Orlimar introduces Montego putter with 360 degree alignment aid

FLUSHING, Mich. -- Orlimar has introduced the Montego putter, a new
precision-crafted milled mallet putter with a unique 360 degree alignment aid, resulting in improved form, accuracy and results.

"The Montego will appeal to golfers of all ability levels," said Nigel Matthews, product development manager. "The milled putter face provides a soft feel and visual cues not only to help the golfer align the putter head to the target but also to ensure proper positioning over the ball. Consumers who have tested the putter find the alignment technology easy to use and very effective."

The golfer simply aligns the three dimensional array of circles to achieve proper stance and alignment. The circle closest to the face is a cutout with an inset alignment circle; the golfer centers the inset circle within the perimeter of the cutout circle to ensure proper stance over the putter; the circular design ensures 360 degree alignment. The two split white circles provide both linear and spherical visual cues for proper putter alignment with the ball.

The Montego putter is a face-balanced, heel-shafted mallet, constructed of 304 stainless steel and has a head weight of 345 grams. The CNC milled-face putter provides a soft feel off the putter head and a more accurate roll. The perimeter-weighted Montego putter is available in 35 inches with a loft of 3 degrees and lie of 72 degrees.

The suggested retail for Montego is $149.99 and comes in right-handed only. The Montego putter is available Oct. 1.
