Jason Day came to TaylorMade with a request for a putter similar in style to his Itsy Bitsy prototype, the putter he’s used for multiple wins on the PGA Tour, including his first major victory at the 2015 PGA Championship.
He asked for a putter that incorporated red, one of his favourite colours.
TaylorMade embarked on a mission to create a palate of colour options, working with Day throughout the process to create a colour he would favour.
When the final colour was selected, he proposed the team build him two different models, each showcasing the colour in a different way that would allow him to test and select which suited his eye before determining which would be put into play.
The Spider Limited putter features a black frame with tour red bumpers, while the Spider Limited Red incorporates tour red throughout the frame and bumpers
Day was first introduced to the putters in February and after testing both models, the Spider Limited Red made its PGA Tour debut at the RBC Heritage in mid-April and was used to win the Players Championship on Sunday.
Day prefers a seamless top crown and without alignment aid. The two models available at retail will differ slightly from Day’s personal putter and will include the alignment aid on the crown.
Made of a 304 stainless steel frame with a lightweight 6061 aluminum body that enables weight to be positioned at the extremities, the Spider Limited putters are designed to provide improved stability and high MOI.
Similar to the original Itsy Bitsy, both new models incorporate a milled Aluminum Pure Roll insert with a gunmetal finish to promote better forward roll, increased directional accuracy and improved distance control.
