Yes, it’s true: a $69 putter just won on the PGA Tour.
When Jerry Kelly rallied on the back nine yesterday to win the Zurich Classic, he did it with a Cleveland Classic 3 putter in hand. Jerry Kelly’s putter costs just $69 at your local golf shop. It earned Kelly $1.1 million.
We can’t say we’re totally shocked. In an earlier review of the Cleveland Classic 1 putter, PutterZone.com concluded: “The Cleveland Classic 1 putter is a screamer of a steal at $69, boasting a smooth, buttery feel that far exceeds its price point.”
PutterZone.com also named the Cleveland Classic to the top of its 2009 Best Buys list.
It was also a good week for Cleveland’s sister brand, Never Compromise. Seven players teed up Never Compromise’s X-Ray putters at the Zurich Classic. That’s quite an accomplishment for a brand new line of $149 putters. Look for the X-Ray putters to be released to retail in early May.
