new and notableNow Playing: Cleveland VP Milled
When it comes to putting, nothing beats solid fundamentals. However, in the past, many putters weren’t designed to help golfers achieve a proper setup. All that changed late last year when Cleveland introduced their VP series. Utilizing something Cleveland calls “Dual Axis Alignment,” the VP helps golfers set up to the ball so their eyes look directly down at it, making aligning the putterface and confident strokes a snap.

New for 2008 is Cleveland’s VP Milled Series, a line of putters that feature Dual Axis Alignment as well, but with heads that have been CNC-milled from 303 Stainless Steel (and feature a classic-looking platinum finish).

Like the original VP Series, the Milled Series comes in three different styles (two blades, one mallet), and each comes in three lie options (standard, flat and upright) and three lengths (33, 34 and 35 inches). With both lines, there’s a putter for everyone.

Putterhead: Steel
Putterface: Elastomer
Weight: Standard

Remember 150-yard markers? If you’ve picked up golf in the last 10 years, it’s safe to say you probably don’t.

Time was, people measured yardage in increments of 50 yards. To determine how far away from the green you were, you had to consult yardage stakes and estimate your distance or walk it off.

All that’s changed since things went digital. Handheld GPS units have flooded the market in the last few years, making it easier to get accurate yardage from anywhere on the golf course.

If your course still has colored stakes, check out some of the latest GPS offerings. You’ll never have to estimate again!
