Last year, Orlimar reached an agreement with renowned club designer Tad Moore to design a signature series of putters for the Michigan-based company. Recently launched, the signature series includes four putters that come with a suggested retail price of $249 each.
“We are fortunate to be able to partner with such a brilliant club designer that has an incredible reputation for innovation and quality work in the putter category,” said John Runyon, CEO and President, Orlimar. “His designs have a classic and timeless shape that appeal to the majority of golfers. The design elements that Tad is utilizing in the new series of putters will give golfers a more consistent roll and help them with distance control, which is one of the most important elements for good putters.”
Moore is recognized as one of the premier club designers in the world. He has been designing golf clubs since 1963 for amateur and professional golfers around the world. He has received many accolades for his club designs and holds several design and club patents.
“I am very excited to be working with Orlimar,” Moore said. “They always had a strong reputation for innovation, quality, and value. I hope with this new putter line, together we can bring the Orlimar brand back even stronger.”
