Bettinardi had its winningest year on Tour in 2018
Bettinardi Golf, the Tinley Park, Ill.-based putter manufacturer, has introduced a varied line of putters for 2019. Bettinardi is coming off its winningest year on Tour, and used that growth to add four new CNC machines to its facility. Amateurs will benefit from the resulting boost in research and development as Bettinardi Golf provides access to its Tour-proven designs.
The company has remained true to its mission of designing, 100 percent precision milling and assembling Bettinardi equipment in its own manufacturing facility. It’s among the only OEM golf companies to produce a 100 percent American-made putter.
“These new putters have been proven on the game’s biggest stage, along with being significantly tested at our headquarters to produce the best range we have ever had,” said Robert Bettinardi, CEO and Founder.
“Moving into our 20th anniversary of production next year, we look back on this year with huge satisfaction thanks to victories across the PGA and European Tours, plus the fantastic major win (Francesco Molinari, Open Championship). But, we also pride ourselves on producing a range that is suitable for every golfer, from the elite pro to the enthusiastic amateur.”
The Studio Stock and Queen B products are detailed below:
Studio Stock Series
This series is a brand new line Bettinardi is introducing for 2019. It features the SS2, SS28 Slot Back (Center-Shaft and Arm-Lock option) B, and SS38 models made from the extremely durable 303 stainless steel base metal, and given the softest face milling in the company’s history from new CNC-Machining advancements and techniques perfected over the last 20 years. Francesco Molinari put that soft-face milling into play in his Open Championship victory.
This model returns to the Studio Stock Series after undergoing aesthetic and performance enhancements. Milled from a solid block of 303 stainless steel, the hosel has been positioned slightly forward toward the toe, which gives the SS2 slightly less toe than our traditional blade style putters. The raised shoulders and newly-rounded bumpers distribute great weight displacement for ideal perimeter weighting and a fresh appearance at address.
SS28 Slot Back
This design is intended to offer a crossover between blade and mini-mallet putters. Robert Bettinardi consulted his PGA Tour staff throughout the process of refining this model by finely milling a slot in the rear flange in order to frame the ball perfectly and allow for maximum forgiveness at impact. The SS28 SB was engineered with a single bend shaft and square profile with greater perimeter weighting and higher MOI characteristics, with feedback from major champions.
An all-new and engineered design with the idea to bring a more rounded, compact, cavity-back mallet to the SS line, with high MOI, forgiveness and easy alignment. A hand-polished platinum finish gives the SS38 a durable and cleaner appearance with its single-bend shaft and minimal toe hang.
Queen B Series
The latest Queen B range includes the re-engineered QB5 and QB6, plus the all-new QB10, and features the exclusive Bettinardi Micro Honeycomb Face milling, allowing for a muted-yet-crisp feel at impact for players looking for constant speed and feel. This is a model that has benefitted considerably from Tour feedback.
Queen B 5
The Queen B 5 makes its return to the lineup as one of the more sought-after blades Robert Bettinardi has produced. Bettinardi has advanced his popular head shape with subtle yet essential improvements including cleaner lines, tighter milled radiuses and softer bumpers. The distinctive appearance of the QB5 represents the Queen B Series as a whole quite well with its 362-gram head weight, trademark Micro Honeycomb face milling, and Champagne Silver finish.
Queen B 6
The Queen B 6 putter is a good fit for a player seeking an elegant crossover between blade and mallet, with the refined characteristics of Bettinardi’s latest Queen B Series addition. This soft carbon steel putter features a high toe topline, wide body and flange, and newly crafted one shaft of offset for ideal balance and superior visualization at address. Micro Honeycomb face milling gives even the most discerning players the desired feel and feedback at impact.
Queen B 10
Robert Bettinardi designs and crafts all his putters with the true player in mind, often putting a premium on feedback and research from the world’s top golfers. From prototype to reality, the entirely new Queen B 10 is refined for the player seeking a rounded, traditional mallet with softer visual cues and supreme performance benefits with its Micro Honeycomb milled face. Precisely milled to weigh 362 grams, the QB10 features Bettinardi’s trademark crescent milled neck for ideal offset and optimal toe hang in a one-piece milled mallet.
