There’s no denying the TaylorMade Spider putters are amongst the most recognisable in the world, using unique shapes and materials to deliver performance in high-MOI mallets. Now they have a whole new family and look.


TaylorMade Golf Company this week introduced the Spider GT family with four new additions to the acclaimed Spider franchise: Spider GT, Spider GT Notchback, Spider GT Rollback and Spider GT Splitback. The four models are aiming to set a new standard of performance and contemporary construction, headlined by a Spider GT with its modern wing design and ultra-lightweight top plate.

Bill Price, TaylorMade’s Senior Director Product Creation for Putters, said: “Innovation has long been the bloodline of the Spider franchise. From its optimized stability frame to its countless victories on worldwide tours, every Spider putter is designed to deliver pure performance. With Spider GT, we have created our most angular and most stable Spider ever using a new modern wing construction similar to other high stability Spider putters of the past. With the removal of weight from the center of Spider GT, we have unlocked higher MOI and more stability from every angle.”


FIRST LOOK GOLF: TAYLOR MADE GT SPIDER PUTTER


The most striking feature of the Spider GT is the lightweight 145g top plate made from 6061 aluminum, which eliminates excess weight in the middle of the putter and carries a short sightline for alignment. Combined with the ultralight top plate, a first of its kind open frame multi-material design features two 90g steel side weights that push 82 percent of the putter’s total weight to the perimeter. This creates extreme stability on off-center strikes.

The Spider GT top plate is crafted from lightweight aluminum for both a premium look and increased durability compared to paint or PVD finishes. The four anodized finishes for Spider GT are silver, black, red and white for the Spider GT women’s model, which also features a three-dot sightline for alignment.

Spider GT’s contemporary design has the Pure Roll² co-molded insert for improved forward roll and ball speed consistency across the face. Pure Roll² is a firmer insert, manufactured of black TPU urethane with silver aluminum beams at a 45° angle designed to improve topspin across the face.


Spider GT will be available for preorder on 15 February and at retail shops beginning 4 March. The Spider GT putter comes in four distinctive colours; red, black, Silver and white.
