A new arrival in the putter market that is a great blend of old and modern design that deserves a good look is the Sacks Parente Golf Series 91 “Duke”. It is molded after the traditional short blade with a half mallet back-but re-invented with a whole lot of recent technology.
“The Duke” putter takes its inspiration from PGA TOUR Champions player Ken Duke who prefers that shape of putter and asked SPG engineers to incorporate its technologies into this look. The resulting Series 91 “The Duke” putter integrates SPG’s proprietary technological advancements, marrying classic design with minimalist sophistication.
“Knowing how much Ken loves the shape of this smallish half mallet design SPG putter, we wanted to give it as much technology as we could, not only for Ken, but for all golfers at all skill levels,” said Steve Sacks, SPG’s Co-founder. “We managed to create a putter that provides a soft feel at impact with a high-quality milled 303 stainless steel – and so much more.”
This classic looking putter is easy to line up, feels great at address and has a buttery soft feel that is light to the touch. The weighting contributes to much of the soft feel to give it a balance that helps keep putts online.
The Series 91 “The Duke” putter includes SPG’s three key performance technologies found in most SPG putters, such as Patented Ultra-Low Balance Point (U.L.B.P.) which means that weight is redistributed from the shaft and grip into the head. This technology enables a distinct feel, creating a smooth putting stroke that naturally squares at impact without a need to manipulate the head.
As in all SPG putters, the Series 91 has Weight-Forward Center of Gravity (CG) that maximizes face-forward CG to ensure consistent roll and minimized skidding– guaranteeing enhanced accuracy on the green. With an MOI of almost 5,000–almost unheard of in this putter size and shape–the chance of energy loss and off-center hits are rare.
To further help with accuracy, this putter is fitted with 50 grams of tungsten distributed in both the toe and heel and towards the front of the head, resulting in 77% of the head weight in the heel and toe.
Most of the Sacks Parente putters contain patented U.L.B.P. technology, face-forward CG, and ultra-high MOI. Test results from Golf Labs prove that these putters help golfers make more putts because of improved swing path, improved tempo, more distance control, better head release/closure, and more putter head feel.
