Bob Bettinardi’s newest models for the 2024 BB line of putters share many characteristics of those which preceded but with some relatively minor redesigns to improve performance making use of input from Tour pros that play with them each week.
Said Bettinardi, “Working alongside our elite Tour staff and engineering team, we re-balanced each head aligning the Center of Gravity and moving the sweet spot into a more natural alignment with the eye. Every putt feels incredibly balanced and consistent.”
Rebalancing of the heads changed the location of the center of gravity and involved modifying the shape shoulders and bumpers, so the head aligned more easily at address. Heads of the BB series are all milled from one piece of 303 stainless steel and the faces with Bettinardi’s unique face milling which has been reworked to improve the sound—a critical factor in putter performance feedback. Face milling lines are slightly curved towards the heel and toe in a distinctive pattern to help achieve a consistent roll.
