Tour Edge has broadened their putter offering with the Template Series each of which has a center of gravity and moment of inertia optimized for that particular shaped head. The first Template series was a hit due both to their performance and relatively low price point. The 2023 series is in keeping with company founder David Glod’s long time strategy of providing clubs to recreational players with the latest design, materials and technology at reasonable prices.

The choice of PVD finishes (silver or black) complements the CNC milled Micro-Grooves which are 20% deeper plus wider than the earlier Templates in order to generate topspin quickly after impact. It also helps with the Template’s feel along with the fact the heads are made from the softest stainless steel available.

“The new Template putter series has taken leaps and bounds in the look and feel department,” said Glod. “This putter line is bringing together today’s technology with classic putter designs and perfectly blending the two, just like what Template golf holes are designed to do in course architecture.”

The Template name comes from the use of a template golf hole in golf course architecture. Template holes were first utilized by course architect C.B. Macdonald. He spent his early years in Chicago and as a course designer instituted about 20 different template holes basing them on holes from well-known courses like St. Andrews, Prestwick, and North Berwick.
