ARGOLF Introduces New Putter – Mordred

JUPITER, FL – The newest addition to the ARGOLF family made its grand appearance in January at the 66th PGA Merchandise Show. MORDRED joins the award-winning Broceliande collection with its inspiration originating from the childhood fascinations of the company’s founder, Olivier Colas. MORDRED sold out in less than a week following the Show in Orlando but is now available again for orders.

Mordred was known as a notorious traitor who fought King Arthur at the Battle of Camlann, where he was killed, and Arthur was fatally wounded. The images depicting Mordred are reflected in the winged design of the putter which aids in stabilization and alignment, as well as its coloring.

With a lower center of gravity that surpasses all mallet putters in the ARGOLF collection, MORDRED boasts one of the highest MOIs available on the market. Precisely milled from a solid block of aeronautical-grade 7175 Aluminum, MORDRED appeals to the eye with its clean and sophisticated look.

Using the most advanced technology, MORDRED is shaped through a unique 5-axis milling process that differentiates itself from its competitors in design and performance due to its aerodynamic features. MORDRED also incorporates ARGOLF’s patented C-Claw technology for a more consistent roll and feel.

MORDRED’s club head is finished with a sharp grey color and orange sight line. MORDRED looks just as spectacular as it performs with a black PVD triple bend KBS shaft and grey and orange midsize Pure Grip.

MORDRED is available for purchase online at and at the ARGOLF Putting Lab in Jupiter, Florida. You may also visit an ARGOLF custom fitter in your local area.

Bridgestone Rebirths Popular “Test Drive” Golf Club Demo Program

COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf – the #1 ball-fitter in golf, recently relaunched its popular Test Drive golf club demo program. Test Drive, originally introduced full-scale in 2015, provides a low cost, no-hassle way for consumers to experience Bridgestone Golf hard goods prior to purchasing them. Test Drive features brand new kits of demo equipment from Bridgestone’s popular TOUR B JGR line of clubs shipped directly to a golfer’s home, office or club for in-person, on-course, real world testing.

Through Test Drive, consumers choose a “kit” of demo equipment based on their shaft flex and loft preferences on the Test Drive website to ship to their desired location.  Upon placement of the Test Drive order, Bridgestone Golf charges the debit or credit card provided immediately for $20.00 to cover the cost of shipping the demo clubs to the tester, as well as the cost of return shipping when the evaluation period has ended. In addition, Bridgestone Golf will place a pre-authorized hold on the card on file in the amount of the retail value of the demo clubs. This hold is not a current charge to a tester’s debit or credit card account, but serves as a precaution to guard against theft and damage.  Testers have 21 days from receipt of equipment to return the demo clubs to Bridgestone before the hold amounts plus applicable sales tax are charged to their cards.

“Bridgestone’s clubs have garnered a cult-like following among serious golfers,” said Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing Manager – Bridgestone Golf.  “Our reputation for quality forgings and high-quality construction has made us a popular choice of better players, especially.  That said, we have limited retail distribution where a niche audience of golfers have access to our clubs.  Test Drive allows us broaden our reach and provide golfers throughout the lower 48 with the opportunity to demo our award-winning offerings at their convenience, anytime, anywhere.”

Bridgestone’s new XW-1 Wedges will be added to the Test Drive site beginning in early March.
