The putter bills itself as a hands free alignment tool allowing the golfer to step behind the putter to check the line. (watch video for best explanation)
Bloodline was founded by golf industry veterans, Brad Adams and Larry Bischmann, who are building on individual careers where they were leaders at companies that became #1 on the PGA TOUR and held dominant positions in the marketplace. The Bloodline name, which was conceived by Brad’s nephew, pays tribute to the Adams family’s success in the golf industry. Brad’s grandfather, Vale Adams, was a well-respected club professional from McHenry, Illinois. His father, Gary Adams, founded Taylor Made Golf and is known as the “Father of the Metal Wood”.
The Bloodline RG-1 Mallet putter features an innovative and patented design that allows a player to clearly see where the putter is aligned because they can walk behind it while it stands alone on the green. From behind the face, it’s possible to see the club, ball, target line, and hole without having to tilt your head or use your peripheral vision. After over 2 years of discussion and submissions, Bloodline’s RG-1 has received the decision notification that it “Conforms to the Rules of Golf”.
The proven recipe of removing mass from a specific part of a golf club in combination with utilizing more advanced materials is at the foundation of many of the improvements in driver technology. Bloodline applied this technique to produce an ultralight shaft/grip that allows the RG-1’s conventional head design to stand on its own.
