British Open Update: Sergio’s New Putter

So what’s that wild-looking flatstick that has helped Sergio Garcia tame his putting game and secure the top spot after two rounds at the 2007 British Open? It’s a prototype Rossa Corzina belly putter by TaylorMade.

Garcia’s struggles with putting are well documented. At one point earlier this year, he literally spit in the cup after three putting for a bogey, his frustration outpacing his judgment.

Garcia plucked his new putter from his father’s golf bag after the recent U.S. Open. He hadn’t played with a belly putter for several years, but he was ready for something different, resulting in a swift courtship and, so far, stunning results.

The Corzina belongs to TaylorMade’s Rossa Series. It features TaylorMade’s AGSI+ insert technology, inclusive of 14 closely positioned grooves designed to promote more efficient forward spin for a smoother roll. A wire-frame head construction combined with perimeter weighting create high MOI for enhanced forgiveness.

The belly version doesn’t appear to be available to the public, but you can pick up a standard-length model for $149. It may not win you the Claret Jug, but it could help you tame the greens, not to mention your temper.
