Golf Digest Stix: Upstart Putter Company Extending Unique Offering

by E. Michael Johnson

Two French aeronautical industrialist and a golf professional partnered to found a French-based putter company, Argolf, which garnered some attention earlier this year when it introduced its first line of putters and got Jesper Parnevik to play its Lancelot blade on the PGA Tour Champions. Now the company is expanding its line with two new mallet offerings—the Avalon and Perceval, the latter having been used on the senior circuit by Rocco Mediate to close the 2016 season. The Avalon is a half-mooned shape stainless-steel putter with a milled face. The sole of this face-balanced putter is designed to rest flat on the putting surface with subtle curves on the toe and heel to prevent it from catching the turf on the backstroke. The Perceval removes weight from the center cavity and moves it to the heel and toe with small “wings.” The sole of the stainless-steel, face-balanced putter sits flat, like the Avalon, with curves on the toe and heel. The two new offerings bring Argolf’s total models to nine. The putters come standard at 35 inches in length and sell for $399. For more info, click here.
