PLD Milled

Hot List Silver 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: We suppose buying game-worn jerseys is a thing, but we don’t get it. Instead, give us a useful tool designed with direct input from the master. These models come from what tour players want to see, prodded by the engineers who know what works. The three relatively compact mallets in this family are each milled from 303 stainless steel in a four-hour process. In addition to the DS72 model used by Viktor Hovland and the popular Prime Tyne 4, the line now has added the slightly heavier, heel-shafted Oslo 4. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: These putters seem almost intuitively smart. The face’s deep-milling pattern provides a softer feel, and keeping the shaping of the angles, edges and ball-width cavities perpendicular or parallel to the target line ensures a proper aim. Read more>>>

Which One's For Me?
Prime Tyne 4
It features parallel wings and ball-width cavity in the flange. Its plumber's neck encourages a strong arc stroke.
Oslo 4
This rounded mallet with a ball-width cavity and a long-aiming line the length of the flange features a shorter slant neck. It's designed to work best with a strong arc stroke.
This compact rounded mallet features a double bend shaft and a face-balanced design that should work best with straight-back, straight-through strokes.

Player Comments
"Modern, like a brand new house in LA. It feels light, but with plenty of mass. The feel off the face is tour quality. On long putts, you don't have to smash it, and the touch is there for mid-length."
Handicap, 0
“Beautiful compact head with blacked out everything except for one line. A lot of right angles gives you precise lines. Very responsive.”
Handicap, 6
"Very simple, elegant look. The milled face stands out to me. This screams sophistication. I really like the feel of the ball coming off the face. It's a goldilocks—not too firm, not too soft—just right. Great on short and medium-distance putts. I know when I missed, it's because I read it wrong. It definitely makes the ball go where I thought it should go."
