THE CLUB TO KNOW: Mizuno OMOI Putter

By reducing each putter’s shaft and grip weight, and adding up to 28g into the head, Mizuno says golfers get a more stable putter to encourage more consistent strokes. The OMOI 01 is a slant neck bladed putter with a sleek design similar to the classic Ping Anser shape, while the OMOI 02 has a longer blade length. The OMOI 03, meanwhile, is a mallet-style putter, which will suit anyone in need of a little help to improve strike and roll. All three models are available in nickel, bold blue or intense black.
