When Brian Gay seemingly came out of nowhere by winning the Verizon Heritage Classic by an astounding 10 shots on Sunday, he did it with a secret weapon in his bag: a Mizuno Bettinardi D.A.S.S. (for Double Aged Stainless Steel) C-03 model putter.
Brian Gay’s Bettinardi Putter
Gay’s putter features a modified F.I.T. face (for Feel Impact Technology) which is found on the Mizuno Bettinardi Black Carbon putter line. The putter is therefore a bit of a hybrid between the Black Carbon line and the earlier Mizuno Bettinardi C-Series putters.
PutterZone.com reached out to Robert Bettinardi, who confirmed that he has been working closely with Gay on fine tuning all of the elements of the putter.
“It was nice to see Brian pull away with a convincing win,” Bettinardi said. “We have been working with Brain over the last couple of months on his putter and we felt that we had provided him with the best instrument possible.”
P.S. The Mizuno Bettinardi Black Carbon BC4 recently earned a Gold Award in PutterZone.com’s 2009 Power Picks.
