Preview: 2010 Yes! MOI Series Putters

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.

  1. Nice looking, but for that price, you can almost pick up a Captain Morgan blade by Byron Morgan. Moving into the $300 range seems weird for a Yes! putter. For that price, there are some very strong offerings. You can even find the Betti Black carbon blade for about half that.

    MAybe it will be different after rolling them. Will it be 2x better than the Sophia?

  2. Fair questions, Sactown. I will say that the Yes! Dawn released in 2009 holds its own against any putter in the $300 range, in my opinion.

    But I understand the value question. I think it comes down to personal preference in matters of artistry, technology and aesthetics. And of course, personal budget.

    In terms of simply rolling the ball into the hole, it might be hard to justify any putter that costs three or four times more than the Cleveland Classic putters.

    But there are other value factors, such as craftsmanship, feel, technology and your own spiritual affinity for the stick. There are just some putters that I'm excited to pull out of the bag (I'm sure you know the feeling!), that make me want to practice more, and I think that's worth paying more for.

    But certainly, as more of the larger putter makers bump into the price points of artisans like Byron or T.P. Mills, they are opening themselves up to such questions.

  3. *drool* Oh my god I want to test both of those MOI putters. I've already had a talk with the Nicky and told it that it's probably going to have to go live with a new family soon.

    Is the Donna II the same as the Callie MOI from last year?

  4. On visuals alone, I would call them drool-worthy!

    I think that the Donna II will be similar to the Donna, with the extended flange.

  5. Talk is cheap! What are your measured MOI results? Everyone claims to have a high MOI. Where is the science?
