Forged Milled Plus One Putter
Prior to developing our new grindworks putter, we put extensive research into studying the many putters already on the market, created by many top notch, respected and experienced putter makers. We carefully examined all aspects of each putter, including designs, materials, manufacturing and came to the conclusion that the “Ping Anser” design was still considered the one of the best designs and favored by a large amount of golfers worldwide. This style putter can be soft and delicate but can be designed using weight in the heel and toe to improve consistency and ease of use.
However, as a golf club developer, we would not be satisfied with simply using a common putter shape. We wanted to take the design a step further. We spent many months testing different materials and different processing methods. After a year we finally settled on using JIS SUS303, a flexible and high performance stainless steel that is also durable and consistent. The process begins from the ingot, a block of the most pure form of steel, then CNC machined to take its shape. This slow and precise process already takes up a large portion of the manufacturing cost of the head. But it was adding an extra step, a “PLUS ONE” that would make our putter more unique.
We decided to FORGE the SUS303 material first, using controlled heat treatment to soften the material. We would then forge the material a second time in order to discharge excess carbon which would soften the head even more. This process made the flexible stainless steel even more flexible.
We then took the forged material back to the CNC machine and carefully produced a precise and beautiful putter. We believe that creating the best putter takes time and effort and we have gone through a long process to achieve something unique and special, our grindworks Forged Milled Plus One Putter.
The final head is 340g plus 2 x 20g weights in the sole for a nice and heavy 380g. The additional weight allows golfers to feel the putter head in their hands and produce a more natural stroke. For those who require a lighter head we also offer the head with 2 x 10g weights bringing he head weight down to 360g. The face features a deep crescent groove milling which helps prevent side spin and softens contact with the ball.
Please note that the Plus One putter can come as a parts kit, completely unassembled so that each individual can finish the putter to their liking or already assembled by grindworks. Please see note below for what is included with the putter.
