TaylorMade Rossa Corza Ghost Putter

TaylorMade has introduced the first of three Rossa Corza Ghost putters. This mallet is designed to help with alignment… the white putter on a dark background (the grass) is said to stand out a bit more and make it easier to line up. TaylorMade even has a past chairman of the American Optometric Association’s Sports Vision Section speaking on behalf of the putter…

That high contrast maximizes stimulation to the retina and highlights the head’s shape and features. The contrast would be lower if the putter wereblack or gray because these colors are closer in luminance to the color of the putting green than white. White creates the biggest difference in luminance, hence maximizing contrast and promoting focus. Many golfers use the leading edge of the putter as part of their alignment strategy (by positioning the edge perpendicular to the imagined target line). So, this high contrast for the leading edge gives the golfer the best chance of squaring up the putterface at address. Also, the lines on the top of the putter are painted black to achieve maximum contrast against the white surface of the putter. All of these high-contrast alignment elements give the golfer the best possible chance of accurately aiming the putter.”

Sounds important. I don’t really know what it all means but it sounds good…

TaylorMade also called upon Rossa Tour Staff professional Dave Stockton to help with the design. Check out the video below as Dave fills us in on some of his thoughts…

I’m not sure if “contrastly” is a word but I get what he’s saying and the design makes a lot of sense to me. The Corza Ghost will hit retail in June with two more Ghost models coming in July.
