How Goosen Got His Groove Back

Retief Goosen literally got his groove back on Sunday, wielding his trusty Yes! Tracy C-Groove putter to victory at the Transitions Championship on Sunday.

The Yes! Tracy is the same putter with which Goosen won the U.S. Open in 2004 and 2001, yet Goosen hasn’t exactly been monogamous when it comes to flatsticks, especially lately. 

However, he recently returned to his first love, the Tracy, and the results speak for themselves. 

How solid was Goosen’s putting performance throughout the tournament? He sank 55 out of 55 putts from five feet and in, and 62 out of 64 from 10 feet and in. He holed a five-footer to clinch the victory, netting $972,000 in the process.

Goosen doesn’t get a dime from Yes! for playing its putter—but when a flatstick helps you win majors and millions, you probably don’t care about that. 

Yes! still offers its original Tracy model (pictured here), as well as two new iterations, the Tracy FC forged carbon steel putter, and the Tracy III Plus featuring an interchangeable hosel. Other new Yes! models for 2009 include the Yes! Dawn blade putter and the Yes! Jennie mid-mallet putter.

All Yes! putters feature the company’s proprietary C-Groove technology, which consists of concentric face grooves designed to impart immediate topspin and truer roll. Click here for PutterZone.com’s recent interview with Yes! Golf’s Blair Philip.

  1. I play a Yes! Callie Forged Carbon since something more than 2 years. It is the absolute best feel I have found even comparing to other mayor brands. Especially with the softer Tour balls the sound and feel is superb.

    Not only Retief is putting better with that Yes! putter. My pupils love it and they fly of the shelf. Thanks to everyone at Yes! Golf for their great work and product.

  2. YES! golf Just introduced a new Internal shaft weighting system that Cink has been using. 9 LPGA players using YES! putters are also using this weighting system.
