Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Why We Like It

Moment of inertia sounds wonky, but it’s simple: “Replace heavy with light wherever you can. Then redistribute heavy to make the head deliver consistent speed for every impact.” LA Golf’s mallets get rid of “heavy” in the body, replacing it entirely with “light” (carbon composite, which is five times less dense than steel). This frees up room to redistribute “heavy” (super dense tungsten) at the tips of this pronged mallet. The result is ultra-high MOI, or stability on off-center hits so that your worst hits still roll close to your best hits.

Characteristics

  • The carbon-composite body frees up mass for heavy tungsten to be placed in the perimeter for extra stability.
  • The face insert features descending lofts from top to bottom (4 degrees to 1 degree) so that mis-hits high and low on the face launch like center hits for better roll.
  • The standard shaft is LAGolf P-Series for less twisting, more stability and reduced vibration.
  • Two models (Malibu, Malibu X), three hosel options (slant neck, face-balanced slant, plumber’s neck); head weight: 363 grams; lengths: 33-36 inches; loft: 1-4

Highlights

  • Top 5 firmest-feeling mallet putters, high-handicaps
  • Top 5 lightest-feeling mallet putters, all handicap groups
  • Top 5 best-rated mallet putters, low-handicaps
