Yes! Golf is charging into the new year with its new MOI Series putters, as well as the new Donna II putter, all of which will be available starting on February 1.
We saw prototypes of the two MOI Series putters at the PGA Fall Expo in September and were immediately enamored with their two-tone look.
Following are the specs of the MOI Series putters in the words of Blair Philip, Yes! Golf’s directior of research and development:
Yes! Mollie putter ($299; pictured above): Multi-material mallet. The Mollie putter is a familiar shape with many technologies working for the player simultaneously.The back of the putter is fitted with a section of ultra-heavy tungsten which significantly increases the MOI of the putter when combined with the ultra light face of aeronautical-grade 6061 aluminum. The body is made of 303 stainless steel and the entire club is CNC milled to perfection. The light “soft” face and the heavy back make this putter extremely forgiving without being too huge. It also has the added advantage of the C-Groove technology found on all Yes! putters, which gives the ball an efficient over-the top rolling motion.
Yes! Morgan putter ($299): Multi-Material toe-down blade. The Morgan putter is fashioned after what could be considered the most classic shape ever in putter design history. This blade-style putter is made in the same way that Mollie is with a light aluminum face and a heavy tungsten, back making it as forgiving as any club can be for its size and shape. An easy to use blade was the goal. and YES! Golf has delivered. Morgan has an MSRP of $350
Meanwhile, Yes!’s popular Donna model will enjoy a fresh iteration in 2010 with the release of the Donna II putter. Here is he lowdown, in the words of Blair Philip:
Yes! Donna II putter ($249): This is also a multi-material design that features the same construction as the original Donna putter by YES! Golf that has won so many tournaments worldwide, including the 2008 Tournament Players’ Championship and World Cup. The Donna II is a toe-down “hybrid mallet” with a plumber’s connection that is incredibly easy to use. The face and hosel section are made of 6061 aluminum and the back of the putter is made of 303 stainless steel. The heel and toe weighting are very obvious since the back of the putter actually comes through the face of the putter to maximize MOI. The shape is somewhere between a blade and a mallet, so this putter will appeal to just about everyone. Donna is also fully CNC milled.
Stay tuned to PutterZone.com this week as we continue our previews of 2010 putters that will be featured at the PGA Merchandise Show in January.
