Gauge Design Golf Introduces The G2 Big Dog Mallet Putter

SAN MARCOS, CA, July 1, 2014… Gauge Design Golf, a premium golf company known for creating the most precise milled putters in the golf industry, today announces the introduction of the G2 Big Dog Mallet Putter.

“The Big Dog head design combines beauty, functionality and precision, and has been part of the Whitlam Golf collector series for a few years. We’re pleased to add this design to the Gauge Design G2 series of putters in a stainless steel, CNC milled version,” said David Whitlam, Founder and President, Gauge Design Golf.

The G2 Big Dog is a CNC milled mid-mallet putter made of 303 stainless steel. This solid feeling putter features a sightline on the flange, a slightly thinner top line, and big dog paw prints on the sole. Heel and toe miss hits compensate very nicely and still keep course with minimal dispersion.

The G2 Big Dog Putter is milled from a solid chunk of 303 stainless steel, with a head weight of 365 grams. It comes standard with a 70-degree lie, 3.5-degree loft, and is available in lengths from 32″ to 36″. MSRP is $350.


New qualifying rules block out young players

The Open Championship this year decided to scrap its 36-hole qualifiers on the European Tour and PGA Tour in favor of what effectively are 72-hole qualifiers.

Four leading players from the top 12 on the leaderboard at Congressional and the Greenbrier earn spots.

In Europe, the leading three players from the Irish Open, French Open and Scottish Open get into the Open. The John Deere Classic gets one spot.

It’s the same amount of qualifying spots as were available last year through both 36-hole qualifiers.
