P2G2 Putters
                          To improve your putting, Providence Precision Golf Group (P2G2) had to depart from tired trends dominating four decades in putter design. Extensive testing showed that the company’s patented TopStrikeTechnology attains the best roll characteristics across the widest range of stroke tendencies, even on off-center hit. Simply put, you strike the ball at the optimum point where the natural energy of the putter is transferred cleanly to the equator of the ball, minimizing spin variables and maximizing the smooth feel of the putting stroke into true roll. Your putts are easier to line up and your speeds more predictable. You’ll think less and sink more putts farther from the cup with new-found confidence on the greens.

This unique balance eliminates a putter’s tendency to open up, resulting in more on-line putts and lower scores.
