Orlimar has released its Tad Moore Signature Series of putters this month. Each putter in the series combines traditional shapes with game improvement features and a patented washboard face milling. The company says the putters give golfers consistency, accuracy and better distance control on every stroke.
"Washboard-face milled putters improve roll and performance compared to other putter faces," said Tad Moore, golf club designer. "I have found that new golf balls with different cover materials such as urethane react to the washboard face much better. The ball off of these putters has a better launch and rolls more consistent and accurate."

The heel-shafted putter, features a cambered sole, sight line in the flange and is heel and toe weighted. The loft is 3.5 degrees, length is 35 inches, toe down.
TMO - 2: A slightly wider blade with a carbon steel ahead and a plumber neck hosel, thin topline and sloping heel-and toe-weighted bumper.

TMO- 3: A classic design of a wide-sole, heel-shafted blade with a carbon steel head. This is a perfect putter for a player who putts with an arc, because of its open-to-shut swing style. The wide sole utilizes sight lines in the cavity to improve the look and alignment. The loft is 3.5 degrees, length is 35 inches, toe down.
TMO - 4 (TadPole): The perimeter-weighted non-traditional T-shaped mallet putter features an aluminum head for a solid yet softer feel at impact. It is a center-shafted putter with a long topline to aid in alignment. Rear weighting provides performance on miss-hits and the outer circular ring balances the weight on the edges to aid in the MOI, resulting in amazing, feel and directional control. The loft is 3.5 degrees; length is 35 inches and is face balanced.
"Customers are very pleased with the look, feel and sound of the putters," said Alex Resnik, product marketing specialist. "Tad has an incredible reputation in the industry for innovation and quality of work in his club designs. Our customers especially like the classic shape of the putters."
