Carlsbad, Calif.–As the golfing world returns to Augusta just six months after DJ’s record-breaking performance Taylor Made honors his Masters victory by announcing the Dustin Johnson Spider Limited Commemorative Edition putter.
This truly unique design is built to mirror the specs of Dustin’s winning Spider. A seamless solid black crown is absent of any sightline, allowing him to aim with the topline while also promoting reliance on feel at address and during the stroke. In addition, it features a short slant hosel, a Counter Core SuperStroke GT 1.0 grip and two 9g weights in the heel and toe.
Subtle green accents have been added on the sole and back badge as a nod to the iconic venue, Augusta National, while a specialty box completes a springtime vibe. It is outfitted with the 2020 Season’s Tradition putter cover he used the week of the victory.
“Growing up in South Carolina, winning in Augusta was my dream. When that dream finally came true last fall, I was speechless. The win was special for many reasons, as is the putter that helped me get the job done,” Dustin was quoted saying.
The putter has been in Johnson’s bag for 13 of his 24 PGA Tour wins, including his second major championship and the two victories leading up to it.
During the week of his major triumph, he rewrote the record books with the lowest 72-hole score in tournament history at 20-under-par. He dominated off the tee, hitting 77% of the fairways while averaging 307 yards. In turn, he dominated from the fairways, hitting 60 greens in regulation for a total of 83% and led the field in proximity to the hole(30’8″). With only four dropped shots the entire week, he set another record for the fewest bogeys made by a champion.
While his ball-striking was superb, his work with the putter cemented his wire-to-wire victory. On the 12 greens he missed DJ one putted to save par nine times. In the final round, he closed the door on the field with birdies on 13,14 & 15, making putts of 13, 7 and 6 feet respectively.
Dustin continued, “This putter means a lot to me. For the golfers that get one, I hope it means as much to them.”
