Padraig Harrington unveils New Putter shaft from Torpedo Golf

By Gavin • May 4th, 2007

Padraig Harrington unveiled his new putter shaft yesterday at the Wachovia Championship with amazing results. After his longest ever layoff from golf he jumped into the first round lead at -6

The Torpedo shaft has been developed by Dr Paul Hurrion owner of Quintic Biomechanics Consultancy. .

I was visiting with Dr Hurrion last week and he introduced me to the Torpedo Golf shaft, in his putting lab in Coventry, England ( the same town that Jaguar Cars are made in).

I had been testing one of his other putting tools soon to be released that gives precise feedback on putting accuracy. I was pulling my putts consistantly to the left,

he said try this and handed me the torpedo shafted putter.

He claimed that it increased the sweet spot and made badly hit puts go straight, I was sceptical to say the least. I picked up the putter had no practice swing and had a putt.

It wasn’t intentional but it was a bad swing, the type that on the backswing you know that it is wrong but you dont have the guts to stop. Anyway I followed through and completed the putt and to my amazement it went dead straight.

I said ‘ that cannot be right, using that shaft cannot be fair’ , Paul said it is and it has been approved by the relevant authorities.
