The TaylorMade TP Patina Ardmore 2 putter is one of seven designs in the new range released in 2019.

The TP Patina range features the Ardmore 1, Ardmore 2, Ardmore 3DuPage – all four mallets putters – and the blades the Del MonteSoto and Juno.

All seven designs are jam-packed with the latest technology to help you hole more putts, and have a black nickel and copper colour scheme for an attractive worn look.

What TaylorMade says about the Ardmore 2 putter:

“(A) Single Bend Shaft (in the Ardmore 2) allows for an unobstructed view of the face from address.

“(The) Face-Balanced design (is best) for those with a straight-back and straight-through putting stroke.

“(A) Double Sightline frames the ball at address, while the dot provides alignment to centre of the face.”

TaylorMade TP Patina Ardmore 2 Design

Like the Ardmore 1 and Ardmore 3, the TaylorMade Ardmore 2 is a mallet shaped putter and one of four in total in the range.

The second of three Ardmore head shapes is a traditional long fang design and carries the classic look of this style of putters.

TaylorMade have worked hard at improving the TP Patina range with a thicker PureRoll aluminium insert increased in size by 5mm and air pockets reduced behind the insert to help ball striking.

As with all of the TP Patina range, TP sole weights can be adjusted to suit any swing weight and create a putter perfect for any type of putting stroke.
