While Cleveland Golf may be known best for the wedges it produces, the clubmaker also is recognized for the putters it makes – such as the recently released TFi 2135 Mallet Styles line and the Huntington Beach Collection.
There are four models in the Mallet series, and they take their name from the sightline, which is positioned at what company engineers say is the exact center axis of the golf ball – 21.35 millimeters from the ground. That is designed to help players achieve perfect putting alignment regardless of their address positions.
As for the TFi in that appellation, that refers to the TFi insert, which boasts a milled, copper-infused aluminum face over a soft, polymer layer that is made to enhance feel as it also helps to redistribute some 90 grams of mass to the perimeter of the putter body in an effort to increase forgiveness.
Three of those flat sticks are called Elevado, Mezzo and Cero, and they are available in 33-, 34- and 35-inch length options with a Lamkin Smooth Pistol grip. A counterbalanced version of the Elevado, in 35- and 38-inch editions with Lamkin Smooth Pistol Counter Balance grips, is offered as well.
As for the Huntington Beach Collection, which takes its name from the Southern California town in which Cleveland Golf’s North American operations are based, it consists of three milled putter models, each of which is made from soft 304 stainless steel.
The most significant feature in these is the precision-milled face, and that uses a coarse, diamond-shaped pattern that is intended to create more friction at impact, and by extension produce a more consistent and controlled roll. The individual models are named 1, 4 and 6, and they come in 33-, 34- and 35-inch lengths with Midsize Blue grips.
