TP Black Copper Collection
These mini-mallets get your attention for their old-school finish, but they have forgiveness benefits, too. Take the Ardmore 3 (pictured). It’s narrow, but a section in the back has been removed. That leaves a gap the width of a golf ball to promote better alignment. It also allows more weight to be placed in the extreme heel and toe for extra stability on off-center hits. The grooves on the aluminum face insert angle downward to reduce backspin.
