Bettinardi

Queen B

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: The two traditional half-mallets in this line are milled from a block of 303 stainless steel without any weights, face inserts or other affectations. The belief is that anything not pure steel disturbs the direct benefits of a pure milled product. Instead, Bettinardi focuses on a slightly heavier head weight to provide more stability. Also, the two models have different neck styles to appeal to players who have different degrees of arc in their strokes. WHY WE LIKE IT: Don’t take for granted the manufacturing precision behind these milled putters. The intricate crescent neck on the #11 (left) is a Bettinardi specialty on a toe-hang mallet, and the face pattern isn’t just decorative. Rather, a new tool was developed for the “mini-honeycomb” look to get an even softer feel.  Read more>>>

Which One's For Me?

This rounded compact mallet features a ball-width cavity and aiming line. The crescent neck provides a half-toe hang and encourages more of an arcing stroke.
14
This compact mallet features an elongated flange that stretches equally back from the topline into rounded corners in the heel and toe. The short slant neck features a one-quarter toe hang for players whose stroke is on a slight arc.

Player Comments
Low-Handicapper
"Rose gold is in these days. The top of the flange is attractive and subtle, with the curving. I love the low profile look and how it hugs the ground. Exudes smooth vibes. The grip has a subtle shaving at the top that fits your hands. An improved pistol. It all clicks."

"This isn't a putter, it's a piece of jewelry. It's beautiful, elegant, luxurious. the feel and roll of this putter is one of a kind. I loved every time I hit this putter. I would love to be the Jay Z to this Queen B."

High-Handicapper
"Gorgeous. Coppery, bronze color that looks ultra premium. Curvature seems very minimal but pleasing. Enough design but not too much. Has a very satisfactory sound that makes you feel like a pro who just hit a great putt. Made a lot of putts. Long putts were really easy to get close. Feels like an old friend."
