Matt Kuchar’s Putter: Rife Barbados

Matt Kuchar's Putter: Rife BarbadosMatt Kuchar took advantage of a final-hole bogey by Martin Laird to force a playoff and ultimately win the Barclay’s tournament today. Kuchar’s putter? The Rife Barbados.

We’ve always felt that the Rife Barbados presents one of the prettiest setups in the mallet category, as evidenced by the accompanying photo. It looks crisp, elegant and exquisitely poised.

The Barbados was first introduced in late 2006 and was one of the original entries into the the Rife Island Series line of putters.

This week, Rife announced four new additions to the Island Series due out this fall: the Rife Aruba putter, Rife Trinidad putter, Rife Monserrat putter, and Rife Cayman Brac putter.

Kuchar’s victory represents the second win for a Rife putter on the PGA Tour in 2010.

  1. Inserts vs non-inserts still tied, 52-52.

  2. Hah, it's down to the wire!

  3. Almost bought the Barbados after trying it out a few times. It was really sweet and lined up great for me. I still wish I'd bought it when I had the money.

  4. Recount – I think non-inserts actually lead 53-51.

    I think I got this one wrong. Trying to find pictures to see if she's using the old 2-bar metal face or the new 2-bar "hybrid" with the insert face.

  5. Good luck Ryan, it might be worth the wait!

    Thanks for the update, Ben.
