Bettinardi Golf's latest limited-edition putter has Hawaiian theme

As with most putter companies, Bettinardi Golf has its production-run models and then it produces one-offs or limited edition putters. With the PGA Tour kicking off the new year in Hawaii for the Sentry Tournament of Champions it was only fitting the company start 2018 by unveiling its limited-run BB1 Tiki half toe-hang blade putter.

Milled from carbon steel with a matte black PVD finish, the face is milled to produce a pattern reminiscent of island waves spears and shark’s teeth. Not simply decorative, the putter employs the company’s F.I.T. Face technology where material is removed from the face to produce a soft feel at impact.

This is the third year that company has offered a limited-edition Tiki putter (with some being gifted to tour players). Only 250 of the blade-style BB1 Tiki putters will be produced with a selling price of $495 each. For more information, go to bettinardi.com/the-hive.
