to do is to raise financial expectations to levels which are non-proportional to tradition and established events.”


I was very interested to hear that Ping have stored away in a vault 2600 gold putters. As we are a golf equipment company ourselves, I think it is great idea.

Ping (of the famous Ping Golf Clubs) have gone overboard with the idea of golden putters. Apparently, for every Ping putter that produces a win on tour, the company creates a gold plated version of the same model that was used by the player.

Over the years, this has meant that over 2,600 Gold Plated putters and clubs have been created and they are all stored in the same vault. Golfing legend Seve Ballesteros alone is said to have a record 46 gold plated clubs inside the safe. While most of the clubs inside are putters, in 1986, Bob Tway holed a bunker shot see off the challenge of Greg Norman in the USPGA Championship – and Solheim honoured the shot by making a gold-plated wedge and storing it in the Putter Vault.
