A week after helping Bernhard Langer win the Champions Tour’s Legends of Golf in partnership with Tom Lehman, the Heavy Putter remained red hot at the European Tour’s Open de Espana, helping Fabrizio Zanotti earn the equivalent of nearly $300,000 as the tournament’s runner up.
Zanotti’s model is the Heavy Putter B2-M (pictured here), which is one of the original Heavy Putter designs. He closed with a 65, and placed in the top ten in putts per GIR and putts per round. In four rounds, he didn’t record a single three-putt. It was his first overall top ten finish since joining the tour in 2007.
Word is that Zanotti switched to the Heavy Putter jus a few weeks ago. So far, so good, apparently.
There’s a sense here that the Heavy Putter is starting to gain tour traction as well as retail momentum, with the new Heavy Putter MID-WEIGHT models widening the net of consumer appeal.
