SWAG Golf Putters – Blue Ribbon Gear
It started with a single putter, partially revealed, inside a glass case at the 2018 PGA Show. From this mysterious beginning came a company that now generates so much buzz that they sell out every product release in seconds.
After two years of setting trends and delivering an increasing range of amazing putters, it’s time for SWAG Golf to be recognized as Blue Ribbon Gear.

What’s the Big Deal?
You would be forgiven for looking at SWAG’s putters [website HERE, Instagram account HERE] and thinking, “These are traditional shapes. What’s the big deal?” In fact, I’ve been asked that question many times, even by other Plugged In Golf writers. The answer comes in three parts.
No one is making putters quite like SWAG. A SWAG putter is made almost entirely on a CNC mill without the limitations and inconsistencies that handwork brings to the process. This raises the bar on precision and consistency and allows for details like the perfectly smooth edges around the neck and the absence of the line on the flange.
Another part of the SWAG equation is a level of design and taste that other putter makers simply don’t have. When you’re dealing with tried and true designs, the line between art and garbage can be thin. SWAG is always on the right side of that divide, nailing the proportions and dimensions so the putter looks perfect behind the ball.
Doing Things Right
The final thing is really the collection of lots of little things. SWAG does everything they can to elevate their putters. Where other manufacturers might offer a black shaft as an upgrade, it’s stock on a SWAG. High end leather grips are standard. Their shaft bands are holographic and cool instead of being something you want to peel off. They use headcovers with magnetic closures rather than Velcro, and there’s no third party branding. Even the tape they use to seal their boxes has style.
All That, Plus Style
SWAG would be a Blue Ribbon Gear winner just for the putters, but we should also recognize that they’ve raised the bar on head covers and left every other putter maker struggling to catch up.
We can start with the quality: you’d need three covers from other makers to equal the stitch count on a SWAG headcover. Then there’s the style and the range of influences they’ve tapped into. From memes to video games to movies to things that are uniquely SWAG, their covers are bold, unique, and unpredictable. Some other makers have tried to imitate their style, but no one has come close.
